Java COMPSs LU Factorization for Sparse Matrices, MareNostrum V, 3 nodes, no data persistence
COMPSs 3.3.1

Workflow Type: COMPSs

Name: SparseLU Contact Person: Access Level: public License Agreement: Apache2 Platform: COMPSs


The Sparse LU application computes an LU matrix factorization on a sparse blocked matrix. The matrix size (number of blocks) and the block size are parameters of the application.

As the algorithm progresses, the area of the matrix that is accessed is smaller; concretely, at each iteration, the 0th row and column of the current matrix are discarded. On the other hand, due to the sparseness of the matrix, some of its blocks might not be allocated and, therefore, no work is generated for them.

When executed with COMPSs, Sparse LU produces several types of task with different granularity and numerous dependencies between them.


There are three versions of Sparse LU, depending on the data types used to store the blocks.

Version 1

''files'', where the matrix blocks are stored in files.

Version 2

''objects'', where the matrix blocks are represented by objects.

Version 3

''arrays'', where the matrix blocks are stored in arrays.

Execution instructions


runcompss sparseLU.files.SparseLU numberOfBlocks blockSize
runcompss sparseLU.objects.SparseLU numberOfBlocks blockSize
runcompss sparseLU.arrays.SparseLU numberOfBlocks blockSize


  • numberOfBlocks: Number of blocks inside each matrix
  • blockSize: Size of each block

Execution Example

runcompss sparseLU.objects.SparseLU 16 4 
runcompss sparseLU.files.SparseLU 16 4
runcompss sparseLU.arrays.SparseLU 16 4 


Option 1: Native java

cd application_sources/; javac src/main/java/sparseLU/*/*.java
cd src/main/java/; jar cf sparseLU.jar sparseLU/
cd ../../../; mv src/main/java/sparseLU.jar jar/

Option 2: Maven

cd application_sources/
mvn clean package
