    abstract = {High-level parallel programming is a de-facto standard approach to develop parallel software with reduced time to development. High-level abstractions are provided by existing frameworks as pragma-based annotations in the source code, or through pre-built parallel patterns that recur frequently in parallel algorithms, and that can be easily instantiated by the programmer to add a structure to the development of parallel software. In this paper we focus on this second approach and we propose P3ARSEC, a benchmark suite for parallel pattern-based frameworks consisting of a representative subset of PARSEC applications. We analyse the programmability advantages and the potential performance penalty of using such high-level methodology with respect to hand-made parallelisations using low-level mechanisms. The results are obtained on the new Intel Knights Landing multicore, and show a significantly reduced code complexity with comparable performance.},

    abstract = {Power-aware computing is gaining an increasing attention both in academic and industrial settings. The problem of guaranteeing a given
    QoS requirement (either in terms of performance or power consumption) can be faced by selecting and dynamically adapting the amount of physical
    and logical resources used by the application. In this study, we considered standard multicore platforms by taking as a reference approaches for power-aware
    computing two well-known dynamic reconfiguration techniques: Concurrency Throttling and Thread Packing. Furthermore, we also studied the impact of using simultaneous
    multithreading (e.g., Intel’s HyperThreading) in both techniques. In this work, leveraging on the applications of the PARSEC benchmark suite, we evaluate these
    techniques by considering performance-power trade-offs, resource efficiency, predictability and required programming effort. The results show that, according to the
    comparison criteria, these techniques complement each other.},

Elasticity is the term coined to describe the capability of applications to change dynamically their resource usage in response to workload fluctuations. This paper focuses on strategies for elastic data stream processing targeting multicore systems. The key idea is to exploit Model Predictive Control, a control-theoretic method that takes into account the system behavior over a future time horizon in order to decide the best reconfiguration to execute. We design a set of energy-aware proactive strategies, optimized for throughput and latency QoS requirements, which regulate the number of used cores and the \{CPU\} frequency through the Dynamic Voltage and Frequency Scaling (DVFS) support offered by modern multicore CPUs. We evaluate our strategies in a high-frequency trading application fed by synthetic and real-world workload traces. We introduce specific properties to effectively compare different elastic approaches, and the results show that our strategies are able to achieve the best outcome. "

We also present a methodology for performing transformation of source code that allows to target multiple parallel programming models. Another contribution is a rule based mechanism to transform annotated code to those specific programming models.

A challenging issue in the development of parallel implementations of such computations is efficient dynamic memory allocation. In this paper we study two parallel patterns for sliding-window computations and we discuss different implementation variants related to how dynamic memory is managed. The results show that the combined use of an efficient general-purpose memory allocator, and of a custom allocator for the pattern considered, results in significant performance optimizations.},

In this work we face this problem by adopting the Model Predictive Control technique, a control-theoretic method aimed at finding the optimal application configuration along a limited prediction horizon by solving an online optimization problem. Our control strategies are designed to address latency constraints, by using Queueing Theory models, and energy consumption by changing the number of used cores and the CPU frequency through the Dynamic Voltage and Frequency Scaling (DVFS) function of modern multi-core CPUs. The proactive capabilities, in addition to the latency- and energy-awareness, represent the novel features of our approach.

    abstract = {The topic of Data Stream Processing is a recent and highly active research area dealing with the in-memory, tuple-by-tuple analysis of streaming data. Continuous queries typically consume huge volumes of data received at a great velocity. Solutions that persistently store all the input tuples and then perform off-line computation are impractical. Rather, queries must be executed continuously as data cross the streams. The goal of this paper is to present parallel patterns for window-based stateful operators, which are the most representative class of stateful data stream operators. Parallel patterns are presented “`a la” Algorithmic Skeleton, by explaining the rationale of each pattern, the preconditions to safely apply it, and the outcome in terms of
    throughput, latency and memory consumption. The patterns have been implemented in the FastFlow framework targeting off-the-shelf multicores. To the best of our knowledge this is the first time that a similar effort to merge the Data Stream Processing domain and the field of Structured Parallelism has been made.},

However, choosing the right values for these knobs in order to satisfy requirements on performance and/or power consumption is a complex task and trying all the possible combinations of these values is an unfeasible solution since it would require too much time. For this reasons, there is the need for techniques that allow an accurate estimation of the performance and power consumption of an application when a specific configuration of the control knobs values is used. Usually, this is done by executing the application with different configurations and by using these information to predict its behaviour when the values of the knobs are changed. However, since this is a time consuming process, we would like to execute the application in the fewest number of configurations possible. In this work, we consider as control knobs the number of cores used by the application and the frequency of these cores. We show that on most Parsec benchmark programs, by executing the application in 1% of the total possible configurations and by applying a multiple linear regression model we are able to achieve an average accuracy of 96% in predicting its execution time and power consumption in all the other possible knobs combinations.},

