XcalableMP, XMP for short, is a directive-based language extension which allows users to develop parallel programs for distributed memory systems easily and to tune the performance by having minimal and simple notations.
- Support typical parallelization under "global-view model"
- XMP enables parallelizing the original sequential code using minimal modification with simple directives.
- Support coarray to use one-sided communication easily under "local-view model"
- Programmer can use coarray syntax in both XMP/Fortran and XMP/C. In particular, XMP/Fortran is designed to be compatible with Coarray Fortran.
- Combination of MPI and OpenMP
- In order to call an MPI program from an XMP program, XMP provides the MPI programming interface. Moreover, OpenMP directives can be combined into XMP as a hybrid programming.
