A Task-Based Parallel Rendering Component For Large-Scale Visualization Applications (Unknown language)

in Eurographics Symposium on Parallel Graphics and Visualization ; 63-71
Eurographics Symposium on Parallel Graphics and Visualization

An increasingly heterogeneous system landscape in modern high performance computing requires the efficient and portable adaption of performant algorithms to diverse architectures. However, classic hybrid shared-memory/distributed systems are designed and tuned towards specific platforms, thus impeding development, usage and optimization of these approaches with respect to portability. We demonstrate a flexible parallel rendering framework built upon a task-based dynamic runtime environment enabling adaptable performance-oriented deployment on various platform configurations. Our task definition represents an effective and easy-to-control trade-off between sort-first and sort-last image compositing, enabling good scalability in combination with inherent dynamic load balancing. We conduct comprehensive benchmarks to verify the characteristics and potential of our novel task-based system design for high-performance visualization.