However, the amount of resources allocated to an application is usually static and fixed by the programmer or by the runtime. While there are cases where such a static choice may be appropriate, other scenarios may require to dynamically change the amount of resources during the application execution. Choosing the right amount of resources to use in order to satisfy requirements on performance and/or power consumption is a complex task and testing all the possible configurations is an unfeasible solution since it would require too much time. We show some solutions to this problem that, by acting on the number of cores used by the application an on the frequency of these cores are able to provide guarantees on maximum power consumption or on a minimum performance level. We then outline the main results achieved by applying these techniques to some real applications.},

    abstract = {In current computing systems, many applications require guarantees on their maximum power consumption to not exceed the available power budget. On the other hand, for some applications, it could be possible to decrease their performance, yet maintaining an acceptable level, in order to reduce their power consumption. To provide such guarantees, a possible solution consists in changing the number of cores assigned to the application, their clock frequency and the placement of application threads over the cores. However, power consumption and performance have different trends depending on the application considered and on its input. Finding a configuration of resources satisfying user requirements is in the general case a challenging task.
    In this paper we propose Nornir, an algorithm to automatically derive, without relying on historical data about previous executions, performance and power consumption models of an application in different configurations. By using these models, we are able to select a close to optimal configuration for the given user requirement, either performance or power consumption. The configuration of the application will be changed on-the-fly throughout the execution to adapt to workload fluctuations, external interferences and/or application's phase changes. We validate the algorithm by simulating it over the applications of the PARSEC benchmark suite. Then, we implement our algorithm and we analyse its accuracy and overhead over some of these applications on a real execution environment. Eventually, we compare the quality of our proposal with that of the optimal algorithm and of some state of the art solutions.}

Skyline queries are a notable example. Their results consist of all the tuples whose attribute vector is not dominated (in the Pareto sense) by one of any other tuple. Because of their popularity, skyline queries have been studied in terms of both sequential algorithms and parallel implementations for multiprocessors and clusters. Within the Data Stream Processing paradigm, traditional database queries on static relations have been revised in order to operate on continuous data streams. Most of the past papers propose sequential algorithms for continuous skyline queries, whereas there exist very few works targeting implementations on parallel machines. This paper contributes to fill this gap by proposing a parallel implementation for multicore architectures. We propose (i) a parallelization of the eager algorithm based on the notion of Skyline Influence Time, (ii) optimizations of the reduce phase and load-balancing strategies to achieve near-optimal speedup, and (iii) a set of experiments with both synthetic benchmarks and a real dataset in order to show our implementation effectiveness.

    Abstract = {Parallelising sequential applications is usually a very hard job, due to many different ways in which an application can be parallelised and a large number of programming models (each with its own advantages and disadvantages) that can be used. In this paper, we describe a method to semi- automatically generate and evaluate different parallelisations of the same application, allowing programmers to find the best parallelisation without significant manual reengineering of the code. We describe a novel, high-level domain-specific language, Refactoring Pattern Language (RPL), that is used to represent the parallel structure of an application and to capture its extra-functional properties (such as service time). We then describe a set of RPL rewrite rules that can be used to generate alternative, but semantically equivalent, parallel structures (parallelisations) of the same application. We also describe the RPL Shell that can be used to evaluate these parallelisations, in terms of the desired extra-functional properties. Finally, we describe a set of C++ refactorings, targeting OpenMP, Intel TBB and FastFlow parallel programming models, that semi-automatically apply the desired parallelisation to the application's source code, therefore giving a parallel version of the code. We demonstrate how the RPL and the refactoring rules can be used to derive efficient parallelisations of two realistic C++ use cases (Image Convolution and Ant Colony Optimisation).},

MEC has been approached using heuristics, integer linear programming, and fixed-parameter tractability (FPT), including approaches whose runtime is exponential in the length of the DNA fragments obtained by the sequencing process. Technological improvements are currently increasing fragment length, which drastically elevates computational costs for such methods. We present pWhatsHap, a multi-core parallelisation of WhatsHap, a recent FPT optimal approach to MEC. WhatsHap moves complexity from fragment length to fragment overlap and is hence of particular interest when considering sequencing technology's current trends. pWhatsHap further improves the efficiency in solving the MEC problem, as shown by experiments performed on datasets with high coverage.},

Its efficiency mainly comes from the optimized implementation of the base communication mechanisms and from its layered design. FastFlow eventually provides the parallel applications programmers with a set of ready-to-use, parametric algorithmic skeletons modeling the most common parallelism exploitation patterns. The algorithmic skeleton provided by FastFlow may be freely nested to model more and more complex parallelism exploitation patterns. This tutorial describes the ``core'' FastFlow, that is the set of skeletons supported since version 1.0 in FastFlow, and outlines the recent advances aimed at (i) introducing new, higher level skeletons and (ii) targeting networked multi cores, possibly equipped with GPUs, in addition to single multi/many core processing elements.

    abstract = {Determining the right amount of resources needed for a given computation is a critical problem. In many cases, computing systems are configured to use an amount of resources to manage high load peaks even though this cause energy waste when the resources are not fully utilised. To avoid this problem, adaptive approaches are used to dynamically increase/decrease computational resources depending on the real needs. A different approach based on Dynamic Voltage and Frequency Scaling (DVFS) is emerging as a possible alternative solution to reduce energy consumption of idle CPUs by lowering their frequencies. In this work, we propose to tackle the problem in stream parallel computations by using both the classic adaptivity concepts and the possibility provided by modern CPUs to dynamically change their frequency. We validate our approach showing a real network application that performs Deep Packet Inspection over network traffic. We are able to manage bandwidth changing over time, guaranteeing minimal packet loss during reconfiguration and minimal energy consumption.},

    Abstract = { With the wide diffusion of parallel architectures parallelism has become an indispensable factor in the application design. However, the cost of the parallelization process of existing applications is still too high in terms of time-to-development, and often requires a large effort and expertise by the programmer. The REPARA methodology consists in a systematic way to express parallel patterns by annotating the source code using C+ +11 attributes transformed automatically in a target parallel code based on parallel programming libraries (e.g. FastFlow, Intel TBB). In this paper we apply this approach in the parallelization of a real high-frequency trading application. The description shows the effectiveness of the approach in easily prototyping several parallel variants of the same code. We also propose an extension of a REPARA attribute to express a user-defined scheduling strategy, which makes it possible to design a high-throughput and low-latency parallelization of our code outperforming the other parallel variants in most of the considered test-cases.},

    Abstract = {Structured parallel programming, and in particular programming models using the algorithmic skeleton or parallel design pattern concepts, are increasingly considered to be the only viable means of supporting effective development of scalable and efficient parallel programs. Structured parallel programming models have been assessed in a number of works in the context of performance. In this paper we consider how the use of structured parallel programming models allows knowledge of the parallel patterns present to be harnessed to address both performance and energy consumption. We consider different features of structured parallel programming that may be leveraged to impact the performance/energy trade-off and we discuss a preliminary set of experiments validating our claims.

