A Lightweight Approach to Compiling and Scheduling Highly Dynamic Parallel Programs
Ettore Speziale and Michele Tartara, Politecnico di Milano
This paper describes a dynamic and lightweight compiler able to guide the execution of highly dynamic parallel programs at runtime without the need for a full-ﬂedged Just-In-Time compiler. The proposed approach allows us to apply proﬁtable optimizations that could not be used at compile-time due to lack of sufﬁcient information. It also enables us to optimize code fragments multiple times, depending on the speciﬁc conditions of the execution environment at runtime, while limiting the performance overhead to a negligible amount.
