Understanding the Python GIL

The document discusses the Global Interpreter Lock (GIL) in Python and how it can limit thread performance. An experiment shows that dividing a CPU-bound task across two threads results in slower performance than running it sequentially. The talk will examine threads and the GIL in depth, including how thread switching works and what can go wrong, in an effort to explain this mystery. Visualizations of GIL logging data reveal interesting thread scheduling behaviors on single and multicore systems.

Binary Tree in Data Structure

Binary trees are a data structure where each node has at most two children. A binary tree node contains data and pointers to its left and right child nodes. Binary search trees are a type of binary tree where nodes are organized in a manner that allows for efficient searches, insertions, and deletions of nodes. The key operations on binary search trees are searching for a node, inserting a new node, and deleting an existing node through various algorithms that traverse the tree. Common traversals of binary trees include preorder, inorder, and postorder traversals.

Insertion sort

The document discusses insertion sort, a simple sorting algorithm that builds a sorted output list from an input one element at a time. It is less efficient on large lists than more advanced algorithms. Insertion sort iterates through the input, at each step removing an element and inserting it into the correct position in the sorted output list. The best case for insertion sort is an already sorted array, while the worst is a reverse sorted array.

Priority queues

Describes basic understanding of priority queues, their applications, methods, implementation with sorted/unsorted list, sorting applications with insertion sort and selection sort with their running times.

Trees

Trees are hierarchical data structures composed of nodes connected by edges. A tree has a root node with child nodes below it. Leaf nodes have no children, while internal nodes have children. Binary trees restrict nodes to having 0, 1, or 2 children. Binary search trees organize nodes so that all left descendants of a node are less than or equal to the node and all right descendants are greater than or equal. Common tree operations include insertion, searching, and deletion.

Computer architecture, a quantitative approach (solution for 5th edition)

The document provides solutions to exercises related to computer architecture and systems. It includes solutions to 10 case studies and 18 exercises. The case studies cover topics like chip fabrication costs, power consumption in computer systems, optimizing cache performance, and highly parallel memory systems. The exercises reinforce concepts in areas such as performance modeling, vectorization, and memory hierarchy design.

Queue

A queue is a first-in, first-out (FIFO) collection where elements are inserted at the rear and deleted from the front. A circular queue solves the problem of overflow by making the queue circular, so the rear wraps around to the front when full. Operations on a circular queue include insertion, which adds elements to the rear until the queue is full and the rear wraps to the front, and deletion, which removes elements from the front. A priority queue processes elements according to priority, with higher priority elements removed before lower priority ones.

BINARY SEARCH TREE

A binary tree is composed of nodes where each node contains a value and pointers to its left and right children. A binary tree traversal involves systematically visiting each node by traversing either breadth-first or depth-first. Breadth-first traversal visits nodes by level while depth-first traversal can be pre-order, in-order, or post-order depending on when the node is visited. Threaded binary trees reduce the number of null pointers by using them to point to other nodes for more efficient traversals.

The Functional Programming Toolkit (NDC Oslo 2019)

(slides and video at https://fsharpforfunandprofit.com/fptoolkit)
The techniques and patterns used in functional programming are very different from object-oriented programming, and when you are just starting out it can be hard to know how they all fit together.
In this big picture talk for FP beginners, I'll present some of the common tools that can be found in a functional programmer's toolbelt; tools such as "map", "apply", "bind", and "sequence". What are they? Why are they important? How are they used in practice? And how do they relate to scary sounding concepts like functors, monads, and applicatives?

Chapter 8 ds

The document discusses different types of binary trees and tree traversal methods. It defines binary trees and outlines their key properties. It also describes different types of binary trees such as strictly binary trees, complete binary trees, and almost complete binary trees. Finally, it discusses two methods for traversing trees - depth-first traversal and breadth-first traversal, and covers preorder, inorder and postorder traversal techniques for binary trees.

Searching techniques

Sequential and interval searching algorithms are used to search for elements in data structures. Sequential searches, like linear search, sequentially check each element until finding a match. Interval searches, like binary search, target the center of the search structure and divide the search space in half with each iteration. Other searching techniques include sentinel search, which adds a sentinel value to reduce comparisons, and Fibonacci search, which divides the search space into unequal parts based on Fibonacci numbers.

