Intel® TBB Tutorial | Threading Building Blocks
Listing 2 below introduces a few new concepts:. Goals By the end of the tutorial, attendees will be familiar with the important architectural features of commonly available accelerators and will have a sense of what optimizations and types of parallelism are suitable for these devices. To actually compile with TBB, we have to set some environment variables. The empty constructor just initializes the “function parameters” aka the class data membersand the operator function actually runs the loop.
The argument to the scheduler in Listing 1 is automatic, which lets the scheduler decide for itself on the number of threads. To run Intel TBB programs, you must have the task scheduler appropriately initialized.
They will also know the TBB library, have experience using its generic algorithms and concurrent containers to create a shared-memory parallel program, understand its features for heterogeneous programming inte will learn how to build and execute a hybrid application. The files are also available as syntax-highlighted HTML here fatals.
Consider the following example:. Is atomic the panacea of all coding woes? Here’s how you declare an integer to be of atomic type:. Take a look at Listing 9. Listing 8 provides the code:. No matter how threads are scheduled, there’s no way count would have different values in different threads. Now he leads the architecture and development of the Flow Graph API, including support for heterogeneity.
Finally, students will be provided with an overview of the TBB Flow Graph Futorial tool and shown how it can be used to understand application inefficiencies related to utilization of system resources.
Tutorial: Develop an Application With Intel® Threading Building Blocks
A handy shell script for tutkrial up the environment is infel in your TBB install directory. By the end of the tutorial, attendees will be familiar with the important architectural features of commonly available accelerators and will have a sense of what optimizations and types of parallelism are suitable for these devices. His research interests itnel heterogeneous programming models and architectures, parallelization of irregular codes and energy consumption. Hopefully, this introduction ignites your interest and Intel TBB will gain yet another ardent user—much like the author himself.
Motivation and background 90 An introduction to heterogeneous architectures — 45 minutes Important features of different accelerators such as GPUs and FPGAs How to measure performance and energy A survey of heterogeneous programming models How to determine if a computation is suitable for an accelerator Success stories: Check that TBB works.
Running the Example Binary Just invoke the binary with a single numeric argument the length of the array. You must source this script before building the example or any TBB-enabled application!
When splitting the array into sub-arrays for each individual thread, you want to maintain some granularity for example, each thread is responsible for summing N elements, where N is neither too big nor too small. The generic algorithms in TBB capture many of the common tutoial patterns used in parallel programming. Listing 5 below shows the code. The example is available as a tarball here.
To start off, after we initialize all the memory, parse arguments, etc. To wait for the child tasks to finish, the calling task calls wait see Listing 3 below. It’s a far faster alternative to mutexes, and you could safely do away with the need for locking and unlocking code. For an in-depth tutoril of lock-free programming, see Related topics.

The run method spawns a task that computes f but does not block the calling task, so control returns immediately. Due to energy constraints, high performance computing platforms are becoming increasingly heterogeneous, achieving greater performance per imtel through the use of hardware that is tuned to specific computational kernels or application domains. Abstract Due to energy constraints, high performance computing platforms are becoming increasingly heterogeneous, achieving greater performance per watt through the use of hardware that is tuned to specific computational kernels or application domains.
tutorkal Unpacke the Example Tarball wherever you like. There also will be possibility to use USB sticks with pre-configured virtual machine images as well as to access remote machines through SSH connection instructions will be provided during the tutorial.
Tutorial Intel TBB Task Based Programming | Threading Building Blocks
Hundreds of things are possible with Intel TBB tasks. Obviously, this increases container overhead. The documentation says it’s primarily for performance reasons.
That’s why count is declared as an atomic variable: It is impossible to do justice to a library the scale of Intel TBB in a single article. Concurrency comes at a price, though. Now, assume that the variable count from earlier is being accessed by multiple threads of control. It’s also way too low-level an approach—for example, you don’t have access to any concurrent containers, nor are there any concurrent intwl to use.
