Cross-segment load balancing in parallel rendering


Erol, Fatih; Eilemann, Stefan; Pajarola, Renato (2011). Cross-segment load balancing in parallel rendering. In: Eurographics Symposium on Parallel Graphics and Visualization, Llandudno, UK, 10 April 2011 - 11 April 2011, 41-50.

Abstract

With faster graphics hardware comes the possibility to realize even more complicated applications that require more detailed data and provide better presentation. The processors keep being challenged with bigger amount of data and higher resolution outputs, requiring more research in the parallel/distributed rendering domain. Optimizing resource usage to improve throughput is one important topic, which we address in this article for multi-display applications, using the Equalizer parallel rendering framework. This paper introduces and analyzes cross-segment load balancing which efficiently assigns all available shared graphics resources to all display output segments with dynamical task partitioning to improve performance in parallel rendering.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