Linked lists

This presentations gives an introduction to the data structure linked-lists. I discuss the implementation of header-based linked-lists in C. The presentation runs through the code and provides the visualization of the code w.r.t pointers.

Sparse matrix and its representation data structure

The document discusses sparse matrices and their efficient representation. It defines a sparse matrix as one with very few non-zero elements, so representing it as a standard 2D array wastes space storing many zero values. More efficient representations of sparse matrices include storing only the non-zero elements and their indices in a triplet format, or using a linked list structure with one list per row containing (column, value) node pairs. Examples of each approach are provided.

Types of Tree in Data Structure in C++

The document defines a tree as a set of nodes with a root node and zero or more subtrees. It discusses terminology like degree, parent, child, and sibling nodes. Trees can be represented sequentially or linked. Binary trees restrict nodes to having at most two children. Binary search trees require that all left descendants of a node are less than the node and all right descendants are greater. The document describes traversing binary trees using inorder, preorder, and postorder traversal.

Queue

Queue is a linear data structure where elements are inserted at one end called the rear and deleted from the other end called the front. It follows the FIFO (first in, first out) principle. Queues can be implemented using arrays or linked lists. In an array implementation, elements are inserted at the rear and deleted from the front. In a linked list implementation, nodes are added to the rear and removed from the front using front and rear pointers. There are different types of queues including circular queues, double-ended queues, and priority queues.

Stacks IN DATA STRUCTURES

1) Stacks are linear data structures that follow the LIFO (last-in, first-out) principle. Elements can only be inserted or removed from one end called the top of the stack.
2) The basic stack operations are push, which adds an element to the top of the stack, and pop, which removes an element from the top.
3) Stacks have many applications including evaluating arithmetic expressions by converting them to postfix notation and implementing the backtracking technique in recursive backtracking problems like tower of Hanoi.

(Binary tree)

The document discusses binary trees and various operations on them. It defines what a binary tree is composed of (nodes with values and pointers to left and right children). It describes tree traversals like preorder, inorder and postorder that output the nodes in different orders. It explains two common search strategies - depth-first search (DFS) and breadth-first search (BFS) - and provides examples of how they traverse a sample tree. It also briefly discusses operations like finding the minimum/maximum element, inserting a new element, and deleting an existing element from the binary search tree.

Heaps

A heap data structure is a binary tree that satisfies two properties: it is a complete binary tree where each level is filled from left to right, and the value stored at each node is greater than or equal to the values of its children (the heap property). Heaps can be implemented using arrays where the root is at index 0, left child at 2i+1, and right child at 2i+2. The basic heap operations like building a heap from an array and heapifying subtrees run in O(log n) time, allowing priority queues and other applications to be efficiently implemented using heaps.

1. An AVL tree is a self-balancing binary search tree where the height of the left and right subtrees of every node differ by at most 1.
2. AVL trees perform rotations during insertions and deletions to maintain the balance property. There are four cases of rotations that can occur - left subtree heavy, right subtree heavy, left subtree becomes right heavy, right subtree becomes left heavy.
3. The balance factor of a node is defined as the height of its left subtree minus the height of its right subtree, and must be between -1 and 1 for the tree to remain balanced.

Priority Queue in Data Structure

This document discusses priority queues. It defines a priority queue as a queue where insertion and deletion are based on some priority property. Items with higher priority are removed before lower priority items. There are two main types: ascending priority queues remove the smallest item, while descending priority queues remove the largest item. Priority queues are useful for scheduling jobs in operating systems, where real-time jobs have highest priority and are scheduled first. They are also used in network communication to manage limited bandwidth.

Binary tree

This document discusses binary trees. It defines a binary tree as a structure containing nodes with two self-referenced fields - a left reference and a right reference. Each node can have at most two child nodes. It provides examples of common binary tree terminology like root, internal nodes, leaves, siblings, depth, and height. It also describes different ways to represent binary trees using arrays or links and their tradeoffs. Complete binary trees are discussed as an optimal structure with height proportional to log of number of nodes.

