In recent years, language models (LMs), such as GPT-4, have been widely used in multiple domains, including natural language processing, visualization, and so on. However, applying them for analyzing and optimizing high-performance computing (HPC) software is still challenging due to the lack of HPC-specific support. In this paper, we design the LM4HPC framework to facilitate the research and development of HPC software analyses and optimizations using LMs. Tailored for supporting HPC datasets, AI models, and pipelines, our framework is built on top of a range of components from different levels of the machine learning software stack, with Hugging Face-compatible APIs. Using three representative tasks, we evaluated the prototype of our framework. The results show that LM4HPC can help users quickly evaluate a set of state-of-the-art models and generate insightful leaderboards.
Heterogeneity has become a mainstream architecture design choice for building High Performance Computing systems. However, heterogeneity poses significant challenges for achieving performance portability of execution. Adapting a program to a new heterogeneous platform is laborious and requires developers to manually explore a vast space of execution parameters. To address those challenges, this paper proposes new extensions to OpenMP for autonomous, machine learning-driven adaptation. Our solution includes a set of novel language constructs, compiler transformations, and runtime support. We propose a producer-consumer pattern to flexibly define multiple, different variants of OpenMP code regions to enable adaptation. Those regions are transparently profiled at runtime to autonomously learn optimizing machine learning models that dynamically select the fastest variant. Our approach significantly reduces users' efforts of programming adaptive applications on heterogeneous architectures by leveraging machine learning techniques and code generation capabilities of OpenMP compilation. Using a complete reference implementation in Clang/LLVM we evaluate three use-cases of adaptive CPU-GPU execution. Experiments with HPC proxy applications and benchmarks demonstrate that the proposed adaptive OpenMP extensions automatically choose the best performing code variants for various adaptation possibilities, in several different heterogeneous platforms of CPUs and GPUs.
