Dynamic BSP: Towards a Flexible Approach to Parallel Computing over the Grid

Authors: Martin, Jeremy M. R., Tiskin, Alex V.


The Bulk Synchronous model of parallel programming has proved to be a successful paradigm for developing portable, scalable, high performance software. Originally developed for use with traditional supercomputers, it was later applied to networks of workstations. Following the emergence of grid computing, new programming models are needed to exploit its potential. We consider the main issues relating to adapting BSP for this purpose, and propose a new model Dynamic BSP, which brings together many elements from previous work in order to deal with quality-of-service and heterogeneity issues. Our approach uses a task-farmed implementation of supersteps.
