New Webinar on 2/22: Roadside Assistance with an Industry Standard IPC

Join Sven Brehmer (chair of MCAPI™ working group) and myself for a webinar on February 22, 2012 at 9am PST. “Flat Program? Overheated Multicore Application? Roadside Assistance with an Industry Standard IPC”. We’ll discuss the roadside service options for approaching these challenges and getting your multicore program in turbo-charge mode. Register Here.

Coming Soon: Multicore Developers Conference

Get plugged into the Multicore Developers Conference and exhibition, co-located with DesignWest and ESC. March 27-28, 2012 at the San Jose Convention Center. Check out the knowledge-packed agenda.

Task Management Working Group (MTAPI™) Update

The MTAPI™ working group, charged with creating an industry-standard specification for an API that supports the task coordination on embedded parallel systems, continues to make significant progress. Join Urs Gleim (chairman of MTAPI™ working group) and myself for our presentation at the Embedded World conference in Nuremberg, Germany. Let me know if you’re interested in receiving more information about MTAPI™. It’s definitely not too late for you to join in this effort and make your contributions.

Tools Infrastructure Working Group (TIWG™) Update

The TIWG™ working Group has been continuing on the Common Trace Format specification. The draft proposal is already in use in the latest versions of the Linux Trace Toolkit (LTTng), as well as the LTTng User Space Tracing (http://lttng.org/lttng2.0). We have continued working on extensions of the format for correlation of traces taken from various multicore tracing technologies. Recent work has focused on the definition of services and protocols for of trace data collection. The vision is to be able to connect to an arbitrary multicore system with a trace analyzer, query for available cores, trace collectors, trace points and such, and then configure them for an analysis. Draft requirements are taking shape now, with a standard proposal expected by Q3 2012.

Multicore Virtualization Working Group MVWG™ Update

The MVWG™ Working Group will be having an open meeting in San Jose during the week of March 12. Contact me if you’re interested in attending. To get a feel for the focus of this meeting, you can review the archived webinar Sorting out the Confusion of Multicore Processor Virtualization Features.
