When viewing the Technical Program schedule, on the far righthand side
is a column labeled "PLANNER." Use this planner to build your own
schedule. Once you select an event and want to add it to your personal
schedule, just click on the calendar icon of your choice (outlook
calendar, ical calendar or google calendar) and that event will be
stored there. As you select events in this manner, you will have your
own schedule to guide you through the week.
You can also create your personal schedule on the SC11 app (Boopsie) on your smartphone. Simply select a session you want to attend and "add" it to your plan. Continue in this manner until you have created your own personal schedule. All your events will appear under "My Event Planner" on your smartphone.
MAximum Multicore POwer (MAMPO) - An Automatic Multithreaded Synthetic Power Virus Generation Framework for Multicore Systems
SESSION: Multicore Architectural Tools
EVENT TYPE: Paper, Best Student Paper (BSP) Finalist
TIME: 4:00PM - 4:30PM

ABSTRACT: It is tedious to manually write code snippets called power viruses to find the practically attainable worst-case power of a computer system and all the prior research to automate this are restricted to unicore systems. Previous research efforts towards automating the power virus generation process are all limited to the single core processors and are not effective when applied to multicore parallel systems as the components like the interconnection network, shared caches, DRAM and coherence directory also contribute significantly to the power consumption of a multicore parallel system. We propose MAMPO, a framework to automatically generate a multithreaded max-power stressmark for a multicore system. The generated synthetic power viruses consume 73-89%, 40-69%, 45-98% and 41-56% more power than running multiple copies of the industry-grade power virus MPrime, previously proposed single-core virus called SYMPO, SPECjbb and PARSEC workloads respectively on various multicore parallel machine configurations.
