Description (last modified by igloo)
This report is from the post at Haskell-cafe "DPH matrix product", I'm reporting it here so developers can define if it's a bug or not and its priority.
On a (I think) standar implementation of matrix product on DPH I notice an excessive use of system memory. At execution time, on matrices of size 300*300 the program does finish (although it is very slow), but on 600*600 it consumes GBs of RAM until the process is aborted.
This is the system information:
- Ubuntu 12.04 32-bit
- Intel® Core™2 Duo CPU T5270 @ 1.40GHz × 2
- 2.9 GiB RAM
GHC version:
- GHC 7.4.1
DPH libraries:
- dph-base-0.6.1.1
- (dph-lifted-base-0.6.1.1)
- (dph-lifted-vseg-0.6.1.2)
- (dph-prim-interface-0.6.1.1)
- (dph-prim-par-0.6.1.1)
- (dph-prim-seq-0.6.1.1)
Compilation flags:
I'm using two combinations of flags, taken from different sources. In both cases results are identical:
- From https://github.com/ghc/packages-dph: -rtsopts -threaded -fllvm -optlo-O3 -Odph -fcpr-off -fno-liberate-case -package dph-lifted-vseg
- From dph-examples: -rtsopts -threaded -fllvm -Odph -package dph-lifted-vseg -fcpr-off -fno-liberate-case -fsimpl-tick-factor=1000
Execution flags:
+RTS -N
Tests:
- Computing the product of two 400*400 matrices takes 6.037993 seconds.
- Computing the product of two 600*600 matrices yields "out of memory (requested 1728053248 bytes)".
DPH code:
{-# LANGUAGE ParallelArrays, ParallelListComp #-} {-# OPTIONS -fvectorise #-} module DPH_mmult_wrapper (matMult_wrapper, Matrix_wrapper) where import qualified Prelude import Data.Array.Parallel import Data.Array.Parallel.Prelude.Double as D import Data.Array.Parallel.Prelude.Int as I type MMultType = Double type Matrix = [:[:MMultType:]:] type MVector = [:MMultType:] type Matrix_wrapper = PArray (PArray MMultType) -- matMult_wrapper assumes mB is already transposed {-# NOINLINE matMult_wrapper #-} matMult_wrapper :: Matrix_wrapper -> Matrix_wrapper -> Matrix_wrapper matMult_wrapper mA mB = toPArrayP (mapP toPArrayP (matMult (fromNestedPArrayP mA) (fromNestedPArrayP mB))) matMult :: Matrix -> Matrix -> Matrix matMult mA mB = mapP (\row -> mapP (\col -> dotp row col) mB) mA dotp :: MVector -> MVector -> MMultType dotp row col = D.sumP (zipWithP (D.*) row col)
I'm reporting this as I think it is the kind of problems intended to be solved in the last definition of the internal DPH structure (the one from "Work Efficient Higher-Order Vectorisation" paper).
If there is any information missing, please comment and I will update the report.
Thanks.

The paper claims *work* efficient vectorisation, not *space* efficient vectorisation. Making it space efficient is an open research question.

More specifially, in section 5.5 the paper states:
nested parallelism can increase the asymptotic space complexity in a way that this paper does not address [15, 19]. ... The flattened version is a hylomorphism that first computes O(n^2) distances before reducing them to determine the maximum. Whereas the sequential version would run in O(n) space, the flattened version needs O(n^2) space to hold the intermediate vector of distances.
Given the preceding this issue seems to be a known consequence of the dph algorithm and as such the status of this should be "Not a bug" as it is not a GHC bug. However this is just my opinion and I don't feel I have the expertise to actually change the bug status

- Resolution set to invalid
- Status changed from new to closed
I've set it to invalid to clean up the ticket data base.
This is a research problem, not a bug in the compiler.
Ben, could you take a look please?