Arithmatic pipline

1) Arithmetic pipelines divide arithmetic operations like multiplication and floating point addition into multiple stages to perform the operations concurrently and increase computational speed.
2) Vector and array processors use multiple processing elements that can perform the same operation on multiple data items simultaneously, further increasing speed.
3) Pipelining helps throughput by allowing new tasks to begin before previous ones finish, but does not reduce the latency of individual tasks. The pipeline rate is limited by its slowest stage.

pipelining-190913185902.pptx

This document discusses pipelining in computer processors. It defines pipelining as accumulating instructions through a pipeline to allow storing and executing instructions in parallel. There are two main types of pipelines: arithmetic pipelines which handle floating point operations, and instruction pipelines which overlap the fetch, decode, and execute phases of instructions. Pipelining provides benefits like reduced cycle time and increased throughput, but also has disadvantages like increased complexity, costs, and instruction latency. Common issues that can interfere with pipelining are timing variations, data hazards, branching, interrupts, and data dependency.

Pipelining powerpoint presentation

Pipelining is a technique where multiple instructions are overlapped during execution by dividing the instruction cycle into stages connected in a pipeline structure. There are two main types of pipelines - instruction pipelines which overlap the fetch, decode, and execute phases of instructions to improve throughput, and arithmetic pipelines used for floating point and fixed point operations. Pipeline conflicts can occur due to timing variations, data hazards, branching, interrupts, or data dependency which reduce the pipeline's performance. The main advantages of pipelining are reduced cycle time, increased throughput, and improved reliability, while the main disadvantage is increased complexity, cost, and instruction latency.

BIL406-Chapter-7-Superscalar and Superpipeline processors.ppt

This document discusses superscalar and superpipeline processors. It covers topics like pipelining techniques, linear and nonlinear pipelines, instruction pipelines, arithmetic pipelines, superscalar design, superpipeline design, and superscalar and superpipeline tradeoffs. The key points are that superscalar design allows simultaneous execution of multiple instructions while superpipeline design uses deeper pipelines to overlap execution across multiple stages, both aim to improve processor throughput through parallelism.

arithmaticpipline-170310085040.pptx

1) Pipeline processing increases computational speed by dividing tasks into sequential steps and allowing multiple tasks to progress through the steps simultaneously.
2) Arithmetic pipelines are used for fixed-point and floating-point operations by dividing the operations, like multiplication, into stages like generating partial products or adding carry bits.
3) Vector and array processors further improve parallelism by performing the same operations on multiple data elements simultaneously using multiple processing units.

Unit - 5 Pipelining.pptx

Here are the answers to the questions:
1. Pipeline cycle time = Maximum delay of any stage + Latch delay
= 90 ns + 10 ns = 100 ns
2. Non-pipeline execution time for one task = Total delay of all stages
= 60 + 50 + 90 + 80 = 280 ns
3. Speed up ratio = Non-pipeline time/Pipeline time
= 280/100 = 2.8
4. Pipeline time for 1000 tasks = Pipeline cycle time x Number of tasks
= 100 ns x 1000 = 100,000 ns = 100 μs
5. Sequential time for 1000 tasks = Non-pipeline time per task x Number of tasks
= 280 ns x 1000 = 280,

SOC Chip Basics

This document discusses key trade-offs in chip design including time, area, power, reliability, and configurability. It covers topics like cycle time, die area and cost, ideal and practical scaling, power consumption, and how these factors relate to processor design trade-offs between area, time and power. Key considerations in design include optimizing the pipeline for cycle time, minimizing die area and maximizing yield, accounting for the increasing dominance of wire delays over gate delays with scaling, and balancing dynamic and static power sources.

3 Pipelining

The document discusses pipelining in computer processors. It describes how pipelining can increase throughput by overlapping the execution of multiple instructions. It discusses the basic pipeline stages for a RISC instruction set, including fetch, decode, execute, memory access, and writeback. It also describes several types of pipeline hazards that can occur, such as structural hazards caused by resource conflicts, data hazards when instructions depend on previous results, and control hazards with branches. Forwarding techniques are presented to help address data hazards.

