Title: Evaluating the potential of multithreaded platforms for irregular scientific computations

Abstract

We have conducted a detailed study to understand the potential of multithreaded architectures to increase the performance of data-intensive, irregular scientific applications. In addition to microbenchmarks, our study included a power system state estimation application and an anomaly detection application applied to network traffic data. The evaluation was performed on the Cray MTA-2 and the Sun Niagara.
