OpenMP fundamentials

< Лекция 6 || Лекция 7: 12 || Лекция 8 >
Аннотация: In this lecture describes OpenMP basics. OpenMP workflow and its limitation. Different variables and sections of the code, critical and concurrent sections, loop parallelization directives, loop iteration scheduling.

OpenMP is

  • An application programming interface (API) that supports shared-memory programming for C/C++ and Fortran
  • Pros:
    • Simple
    • Cross-platform
    • Small overhead
    • Data parallelism support


Compiler directives:


#pragma omp directive [clause, …]


!$OMP directive [clause, …]
C$OMP directive [clause, …]
*$OMP directive [clause, …]

Parallel execution

Parallel Regions

Main OpenMP directive

#pragma omp parallel
#pragma omp parallel
  printf( "hello world from thread %d of %d\n",
    omp_get_num_threads() );

Параллельное исполнение

  • Most of the OpenMP instructions are preprocessor directives
  • Main construction is "omp parallel [smth]"

Рис. 7.1.

OpenMP parallel model

  • Memory is shared
  • Task is divided into the threads
    • Variables can be
      • shared by the threads
      • private, available only for one thread
  • Uncareful or wrong variable usage can lead to wrong execution results.

Fork-join model

  • Program execution starts from the master thread
  • With OpenMP directive master thread creates the additional threads
  • After the parallel region is finished all threads are synchronized
  • Main thread continues to execute the sequential part

Рис. 7.2.

Основные конструкции OpenMP

  • #pragma omp for Each thread gets its own amount of data – data parallelism
  • #pragma omp section Each section will be executed in a separate thread – functional parallelism
  • #pragma omp single Sequential execution. Only one thread will execute this code

OpenMP sections

#pragma omp sections [ clause [ clause ] ... ] new-line
[#pragma omp section new-line ]
[#pragma omp section new-line
structured-block2 ]

Functional Parallelism

#pragma omp parallel
#pragma omp sections nowait 
#pragma omp section
#pragma omp section
#pragma omp section
