Efficient Process Replication for MPI Applications: Sharing Work Between Replicas

Abstract

With the increased failure rate expected in future extreme scale supercomputers, process replication might become a viable alternative to checkpointing. By default, the workload efficiency of replication is limited to 50% because of the additional resources that have to be used to execute the replicas of the application's processes. In this paper, we introduce intra-parallelization, a solution that avoids replicating all computation by introducing work-sharing between replicas. We show on a representative set of benchmarks that intra-parallelization allows achieving more than 50% efficiency without compromising fault tolerance.
