Intel® Threading Building Blocks Tutorial

Here’s what will happen. Arpan Sen Published on November 23, When Sun 25 Feb Links to information about Threading Building Blocks http: Check that TBB works.

It’s severely restricted in its usage; nonetheless, it’s quite effective if you want to create high-performance code. For an in-depth discussion of lock-free programming, see Related topics. Here are some of the properties of every Intel TBB task:.

TBB is available as both a commercial product and as a permissively licensed open-source project at http: One of the best things about Intel TBB is that it lets you parallelize portions of your source code automatically without having to get into the nuts and bolts of how to create and maintain threads.

Instead of applying a transformation on each individual array element, let’s say you want to sum up all the elements. Consider the following example:. Write some serial code to sum the arrays into a third result array.


Follow the instructions on the page https: Conceptually, running this code in a parallel context would mean that each thread of control should sum up certain portions of the array, and there must be a join method somewhere that adds up the partial summations. Instead, this article attempted to provide insight into some of the compelling features that Intel TBB comes with—tasks, concurrent containers, algorithms, and a way to create lock-free code. Hundreds of things are possible with Intel Tuforial tasks.

You must source this script before building the example or any TBB-enabled application! There also will be possibility to use USB sticks with pre-configured virtual machine images as well as to access remote machines through SSH connection instructions will be provided during the tutorial.

To run Intel TBB programs, you must have the task scheduler tbb initialized. Sign tb Sign up.

Parallel programming is the future, but how do you get to high-performance parallel programming that makes effective use of multicore CPUs? We’re going to use x86’s high-resolution timers to find out how long the summing task runs single-threaded, so we’ll know how much speedup we’ve gained by processing in parallel.

That’s about it for tasks. Listing 5 below shows the code. Along the way he owned the profiling chapter in the MPI-1 standard and has worked on parallel debuggers and OpenMP implementations.


Learning the Intel Threading Building Blocks Open Source 2.1 Library

It’s a far faster alternative to mutexes, and you could safely do away with the need for locking and unlocking code. Now, assume that the variable count from earlier is being accessed by multiple threads of control.

From the configured command line: The single-thread summing occurs at Lines of main. Listing 8 provides the code:.

They will also know the TBB library, have experience using its generic algorithms and concurrent containers to create a shared-memory parallel program, understand its features for heterogeneous programming and will learn how to build and execute a hybrid application. Of course, you can override this behavior if you want to control the maximum number of threads spawned. His interests include parallel computer architectures, parallel programming, runtime development, optimization and machine learning.

The copy constructor and destructor should be public, and you leave the compiler to provide the defaults for you. Notice the output file as it was done in section 3.
