Abstract:The race for higher performance in computer processors came to a halt when increasing clock speeds was no longer possible due to the increasing importance of at least two factors: the increasing gap between CPU and memory speeds (memory wall) and the trend of exponentially increasing power with each factorial increase of frequency (power wall). Instead, the industry created multi-core processors to increase processing power. The use of multi-core processors is less than trivial as their efficient usage requires new languages for easy parallel programming. In this thesis we will evaluate the Omphale Input Language (OIL) and its tool kit by means of a case study. OIL is a language to describe a Nested Loop Program (NLP) and is meant to assist with writing parallel programs by providing a 'coordination language'. A coordination language is the 'glue' to combine blocks of side-effect free code (called tasks) written in another language.