They return the points whose attribute vector is not dominated by any other point. Due to their importance in real-time scenarios, skyline queries have been studied both in terms of sequential algorithms and parallel implementations for multiprocessors and clusters. Recently, with the advent of the Data Stream Processing paradigm, skyline queries have been computed over continuous data streams according to the sliding window model. Although sequential algorithms have been proposed for continuous skyline queries, few works targeting modern parallel architectures exist. This paper contributes to the current
    literature by proposing a parallel implementation on multicores. We provide a description of our parallelization by focusing on the cooperation pattern between parallel functionalities, optimizations related to the reduce phase, and load-balancing strategies. Finally, we show experiments using different point distributions, arrival rates and window lengths.},

We show how an implementation of RISC-pb2l can be realised via the FastFlow framework and present experimental evidence of the feasibility and efficiency of the approach.},

The extreme optimisation of sequential algorithms is then no longer sufficient to squeeze the real machine power, which can be only exploited via thread-level parallelism. Decision tree algorithms exhibit natural concurrency that makes them suitable to be parallelised. This paper presents an in-depth study of the parallelisation of an implementation of the C4.5 algorithm for multi-core architectures. We characterise elapsed time lower bounds for the forms of parallelisations adopted, and achieve close to optimal performances. Our implementation is based on the FastFlow parallel programming environment and it requires minimal changes to the original sequential code.},

    Abstract = {The paper arguments are on enabling methodologies for the design of a fully parallel, online, interactive tool aiming to support the bioinformatics scientists .In particular, the features of these methodologies, supported by the FastFlow parallel programming framework, are shown on a simulation tool to perform the modeling, the tuning, and the sensitivity analysis of stochastic biological models. A stochastic simulation needs thousands of independent simulation trajectories turning into big data that should be analysed by statistic and data mining tools. In the considered approach the two stages are pipelined in such a way that the simulation stage streams out the partial results of all simulation trajectories to the analysis stage that immediately produces a partial result. The simulation-analysis workflow is validated for performance and effectiveness of the online analysis in capturing biological systems behavior on a multicore platform and representative proof-of-concept biological systems. The exploited methodologies include pattern-based parallel programming and data streaming that provide key features to the software designers such as performance portability and efficient in-memory (big) data management and movement. Two paradigmatic classes of biological systems exhibiting multistable and oscillatory behavior are used as a testbed.},

    abstract = {Shared-memory and message-passing are two opposite models to develop parallel computations. The shared-
    memory model, adopted by existing frameworks such as OpenMP,represents a de-facto standard on multi-/many-core architectures. However, message-passing deserves to be studied for its inherent properties in terms of portability and flexibility as well as for its better ease of debugging. Achieving good performance from the use of messages in shared-memory architectures requires an efficient implementation of the run-time support. This paper investigates the definition of a delegation mechanism on multi-threaded architectures able to: (i) overlap communications with calculation phases; (ii) parallelize distribution and collective operations. Our ideas have been exemplified using two parallel benchmarks on the Intel Phi, showing that in these applications our message-passing support outperforms MPI and reaches similar
    performance compared to standard OpenMP implementations.},

    Abstract = {Traditionally, skeleton based parallel programming frameworks support data parallelism by providing the pro- grammer with a comprehensive set of data parallel skeletons, based on different variants of map and reduce patterns. On the other side, more conventional parallel programming frameworks provide application programmers with the possibility to introduce parallelism in the execution of loops with a relatively small programming effort. In this work, we discuss a ``ParallelFor'' skeleton provided within the FastFlow framework and aimed at filling the usability and expressivity gap between the classical data parallel skeleton approach and the loop parallelisation facilities offered by frameworks such as OpenMP and Intel TBB. By exploiting the low run-time overhead of the FastFlow parallel skeletons and the new facilities offered by the C++11 standard, our ParallelFor skeleton succeeds to obtain comparable or better performance than both OpenMP and TBB on the Intel Phi many-core and Intel Nehalem multi-core for a set of benchmarks considered, yet requiring a comparable programming effort.},

    Abstract = {Modern computers are built upon heterogeneous multi-core/many cores architectures (e.g. GPGPU connected to multi-core CPU). Achieving peak performance on these architectures is hard and may require a substantial programming effort. High-level programming patterns, coupled with efficient low-level runtime supports, have been proposed to relieve the programmer from worrying about low-level details such as synchronisation of racing processes as well as those fine tunings needed to improve the overall performance. Among them are (parallel) dynamic memory allocation and effective exploitation of the memory hierarchy. The memory allocator is often a bottleneck that severely limits program scalability, robustness and portability on parallel systems.
    In this work we introduce a novel memory allocator, based on the FastFlow's allocator and the recently proposed CUDA Unified Memory, which aims to efficiently integrate host and device memories into a unique dynamic-allocable memory space, accessible transparently by both host and device code.},

We analyse the problem of parallel alignment and review the parallelisation strategies of the most popular alignment tools, which can all be abstracted to a single parallel paradigm. We compare these tools against their porting onto the FastFlow pattern-based programming framework, which provides programmers with high-level parallel patterns. By using a high-level approach, programmers are liberated from all complex aspects of parallel programming, such as synchronisation protocols and task scheduling, gaining more possibility for seamless performance tuning. In this work we show some use case in which, by using a high-level approach for parallelising NGS tools, it is possible to obtain comparable or even better absolute performance for all used datasets.