MA1.ppt

Flowlines are the prevailing layout for high-volume manufacturing. There are several types of flowlines including synchronous transfer lines with integrated conveyors, and asynchronous flowlines using either push or pull control. Asynchronous transfer lines use discrete buffers between stations while KANBAN and CONWIP lines use pull control with target work-in-process levels to prevent congestion. Effective flowline design requires analyzing factors like throughput, cycle time, utilization, and the impact of operational variations and batching policies.

Pipelining slides

The document discusses the basics of RISC instruction set architectures and pipelining in CPUs. It begins by describing properties of RISC ISAs, including that operations apply to full registers, only load/store instructions affect memory, and instructions are typically one size. It then describes different types of RISC instructions like ALU, load/store, and branches. The document goes on to explain the implementation of a RISC pipeline in 5 stages and the concept of pipelining to improve CPU performance by overlapping instruction execution. It also discusses potential hazards that can degrade pipeline performance like structural, data, and control hazards.

Coa.ppt2

The document discusses RISC instruction set basics and pipelining concepts. It begins by describing properties of RISC architectures, including that operations apply to full registers and only load/store instructions affect memory. It then describes different types of RISC instructions like ALU, load/store, and branches. The document goes on to explain the implementation of instructions in a MIPS64 pipeline with 5 stages: instruction fetch, decode/register fetch, execute, memory access, and write-back. It concludes by defining pipelining and describing how it can increase throughput by overlapping instruction execution.

Aiar. unit ii. transfer lines

This document discusses automated production lines, also called transfer lines or transfer machines. It provides three key points:
1. Automated production lines consist of multiple linked workstations that perform processing operations like machining on parts. Parts are transferred between stations by a mechanized material handling system.
2. Transfer lines are appropriate for high production demand of parts requiring multiple operations, with stable designs and long product lives. They provide benefits like low labor costs and high production rates.
3. Storage buffers between workstations can reduce the impact of breakdowns and allow production to continue. The effectiveness of buffers depends on their capacity, providing some protection even with small buffers but maximum benefits with unlimited capacity buffers.

Low power

The document discusses various techniques for reducing power consumption at different levels, from circuit-level optimizations like transistor sizing and voltage scaling, to logic synthesis techniques like clock gating and state encoding, to algorithm-level optimizations and architecturally-static pipelining supported by an optimizing compiler. It notes that power optimization is important for cost, dependability, and extending battery life, and that while proposed approaches show potential, accurate energy assessments of new techniques are still needed.

It begins by explaining the objectives of timing analysis and the differences between static and dynamic timing analysis. Static timing analysis is described as examining all possible signal paths to calculate worst-case arrival times and check for timing violations, while dynamic analysis uses test vectors but is slower. The document then covers gate and net delay models used in STA, limitations of simple fixed delay models, and lumped and distributed RC net delay models.

Single_Electron_Transistor_Aneesh_Raveendran

The document discusses single electron transistors (SETs). SETs use controlled electron tunneling through nanoscale islands to precisely control electric current. This allows SETs to function as extremely sensitive switches and amplifiers at the scale of single electrons. The document outlines how SETs work, describing their tunnel junction structure and coulomb blockade effect. It also discusses their potential applications in quantum computing and sensing and challenges to overcome before they can be implemented in complex circuits.

Universal Asynchronous Receive and transmit IP core

This document describes a Universal Asynchronous Receive and Transmit (UART) IP core. It discusses the RS-232 serial communication protocol that the UART uses. It then provides details on the design specification of the UART IP core, including its 9-pin connector, data formats, and configurable baud rates. The document also describes the internal design of the UART transmitter and receiver blocks, including how they convert parallel data to serial and vice versa.

Branch prediction

Branch prediction is necessary to reduce penalties from branches in modern deep pipelines. It predicts the direction (taken or not taken) and target of branches. Common techniques include bimodal prediction using saturating counters and two-level prediction using branch history tables and pattern history tables. Real processors use hybrid predictors combining different techniques. Mispredictions require flushing the pipeline and incur a performance penalty.

