POOCLAPACK: Parallel Out-of-Core Linear Algebra Package In this paper parallel implementation of out-of-core Cholesky factorization is used to introduce the Parallel Outof-Core Linear Algebra Package (POOCLAPACK), a flexible infrastructure for parallel implementation of out-of-core linear algebra operations. POOCLAPACK builds on the Parallel Linear Algebra Package (PLAPACK) for in-core parallel dense linear algebra computation. Despite the extreme simplicity of POOCLAPACK, the out-of-core Cholesky factorization implementation is shown to achieve in excess of 80% of peak performance on a 64 node configuration of the Cray T3E-600. Preliminary results from the HP Exemplar X-Class that demonstrate the portability of POOCLAPACK are also given.
