In recent years, increasing attention has been given to the possibility of guaranteeing Service Level Objectives (SLOs) to users about their applications, either regarding performance or power consumption. SLO can be implemented for parallel applications since they can provide many control knobs (e.g., the number of threads to use, the clock frequency of the cores, etc.) to tune the performance and power consumption of the application. Different from most of the existing approaches, we target sequential stream processing applications by proposing a solution based on C++ annotations. The user specifies which parts of the code to parallelize and what type of requirements should be enforced on that part of the code. Our solution first automatically parallelizes the annotated code and then applies self-adaptation approaches at run-time to enforce the user-expressed objectives. We ran experiments on different real-world applications, showing its simplicity and effectiveness.

Abstract

In recent years, increasing attention has been given to the possibility of guaranteeing Service Level Objectives (SLOs) to users about their applications, either regarding performance or power consumption. SLO can be implemented for parallel applications since they can provide many control knobs (e.g., the number of threads to use, the clock frequency of the cores, etc.) to tune the performance and power consumption of the application. Different from most of the existing approaches, we target sequential stream processing applications by proposing a solution based on C++ annotations. The user specifies which parts of the code to parallelize and what type of requirements should be enforced on that part of the code. Our solution first automatically parallelizes the annotated code and then applies self-adaptation approaches at run-time to enforce the user-expressed objectives. We ran experiments on different real-world applications, showing its simplicity and effectiveness.
