Nbody speedups


N-Body is a three-dimensional n-body model with constraints. It is used to solve problems arising in electromagnetic applications. The code is a research code from Rice University and was parallelised under an evaluation project with Dr. R.Luczak, ASC and Dr. D.O’Neal, NCSA.

Code information: 200 lines of source and 3 subroutines

Total Parallelization Time using ParaWise/CAPO : Approximately 5 minutes.

User Time: Approximately 2 minutes.

Results are for a 1000 points problem are shown to the left demonstrating that on 64 processors, the OpenMP code generated by ParaWise ran 44 times faster than the serial verison.
