Abstract

We present a technique to estimate accurate speedups for parallel logic programs with relative independence from characteristics of a given implementation or underlying parallel hardware. The proposed technique is based on gathering accurate data describing one execution at run-time, which is fed to a simulator. Alternative schedulings are then simulated and estimates computed for the corresponding speedups. A tool implementing the aforementioned techniques is presented, and its predictions are compared to the performance of real systems, showing good correlation.