    Abstract = {InfiniBand networks are commonly used in the high performance computing area. They offer RDMA-based opera- tions that help to improve the performance of communication subsystems. In this paper, we propose a minimal message-passing communication layer providing the programmer with a point-to- point communication channel implemented by way of InfiniBand RDMA features. Differently from other libraries exploiting the InfiniBand features, such as the well-known Message Passing Interface (MPI), the proposed library is a communication layer only rather than a programming model, and can be easily used as building block for high-level parallel programming frameworks. Evaluated on micro-benchmarks, the proposed RDMA-based communication channel implementation achieves a comparable performance with highly optimised MPI/InfiniBand implemen- tations. Eventually, the flexibility of the communication layer is evaluated by integrating it within the FastFlow parallel frame- work, currently supporting TCP/IP networks (via the ZeroMQ communication library).},

    Abstract = {The stochastic simulation of biological systems is an increasingly popular technique in Bioinformatics. It is often an enlightening technique, especially for multi-stable systems which dynamics can be hardly captured with ordinary differential equations. To be effective, stochastic simulations should be supported by powerful statistical analysis tools. The simulation-analysis workflow may however result in being computationally expensive, thus compromising the interactivity required in model tuning. In this work we advocate the high-level design of simulators for stochastic systems as a vehicle for building efficient and portable parallel simulators. In particular, the Calculus of Wrapped Components (CWC) simulator, which is designed according to the FastFlow's pattern-based approach, is presented and discussed in this work. FastFlow has been extended to support also clusters of multi-cores with minimal coding effort, assessing the portability of the approach.},

In particular, we discuss the porting of the FastFlow framework on the Tilera TilePro64 architecture and the results obtained running synthetic benchmarks as well as true application kernels. These results demonstrate the efficiency achieved while using patterns on the TilePro64 both to program stand-alone skeleton-based parallel applications and to accelerate existing sequential code.},

Synchronization mechanisms should be optimized in order to account for different scenarios, such as the interaction between threads executed on different cores as well as intra-core synchronization, i.e. involving threads executed on hardware contexts of the same core. In this perspective, we describe the design issues of two notable mechanisms for shared-memory parallel computations. We point out how specific architectural supports, like hardware cache coherence and core-to-core interconnection networks, make it possible to design optimized implementations of such mechanisms. In this paper we discuss experimental results on three representative architectures: a flagship Intel multi-core and two interesting network processors. The final result helps to untangle the complex implementation space of synchronization mechanisms.},

    Abstract = {This paper describes the ParaPhrase project, a new 3-year targeted research project funded under EU Framework 7 Objective 3.4 (Computer Systems), starting in October 2011. ParaPhrase aims to follow a new approach to introducing parallelism using advanced refactoring techniques coupled with high-level parallel design patterns. The refactoring approach will use these design patterns to restructure programs defined as networks of software components into other forms that are more suited to parallel execution. The programmer will be aided by high-level cost information that will be integrated into the refactoring tools. The implementation of these patterns will then use a well-understood algorithmic skeleton approach to achieve good parallelism. A key ParaPhrase design goal is that parallel components are intended to match heterogeneous architectures, defined in terms of CPU/GPU combinations, for example. In order to achieve this, the ParaPhrase approach will map components at link time to the
    available hardware, and will then re-map them during program execution, taking account of multiple applications, changes in hardware resource availability, the desire to reduce communication costs etc. In this way, we aim to develop a new approach to programming that will be able to produce software that can adapt to dynamic changes in the system environment. Moreover, by using a strong component basis for parallelism, we can achieve potentially significant gains in terms of reducing sharing at a high level of abstraction, and so in reducing or even eliminating the costs that are usually associated with cache management, locking, and synchronisation.},

    Abstract = {The diffusion of the Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) has increased
    the amount of data obtainable by genomic experiments. From a DNA sample a NGS run is able to produce millions of short sequences (called reads), which should be mapped into a reference genome. In this paper, we analyse the performance of Bowtie2, a fast and popular DNA mapping tool. Bowtie2 exhibits a multithreading implementation on top of pthreads, spin-locks and SSE2 SIMD extension.
    From parallel computing viewpoint, is a paradigmatic example of a software requiring to address three
    fundamental problems in shared-memory programming for cache-coherent multi-core platforms: synchronisation efficiency at very fine grain (due to short reads), load-balancing (due to long reads), and efficient usage of memory subsystem (due to SSE2 memory pressure).
    We compare the original implementation against an alternative implementation on top of the
    FastFlow pattern-based programming framework. The proposed design exploits the high-level farm pattern of FastFlow, which is implemented top of nonblocking multi-threading and lock-less (CAS-free) queues, and provides the programmer with high-level mechanism to tune task scheduling to achieve both load-balancing and memory affinity. The proposed design, despite the high-level design, is always faster and more scalable with respect to the original one.
    The design of both original and alternative version will be presented along with their experimental evaluation on real-world data sets.},

A novel unbounded SPSC algorithm capable of reducing the row synchronization latency and speeding up Producer-Consumer coordination is presented. The algorithm has been extensively tested on a shared-cache multi-core platform and a sketch proof of correctness is presented. The queues proposed have been used as basic building blocks to implement the FastFlow parallel framework, which has been demonstrated to offer very good performance for fine-grain parallel applications.},

