Consider the following code. Each function in this code takes a long time to run.
f4(E, C, D)
A) // Line 1
// Line 2
// Line 3
// Line 4 Part A: 4 points
Draw a dependency graph with one node for each line. Part B: 3 points
How many threads can this code take advantage of? Part C: 3 points
If Line 1 takes t1 units of time to run, Line 2 takes t2 units, etc., then what is the speedup of a
fully parallelized version of this code over a sequential version? 7 ing Scaling Bottlenecks in6: Parallel performance metrics (15 points)
Problem Multi-Threaded Applications
The graph below shows the speedup vs. number of threads for three parallel applications: blackscline that goes highest), facesim (the squares), and cholesky (the triangles).
