Abstract: We consider the Cholesky factorization on a parallel distributed architecture. We present several results on the effect of allocation schemes on the volume of communication, showing how to take advantage of the symmetry of the access pattern. We show that the standard 2D block-cyclic allocation is not adapted to this symmetric operation, and propose a Symmetric Block Cyclic allocation scheme which significantly improves both communication volume and performance. We dive deeper into this question with a more theoretical approach, and obtain an improved sequential out-of-core lower bound on the communication volume. We also design a matching Triangular Block algorithm, which shows that the lower bound is optimal. Finally, we propose an adaptation of this algorithm to the parallel distributed setting, and we obtain further improvement both on communication volume and on performance.