The algorithm, which exhibits good performance both in denoising and in restoration, can be easily and effectively parallelized to exploit the full power of multi-core CPUs and GPGPUs; the proposed implementation based on the FastFlow library achieves both close-to-ideal speedup and very good wall-clock execution figures.},

    Abstract = {Data flow techniques have been around since the early '70s when they were used in compilers for sequential languages. Shortly after their introduction they were also considered as a possible model for parallel computing, although the impact here was limited. Recently, however, data flow has been identified as a candidate for efficient implementation of various programming models on multi-core architectures. In most cases, however, the burden of determining data flow ``macro'' instructions is left to the programmer, while the compiler/run time system manages only the efficient scheduling of these instructions. We discuss a structured parallel programming approach supporting automatic compilation of programs to macro data flow and we show experimental results demonstrating the feasibility of the approach and the efficiency of the resulting ``object'' code on different classes of state-of-the-art multi-core architectures. The experimental results use different base mechanisms to implement the
    macro data flow run time support, from plain pthreads with condition variables to more modern and effective lock- and fence-free parallel frameworks. Experimental results comparing efficiency of the proposed approach with those achieved using other, more classical, parallel frameworks are also presented.},

The synchronisation of many processes racing to access a common resource (the shared memory) has been a fundamental problem on parallel computing for years, and many solutions have been proposed to address this issue. Non-blocking synchronisation and transactional primitives have been envisioned as a way to reduce memory wall problem. Despite sometimes effective (and exhibiting a great momentum in the research community), they are only one facet of the problem, as their exploitation still requires non-trivial programming skills.
    With non-blocking philosophy in mind, we propose high-level programming patterns that will relieve the programmer from worrying about low-level details such as synchronisation of racing processes as well as those fine tunings needed to improve the overall performance, like proper (distributed) dynamic memory allocation and effective exploitation of the memory hierarchy.},

    Abstract = {Today's business applications are increasingly process driven, meaning that the main application logic is executed by a dedicate process engine. In addition, component-oriented software development has been attracting attention for building complex distributed applications. In this paper we present the experiences gained from building a process-driven biometric identification application that makes use of Grid infrastructures via the Grid Component Model (GCM). GCM, besides guaranteeing access to Grid resources, supports autonomic management of notable parallel composite components. This feature is exploited within our biometric identification application to ensure real time identification of fingerprints. Therefore, we briefly introduce the GCM framework and the process engine used, and we describe the implementation of the application by means of autonomic GCM components. Finally, we summarize the results, experiences, and lessons learned focusing on the integration of autonomic GCM components
    and the process-driven approach.},

We introduce LIBERO -- built on plain Java and JBoss -- and discuss how multiple managers may be coordinated to achieve a common goal using a two-phase coordination protocol developed in earlier work. We present experimental results that demonstrate how the prototype may be used to investigate autonomic management of multiple, independent concerns.},

Specialized network cards can accelerate packet capture and thus reduce the processing overhead, but they can not achieve adequate packet analysis performance. For this reason most monitoring tools cannot cope with high network speeds. We describe the design and implementation of ffProbe, a network traffic monitoring application built on top of FastFlow, combined with several optimized parallel programming patterns. We compare ffProbe with two popular network monitoring probes. The results demonstrate that it can scale significantly better with number of cores and thus may be suitable for monitoring 10 Gbit networks using commodity servers.},

    Abstract = {The stochastic modelling of biological systems is an informative, and in some cases, very adequate technique, which may however result in being more expensive than other modelling approaches, such as differential equations. We present StochKit-FF, a parallel version of StochKit, a reference toolkit for stochastic simulations. StochKit-FF is based on the FastFlow programming toolkit for multicores and exploits the novel concept of selective memory. We experiment StochKit-FF on a model of HIV infection dynamics, with the aim of extracting information from efficiently run experiments, here in terms of average and variance and, on a longer term, of more structured data.},

While their parallelism and peak performance is ever increasing, their efficiency is often disappointing due to memory fence overheads. In this paper we present FastFlow, a programming methodology based on lock-free queues explicitly designed for programming streaming applications on multi-cores. The potential of FastFlow is evaluated on micro-benchmarks and on the Smith-Waterman sequence alignment application, which exhibits a substantial speedup against the state-of-the-art multi-threaded implementation (SWPS3 x86/SSE2).},

    Abstract = {Today's business applications are increasingly process driven, meaning that the main application logic is executed by a dedicate process engine. In addition, component-oriented software development has been attracting attention for building complex distributed applications. In this paper we present the experiences gained from building a process-driven biometric identification application which makes use of Grid infrastructures via the Grid Component Model (GCM). GCM, besides guaranteeing access to Grid resources, supports autonomic management of notable parallel composite components. This feature is exploited within our biometric identification application to ensure real time identification of fingerprints. Therefore, we briefly introduce the GCM framework and the process engine used, and we describe the implementation of the application using autonomic GCM components. Finally, we summarize the results, experiences, and lessons learned focusing on the integration of autonomic GCM components and the process-driven approach.},

