Performance simulation of heterogeneous computing systems

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionScientificpeer-review


    We have developed a simulation environment (PSE) for performance analysis of heterogeneous computing systems. Our focus is on. systems with many core accelerators. As multiprocessor chips are constantly evolving, simulation is a viable tool to explore different configurations and to understand the hardware-software interaction. PSE is a resource reservation based simulator for layered models that describe the resource provisioning and resource usage within a system. To illustrate our methodology and our simulation environment, we present a small-scale demonstrative experiment. The demonstrative experiment shows how accelerated processing can be modeled. In the model, we connect a GPU into a NPU for video stream processing.
