EdgePack

A new and simple method is proposed to choose the best data configuration in terms of processing phase time according to previous probing of edge-based matrix-vector products for codes using iterative solvers in unstructured grid problems. This method is realized as a suite of routines named EdgePack, acting during both pre-solution and solution phase, based on data locality optimization techniques and variations of matrix-vector product algorithm. Results have been demonstrating the great flexibility and simplicity of this method, which is suitable for distributed memory platforms in which different data configurations can coexist.