    Abstract = {Shared memory multiprocessors come back to popularity thanks to rapid spreading of commodity multi-core architectures. As ever, shared memory programs are fairly easy to write and quite hard to optimise; providing multi-core programmers with optimising tools and programming frameworks is a nowadays challenge. Few efforts have been done to support effective streaming applications on these architectures. In this paper we introduce FastFlow, a low-level programming framework based on lock-free queues explicitly designed to support high-level languages for streaming applications. We compare FastFlow with state-of-the-art programming frameworks such as Cilk, OpenMP, and Intel TBB. We experimentally demonstrate that FastFlow is always more efficient than all of them in a set of micro-benchmarks and on a real world application; the speedup edge of FastFlow over other solutions might be bold for fine grain tasks, as an example +35% on OpenMP, +226% on Cilk, +96% on TBB for the alignment of protein

    Abstract = {Hierarchical autonomic management of structured grid applications can be efficiently implemented using production rule engines. Rules of the form "precondition-to-action" can be used to model the behaviour of autonomic managers in such a way that the autonomic control and the application management strategy are kept separate. This simplifies the manager design as well as user customization of autonomic manager policies. We briefly introduce rule-based autonomic managers. Then we discuss an implementation of a GCM-like behavioural skeleton -- a composite component modelling a standard parallelism exploitation pattern with its own autonomic controller -- in SCA/Tuscany. The implementation uses the JBoss rules engine to provide an autonomic behavioural skeleton component and services to expose the component functionality to the standard service framework. Performance results are discussed and finally similarities and differences with respect to the ProActive-based reference GCM implementation are discussed briefly.},

    Abstract = {Autonomic management can be used to improve the QoS provided by parallel/distributed applications. We discuss behavioural skeletons introduced in earlier work: rather than relying on programmer ability to design "from scratch" efficient autonomic policies, we encapsulate general autonomic controller features into algorithmic skeletons. Then we leave to the programmer the duty of specifying the parameters needed to specialise the skeletons to the needs of the particular application at hand. This results in the programmer having the ability to fast prototype and tune distributed/parallel applications with non-trivial autonomic management capabilities. We discuss how behavioural skeletons have been implemented in the framework of GCM (the grid component model developed within the CoreGRID NoE and currently being implemented within the GridCOMP STREP project). We present results evaluating the overhead introduced by autonomic management activities as well as the overall behaviour of the skeletons. We also present results achieved with a long running application subject to autonomic management and dynamically adapting to changing features of the target architecture. Overall the results demonstrate both the feasibility of implementing autonomic control via behavioural skeletons and the effectiveness of our sample behavioural skeletons in managing the "functional replication" pattern(s).},

When targeting non-dedicated clusters, workstation networks and grids, security has to be taken adequately into account in order to guarantee both code and data confidentiality and integrity. However, introducing security is usually an expensive activity, both in terms of the effort required to managed security mechanisms and in terms of the time spent performing security related activities at run time.We discuss the cost of security introduction as well as how some features typical of skeleton technology can be exploited to improve the efficiency code and data securing in a typical skeleton based parallel programming environment and we evaluate the performance cost of security mechanisms implemented exploiting state of the art tools. In particular, we take into account the cost of security introduction in muskel,
    a Java based skeletal system exploiting macro data flow implementation technology. We consider the adoption of mechanisms that allow securing all the communications involving remote, unreliable nodes and we evaluate the cost of such mechanisms. Also, we consider the implications on the computational grains needed to scale secure and insecure skeletal computations.},

    Abstract = {VirtuaLinux is a Linux meta-distribution that allows the creation, deployment and administration of both physical and virtualized clusters with no single point of failure. VirtuaLinux supports the creation and management of virtual clusters in seamless way: VirtuaLinux Virtual Cluster Manager enables the system administrator to create, save, restore Xen-based virtual clusters, and to map and dynamically remap them onto the nodes of the physical cluster. We introduces and discuss VirtuaLinux virtualization architecture, features, and tools. These rely on a novel disk abstraction layer, which enables the fast, space-efficient, dynamic creation of virtual clusters composed of fully independent complete virtual machines.},

    Abstract = {Enabling high-level programming models on grids is today a major challenge. A way to achieve this goal relies on the use of environments able to transparently and automatically provide adequate support for low-level, grid-specific issues (fault-tolerance, scalability, etc.). This paper discusses the above approach when applied to grid data management. As a case study, we propose a 2-tier software architecture that supports transparent, fault-tolerant, grid-level data sharing in the ASSIST programming environment (University of Pisa), based on the JuxMem grid data sharing service (INRIA Rennes).},

    Abstract = {Autonomic management can improve the QoS provided by parallel/distributed applications. Within the CoreGRID Component Model, the autonomic management is tailored to the automatic -- monitoring-driven -- alteration of the component assembly and, therefore, is defined as the effect of (distributed)management code.
    This work yields a semantics based on hypergraph rewriting suitable tomodel the dynamic evolution and non-functional aspects of Service Oriented Architectures and component-based autonomic applications. In this regard, our main goal is to provide a formal description of adaptation operations that are typically only informally specified. We advocate that our approach makes easier to raise the level of abstraction of management code in autonomic and adaptive applications.},

We argue that such specifications provide a useful refinement step in allowing reasoning about implementation related issues ahead of actual implementation or even prototyping. As examples, we demonstrate how such extended specifications can be used for investigating security related issues and for evaluating the cost of handling grid resource faults. The approach emphasises a semi-formal style of reasoning that makes maximum use of programmer domain knowledge and experience.},

    Abstract = {The reverse engineering of a skeleton based programming environment and redesign to distribute management activities of the system and thereby remove a potential single point of failure is considered. The Orc notation is used to facilitate abstraction of the design and analysis of its properties. It is argued that Orc is particularly suited to this role as this type of management is essentially an orchestration activity. The Orc specification of the original version of the system is modified via a series of semi-formally justified derivation steps to obtain a specification of the decentralized management version which is then used as a basis for its implementation. Analysis of the two specifications allows qualitative prediction of the expected performance of the derived version with respect to the original, and this prediction is borne out in practice.},

