parallel programming in openPDC

Jan 15, 2013 at 6:24 PM

Hello,

I am wondering whether openPDC is programmed to support multi-core computing. If we have a 8-core server, would openPDC automatically benefit from that? I understand that if a program is not using parallel programming, it will only use one core even if it is running on a multi-core server. I would like to make sure what openPDC stands in this case.

Thank you very much for your reply in advance!

Yes - most every operation in the openPDC is ran asynchronously from the distributed thread pool - the more cores you have the better the system will perform.

Ritchie,

Thanks a lot for your reply!
