Process and Thread Affinity for Intel® Xeon Phi™ Processors

The Intel® MPI Library and OpenMP* runtime libraries can create affinities between processes or threads, and hardware resources. This affinity keeps an MPI process or OpenMP thread from migrating to a different hardware resource, which can have a dramatic effect on the execution speed of a program.

Hybrid Parallelism: Parallel Distributed Memory and Shared Memory Computing

There are two principal methods of parallel computing: distributed memory computing and shared memory computing. As more processor cores are dedicated to large clusters solving scientific and engineering problems, hybrid programming techniques combining the best of distributed and shared memory programs are becoming more popular.

Hybrid Parallelism: A MiniFE* Case Study

This case study examines the situation where the problem decomposition is the same for threading as it is for Message Passing Interface* (MPI); that is, the threading parallelism is elevated to the same level as MPI parallelism.
