Improving Simulations of Task-Based Applications on Complex NUMA Architectures


Modeling and simulation are crucial in high-performance computing (HPC), with numerous frameworks developed for distributed computing infrastructures and their applications. Despite node-level simulation of shared-memory systems and task-based parallel applications, existing works overlook non-uniform memory access (NUMA) effects, a critical characteristic of current HPC platforms. In this work, we introduce a modeling for complex NUMA architectures and enhance a simulator for dependency-based task-parallel applications. This facilitates experiments with varied data locality models: we refine a communication-oriented model leveraging topology information for data transfers, and devise a more intricate model incorporating a cache mechanism for last-level cache data storage. Dense linear algebra test cases are used to validate both models, demonstrating that our simulator reliably predicts execution time with minimal relative error.
