Influences on Throughput and Latency in Stream Programs
Nguyen, Vu Thien Nga
Stream programming is a promising approach to execute programs on parallel hardware such as multi-core systems. It allows to reuse sequential code at component level and to extend such code with concurrency-handling at the communication level. In this paper we investigate in the performance of stream programs in terms of throughput and latency. We identify factors that affect these performance metrics and propose an efficient scheduling approach to obtain the maximal performance.