Reversible Logic Gate

Reversible logic gates can be used to reduce heat generation in computing. Traditional irreversible logic gates necessarily generate heat from information loss, but reversible gates avoid this by not resulting in information loss. The document describes several types of reversible gates: the NOT gate, Feynman gate, Toffoli gate, and Fredkin gate. It provides details on the functionality of each gate through logic equations and VHDL code examples.

Unalligned versus natureally alligned memory access

This document discusses aligned versus unaligned memory access. It notes that unaligned access occurs when accessing N bytes of data from an address not evenly divisible by N. While some architectures can handle unaligned access, it reduces performance or causes exceptions. The compiler ensures structures and variables are aligned, but unaligned access can occur from casts or pointer arithmetic. The get_unaligned() and put_unaligned() macros or memcpy() can be used to avoid unaligned access issues.

Architecture and Implementation of the ARM Cortex-A8 Microprocessor

The document discusses the architecture and implementation of the ARM Cortex-A8 microprocessor.

Observability Concepts EVERY Developer Should Know -- DeveloperWeek Europe.pdf

Monitoring and observability aren’t traditionally found in software curriculums and many of us cobble this knowledge together from whatever vendor or ecosystem we were first introduced to and whatever is a part of your current company’s observability stack.
While the dev and ops silo continues to crumble….many organizations still relegate monitoring & observability as the purview of ops, infra and SRE teams. This is a mistake - achieving a highly observable system requires collaboration up and down the stack.
I, a former op, would like to extend an invitation to all application developers to join the observability party will share these foundational concepts to build on:

