MPI Symmetric Mode is widely used in systems equipped with Intel® Xeon Phi™ coprocessors.
A look into the contents of the two "Pearls" books, edited by James Reinders and Jim Jeffers. These books contain a collection of examples of code modernization.
This article looks at several books that introduce developers to the topics of Message Passing Interface (MPI), parallel programming, and OpenMP*.
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.
Intel® Parallel Studio XE is a very popular product from Intel that includes the Intel® Compilers, Intel® Performance Libraries, tools for analysis, debugging and tuning, tools for MPI and the Intel® MPI Library. Did you know that some of these are available for free? Here is a guide to “what is available free” from the Intel Parallel Studio XE suites.
This document is designed to help users get started writing code and running MPI applications using the Intel® MPI Library on a development platform that includes the Intel® Xeon Phi™ processor.