    Abstract = {Skeletal systems exploit algorithmical skeletons technology to provide the user very high level, efficient parallel programming environments. They have been recently demonstrated to be suitable for highly distributed architectures, such as workstation clusters, networks and grids. However, when using skeletal system for grid programming care must be taken to secure data and code transfers across non-dedicated, non-secure network links. In this work we take into account the cost of security introduction in muskel, a Java based skeletal system exploiting macro data flow implementation technology. We consider the adoption of mechanisms that allow securing all the communications taking place between remote, unreliable nodes and we evaluate the cost of such mechanisms. In particular, we consider the implications on the computational grains needed to scale secure and insecure skeletal computations.},

    Abstract = {Semantics of skeleton-based parallel programming languages comes usually as two distinct items: a functional semantics, modeling the function computed by the skeleton program, and a parallel semantics describing the ways used to exploit parallelism during the execution of the skeleton program. The former is usually expressed using some kind of semantic formalism, while the latter is almost always given in an informal way. Such a separation of functional and parallel semantics seriously impairs the possibility of programmers to use the semantic tools to prove properties of programs. In this work, we show how a formal semantic framework can be set up that handles both functional and parallel aspects of skeleton-based parallel programs. The framework is based on a labeled transition system. We show how different properties related to skeleton programs can be proved using such a system. We use Lithium, a skeleton-based full Java parallel programming environment, as the case study.},

    Abstract = {Programming models based on algorithmic skeletons promise to raise the level of abstraction perceived by programmers when implementing parallel applications, while guaranteeing good performance figures. At the same time, however, they restrict the freedom of programmers to implement arbitrary parallelism exploitation patterns. In fact, efficiency is achieved by restricting the parallelism exploitation patterns provided to the programmer to the useful ones for which efficient implementations, as well as useful and efficient compositions, are known. In this work we introduce muskel, a full Java library targeting workstation clusters, networks and grids and providing the programmers with a skeleton based parallel programming environment. muskel is implemented exploiting (macro) data flow technology, rather than the more usual skeleton technology relying on the use of implementation templates. Using data flow, muskel easily and efficiently implements both classical, predefined skeletons, and
    user-defined parallelism exploitation patterns. This provides a means to overcome some of the problems that Cole identified in his skeleton ``manifesto'' as the issues impairing skeleton success in the parallel programming arena. We discuss fully how user-defined skeletons are supported by exploiting a data flow implementation, experimental results and we also discuss extensions supporting the further characterization of skeletons with non-functional properties, such as security, through the use of Aspect Oriented Programming and annotations.},

As an example, we take a parallel farm component which is "embarrassingly parallel", i. e. , free of dependencies, and adapt it to the wavefront processing pattern with dependencies that impact its behavior. We describe our approach in the context of Higher-Order Components (HOCs), with the Java-based system Lithium as our implementation framework. The adaptation process relies on HOCs' mobile code parameters that are shipped over the network of the grid. We describe our implementation of the proposed component adaptation method and report first experimental results for a particular grid application -- the alignment of DNA sequence pairs, a popular, time-critical problem in computational molecular biology.},

A way to achieve this goal relies on the use of environments able to transparently and automatically provide adequate support for low-level, grid-specific issues (fault-tolerance, scalability, etc.). This paper discusses the above approach when applied to grid data management. As a case study, we propose a 2-tier software architecture that supports transparent, fault-tolerant, grid-level data sharing in the ASSIST programming environment (University of Pisa), based on the JuxMem grid data sharing service (INRIA Rennes).},

Grid applications, built as compositions of ASSIST components, are supported by an innovative Grid Abstract Machine, which includes essential abstractions of standard middleware services and a hierarchical Application Manager, which may be considered as an early prototype of Autonomic Manager.},

    Abstract = {The design,implementation and deployment of efficient high performance applications on Grids is usually a quite hard task, even in the case that modern and efficient grid middleware systems are used. We claim that most of the difficulties involved in such process can be moved away from programmer responsibility by following a structured programming model approach. The proposed approach relies on the development of a layered, component based execution environment. Each layer deals with distinct features and problems related to the implementation of GRID applications, exploiting the more appropriate techniques. Static optimizations are introduced in the compile layer, dynamic optimization are introduced in the run time layer, whereas modern grid middleware features are simply exploited using standard middleware systems as the final target architecture. We first discuss the general idea, then we discuss the peculiarities of the approach and eventually we discuss the preliminary results achieved in the GRID.it project, where a prototype high performance, component based, GRID programming environment is being developed using this approach.},

The three further principles introduced are related to the ability to exploit existing sequential code as well as to the ability to target typical modern architectures, those made out of heterogeneous processing elements with dynamically varying availability, processing power and connectivity features such as grids or heterogeneous, non-dedicated clusters. We outline two skeleton based programming environments currently developed at our university and we discuss how these environments adhere to the proposed set of principles.