- 1. PIPELINING IDEALISM ANEESH R Center For Development of Advanced Computing (C-DAC) INDIA aneeshr2020@gmail.com ANEESH R
- 2. Pipelining idealism • Motivation of a k-stage pipelined design is to achieve a k-folded increase in throughput. • The K-fold increase in throughput represents the ideal case. • Unavoidable deviations form the idealism in real pipeline make pipelined design more challenging . • Solution for idealism – realism gap in pipelining is more challenging. • Three points in pipelining idealism are :- • Uniform sub-computations : Computation to be performed is evenly partitioned into uniform latency computations. • Identical sub-computations : Same computation is to be performed repeatedly on a large number of input data sets • Independent sub-computations : All the repetitions of the same computations are mutually independent ANEESH R aneeshr2020@gmail.com
- 3. Uniform sub-computations • The computation to be pipelined can be evenly partitioned into K-uniform latency subcomputations. • Original design can be evenly partitioned into K-balanced(i.e. having same latency) pipeline stages. • If the latency of the original computation and hence the clocking period of the non-pipelined design is “T”, then clocking period of a k-stage pipelined design is exactly “T/K”. • The k-folded increase in throughput is achieved due to the k-fold increase of the clocking rate. • • • This idealized concept may not be true in an actual pipeline design. It may not be possible to partition the computation into perfectly balanced stages. The latency of 400 ns of the non-pipelined computation is partitioned into three stages with latencies of 125, 150, and 125 ns, respectively. • The original latency has not been evenly partitioned into three balanced stages. ANEESH R aneeshr2020@gmail.com
- 4. Uniform sub-computations (cont…) • The clocking period of a pipelined design is dictated by the stage with the longest latency. • The stages with shorter latencies in effect will incur some inefficiency or penalty. • The first and third stages have an inefficiency of 25 ns each. • These are the internal fragmentation of pipeline stages. • The total latency required for performing the same computation will increase from T to Tf • The clocking period of the pipelined design will be no longer T/k but Tf/k • The performance of the three sub-computations will require 450 ns instead of the original 400 ns • The clocking period will be not 133 ns (400/3 ns) but 150 ns ANEESH R aneeshr2020@gmail.com
- 5. Uniform sub-computations (cont…) • In actual designs, an additional delay is introduced by the introduction of buffers between pipeline stages and an additional delay is also required for ensuring proper clocking of the pipeline stages. • An additional 22 ns is required to ensure proper clocking of the pipeline stages. • This results in the cycle time of 172 ns for the three-stage pipelined design. • The ideal cycle time for a three-stage pipelined design would have been 133 ns. • The difference between 172 and 133 ns for the clocking period accounts for the shortfall from the idealized three-fold increase of throughput. ANEESH R aneeshr2020@gmail.com
- 6. Uniform sub-computations (cont…) • Uniform sub-computations basically assumes two things: • There is no inefficiency introduced due to the partitioning of the original computation into multiple sub-computations • There is no additional delay caused by the introduction of the inter-stage buffers and the clocking requirements • The additional delay incurred for proper pipeline clocking can be minimized by employing latches similar to the Earle latch • The partitioning of a computation into balanced pipeline stages constitutes the first challenge of pipelined design • • The goal is to achieve stages as balanced as possible to minimize internal fragmentation Internal fragmentation is the primary cause of deviation from the first point of pipelining idealism • This deviation leads to the shortfall from the idealized k-fold increase of throughput in a kstage pipelined design ANEESH R aneeshr2020@gmail.com
- 7. Identical sub-computations • Many repetitions of the same computation are to be performed by the pipeline. • The same computation is repeated on multiple sets of input data. • Each repetition requires the same sequence of sub-computations provided by the pipeline stages. • This is certainly true for the Pipelined Floating-Point Multiplier. • Because this pipeline performs only one function, that is, floating-point multiplication. • Many pairs of floating-point numbers are to be multiplied. • Each pair of operands is sent through the same three pipeline stages. • All the pipeline stages are used by every repetition of the computation. ANEESH R aneeshr2020@gmail.com
- 8. Identical sub-computations(cont…) • If a pipeline is designed to perform multiple functions, this assumption may not hold. • An arithmetic pipeline can be designed to perform both addition and multiplication • Not all the pipeline stages may be required by each of the functions supported by the pipeline • A different subset of pipeline stages is required for performing each of the functions • Each computation may not require all the pipeline stages • Some data sets will not require some pipeline stages and effectively will be idling during those stages • These unused or idling pipeline stages introduce another form of pipeline inefficiency • Called external fragmentation of pipeline stages • External fragmentation is a form of pipelining overhead and should be minimized in multifunction pipelines ANEESH R aneeshr2020@gmail.com
- 9. Identical sub-computations(cont…) • Identical computations effectively assume that all pipeline stages are always utilized. • It also implies that there are many sets of data to be processed. • It takes k cycles for the first data set to reach the last stage of the pipeline. • These cycles are referred to as the pipeline fill time. • After the last data set has entered the first pipeline stage, an additional k cycles are needed to drain the pipeline. • During pipeline fill and drain times, not all the stages will be busy. • Assuming the processing of many sets of input data is that the pipeline fill and drain times constitute a very small fraction of the total time. • The pipeline stages can be considered, for all practical purposes, to be always busy. ANEESH R aneeshr2020@gmail.com
- 10. Independent sub-computations • The repetitions of computation, or simply computations, to be processed by the pipeline are independent • All the computations that are concurrently resident in the pipeline stages are independent • They have no data or control dependences between any pair of the computations • This permits the pipeline to operate in "streaming" mode • A later computation needs not wait for the completion of an earlier computation due to a dependence between them • For our pipelined floating-point multiplier this assumption holds • If there are multiple pairs of operands to be multiplied, the multiplication of a pair of operands does not depend on the result from another multiplication • These pairs can be processed by the pipeline in streaming mode ANEESH R aneeshr2020@gmail.com
- 11. Independent sub-computations (Cont…) • For some pipelines this point may not hold :• A later computation may require the result of an earlier computation • Both of these computations can be concurrently resident in the pipeline stages • If the later computation has entered the pipeline stage that needs the result while the earlier computation has not reached the pipeline stage that produces the needed result, the later computation must wait in that pipeline stage • Referred to as a pipeline stall • If a computation is stalled in a pipeline stage, all subsequent computations may have to be stalled • Pipeline stalls effectively introduce idling pipeline stages • This is essentially a dynamic form of external fragmentation and results in the reduction of pipeline throughput • In designing pipelines that need to process computations that are not necessarily independent, the goal is to produce a pipeline design that minimizes the amount of pipeline stalls ANEESH R aneeshr2020@gmail.com
- 13. • This topic is adopted form “Micro-processor design” by authors “SHEN” and “LIPSATI” ANEESH R aneeshr2020@gmail.com
