HPCC 2010 Class II Submission: UPC and CoArray Fortran

This paper discusses the benchmarks, our implementation approaches and the performance we obtained. We include relevant segments of the code here; the complete source code and all result logs are contained in the full submission package.

The rest of this document is structured as follows. Section 2 describes the compilers we used in this submission. Section 3 describes the individual benchmarks, and how we implemented them. Having taken the committee’s criticism from last year to heart, we will emphasize the productivity aspect of each benchmark implementation. Section 4 discusses the performance evaluation of the benchmarks. The hardware architectures used are presented in Section 4.1 while individual benchmarks are discussed starting with Section 4.2. We conclude in Section 5.
