Improving MPI Application Communication Time with an Introspection Monitoring Library

Abstract

In this paper we describe how to improve communication time of MPI parallel applications with the use of a library that enables to monitor MPI applications and allows for introspection (the program itself can query the state of the monitoring system). Based on previous work, this library is able to see how collective communications are decomposed into point-to-point messages. It also features monitoring sessions that allow suspending and restarting the monitoring, limiting it to specific portions of the code. Experiments show that the monitoring overhead is very small and that the proposed features allow for dynamic and efficient rank reordering enabling up to 2-time reduction of communication parts of some program.
