Abstract

Parallel BLAS libraries have recently shown promise as a means of taking advantage of parallel computing in solving scientific problems. However, little work has been done on providing such a parallel library in LAN-connected workstations. Our motivation for this research lies in the strong belief that since LAN-connected workstations are highly cost-effective, it is important to study the issues in such environments. Dynamic load balancing is a method that allows parallel programs to run efficiently in LAN-connected workstations. Introducing dynamic load balancing leads to new design concerns for data distribution, sequential implementation, and library interfaces. Through a series of experiments, we investigate the influence of these factors. We also propose a set of guidelines for developing an efficient parallel Level 3 BLAS library.
