Communication Coroutines For Parallel Program Using DW26010 Many Core Processor
Communication between parallel programs is an indispensable part of parallel computing. SW26010 is a heterogeneous many-core processor used to build the Sunway Taihu Light supercomputer, which is well suited for parallel computing. There is the designing and implementing a coroutine scheduling system on the SW26010 processor to improve its concurrency, it is very important and necessary to achieve communication between coroutines for the coroutine scheduling system in advance. Therefore, this paper proposes a communication system for data and information exchange between coroutines on SW26010 processor, which contains the following parts. The designing and implementation a producer-consumer mode channel communication based on ring buffer, and it designs synchronization mechanism for condition of multi-producer and multi-consumer based on the different atomic operation on MPE (management processing element) and CPE (computing processing element) of SW26010. There is also the designing of a wake-up mechanism between the producer and the consumer, which reduces the waiting of the program for communication. The testing and analysis of the performance of channel in different numbers of producers and consumers, draw the conclusion that when the number of producers and consumers increases, the channel performance will decrease.