Special emphasis is put on the innovative methodologies, strategies and tools for dynamically adaptive applications that represent the necessary step for the success of Grid platforms.
    We start considering which are the fundamental features of Grid-aware programming environments, based upon structured parallel programming and components technology. Then we show how ASSIST evolved from its very first version, only targeting workstation clusters, to the current version, targeting Grids and solving many critical problems related to expressive power, flexibility, interoperability and efficiency. We also discuss how ASSIST deals with interoperability issues. Eventually we discuss how an ASSIST-based model for supporting dynamically adaptive applications can be derived.},

    Abstract = {The development of efficient Grid applications usually requires writing huge portions of code directly at the level of abstraction provided by the underlying Grid middleware. In this work we discuss an alternative approach, raising the level of abstraction used when programming Grid applications. Our approach requires programmers just to describe in a qualitative way the kind of parallelism they want to express. Then, compiler tools, loader tools and run time system take complete care of running the application on a Grid target architecture. This allows to move most of the cumbersome tasks related to Grid targeting and management from programmer responsibility to tools. This paper introduces the structured parallel programming environment ASSIST, whose design is aimed at raising the level of abstraction in Grid programming and discusses how it can support transparent Grid programming while implementing Grid adaptivity.},

We describe the use and implementation of skeletons on emerging computational grids, with the skeleton system Lithium, based on Java and RMI, as our reference programming syttem. Our main contribution is the exploration of optimization techniques for implementing skeletons on grids based on an optimized, future-based RMI mechanism, which we integrate into the macro-dataflow evaluation mechanism of Lithium. We discuss three optimizations: 1) a lookahead mechanism that allows to process multiple tasks concurrently at each grid server and thereby increases the overall degree of parallelism, 2) a lazy taskbinding technique that reduces interactions between grid servers and the task dispatcher, and 3) dynamic improvements that optimize the collecting of results and the work-load balancing. We report experimental results that demonstrate the improvements due to our optimizations on various testbeds, including a heterogeneous grid-like environment.},

High-performance components are characterized by a programming model that integrates the concepts of structured parallelism, component interaction, compositionality, and adaptivity. We show that ASSIST, the prototype of parallel programming environment currently under development at our group, is a suitable basis to capture all the desired features of the component model in a flexible and efficient manner. For the sake of interoperability, ASSIST modules or programs are automatically encapsulated in standard frameworks; currently, we are experimenting Web Services and the CORBA Component Model. Grid applications, built as compositions of ASSIST components and possibly other existing (legacy) components, are supported by an innovative Grid Abstract Machine, that includes essential abstractions of standard middleware services and a hierarchical Application Manager (AM). AM supports static allocation and dynamic reallocation of adaptive applications according to a performance contract, a reconfiguration strategy, and a performance model.},

    Abstract = {One of the most promising technical innovations in present day computing is the invention of grid technologies which harness the computational power of widely distributed collections of computers. However, the programming and optimisation burden of a low level approach to grid computing is clearly unacceptable for large scale, complex applications. The development of grid applications can be simplified by using high-level programming environments. In the present work, we address the problem of the mapping of a high-level grid application onto the computational resources. In order to optimise the mapping of the application, we propose to automatically generate performance models from the application using the process algebra PEPA. We target in this work applications written with the high-level environment ASSIST, since the use of such a structured environment allows us to automate the study of the application more effectively.},

    Abstract = {Adaptation means that the behavior of a software component is adjusted to application or platform-specific requirements: new components required in a particular application do not need to be developed from scratch when available components can be adapted accordingly. Instead of introducing a new adaptation syntax (as it is done, e. g. , in AOP), we describe adaptations in the context of Java-based Higher-Order Components (HOCs). HOCs incorporate a code parameter plugin mechanism enabling adaptations on the grid. Our approach is illustrated using a case study of sequence alignment. We show how a HOC with the required provisions for data dependencies in this application can be generated by adapting a farm component, which is "embarrassingly parallel", i.e., free of data dependencies. This way, we could reuse the efficient farm implementation from the Lithium library, although our case study exhibits the wavefront pattern of parallelism which is different from the farm.},

We describe a schema suitable for the description of both functional and parallel semantics of skeletal languages which is aimed at filling this gap. The proposed schema of semantics represents a handy framework to prove the correctness and validate different rewriting rules. These can be used to transform a skeleton program into a functionally equivalent but possibly faster version.},

Being based on algoritmical skeletons and coordination languages technologies, the programming environment relieves the programmer from a number of cumbersome, error prone activities that are required when using traditional parallel programming environments. ASSIST has been specifically designed to be easily customizable in order to experiment different implementation techniques, solutions, algorithms or back-ends any time new features are required or new technologies become available. In this work we discuss how this goal has been achieved and how the current ASSIST programming environment has been already used to experiment solutions not implemented in the first version of the tool.},

Lithium is implemented as a Java package and represents both the first skeleton based programming environment in Java and the first complete skeleton based Java environment exploiting macro-data flow implementation techniques.
    Lithium supports a set of user code optimizations which are based on skeleton rewriting techniques. These optimizations improve both absolute performance and resource usage with respect to original user code. Parallel programs developed using the library run on any network of workstations provided the workstations support plain JRE. The paper describes the library implementation, outlines the optimization techniques used and eventually presents the performance results obtained on both synthetic and real applications.},

    delivering a service time which is equal or even better to the
    service time of the original skeleton composition, and achieving a
    better utilization of the processors used. The normal form is
    defined as a single farm built around a sequential worker code.
    Experimental results are discussed that validate this normal form.},

    Abstract = { Some skeleton based parallel programming models allow the programmer to
    use both data and stream parallel skeletons within the same program.
    It is known that particular skeleton nestings can be formally
    rewritten into different nestings that preserve the functional
    semantics. Indeed, the kind and possibly the amount of parallelism
    usefully exploitable may change while rewriting takes place.
    Here we discuss an original framework allowing the user (and/or the
    compiling tools) of a skeleton based parallel programming language to
    evaluate whether or not the transformation of a skeleton program
    is worthwhile in terms of the final program performance. We address,
    in particular, the evaluation of transformations exchanging data
    parallel and stream parallel skeleton subtrees.},
