Unformatted text preview: as whether to notify all the threads or only the thread that is waiting for the queue on blocking queue, and whether to use nested locks or not. (3) Consider using distributed shared queues. Again, if possible use distributed shared queues, for a centralized shared queue may cause performance bottleneck. To make this discussion more concrete, we will consider the queue in terms of two specific problems: a queue to hold tasks in a Master/Worker algorithm and a queue to holds vertex IDs in breadth‐first graph traversal. Most of the solutions and implementations presented here can be found in Patterns for Parallel Programming[1]. (1) Defining ADT for the queue: Figure 1 illustrates Java implementation of the queue used in Master/Worker algorithm. Linked list structure is defined in class Node and put and take is defined. One can define the task queue as simple as an array that only contains integer values that represent task IDs. In any case, putting a new item exclusively accessing the head and taking the item exclusively accessing the tail, or last, is the common feature of a shared queue. Figure 2 shows CUDA implementation of the queue used in breadth first graph trav...

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
