Description

The matrix powers kernel, used in communication-avoiding Krylov subspace methods, requires runtime auto-tuning for best performance. We demonstrate how the SEJITS (Selective Embedded Just-In-Time Specialization) approach can be used to deliver a high-performance and performance-portable implementation of the matrix powers kernel to application authors, while separating their high-level concerns from those of auto-tuner implementers involving low-level optimizations. The benefits of delivering this kernel in the form of a specializer, rather than a traditional library, are discussed. Performance of the matrix powers kernel specializer is evaluated in the context of a communication-avoiding conjugate gradient (CA-CG) solver, which compares favorably to traditional CG.
