OpenMP Offload Best Practices

In this chapter we present best practices for improving the performance of applications that offload onto the GPU. We organize the best practices into the following categories, which are described in the sections that follow:
Note: The following configuration was used when collecting OpenMP performance numbers:
  • Internal versions of the Intel compilers and GPU driver
  • GPU: ATS-P B0, 2-Tile
  • L0-plugin
  • Introduced a dummy
    construct at the beginning of a program, so as not to measure startup time.
  • Used Just-In-Time (JIT) compilation mode.
  • Used 1-Tile only (no implicit or explicit scaling).
