INSTRUCTIONS
This comprised of 10 equally weighted questions from Chapters 1 and 2. Answer all 10 questions. Each question is worth 10 points.

 

 

Exercise 1.9

a) Assumptions (servers turned off = 45%)

b) Assumptions (servers in “barely alive” state = 45%)

c) Assumptions (voltage reduction = 33%; frequency reduction 62%)

 

 

Exercise 1.11

a) Assumptions (company computers = 8,500; MTTF for each computer = 26 days; catastrophic failure = ½ of computers failing)

b) Assumptions (extra cost of doubling MTTF per computer = $520)

 

 

Exercise 1.14

a) Assumptions (increased speedup of FPOs = 3x; FPOs = 31% of original program execution time)

b) Assumptions (speeding up the FPU resulted in 1.7x slowdown; data cache access = consumes 16% of execution time)

c) Unchanged

 

 

Exercise 1.15

a) Unchanged

b) Unchanged

c) Unchanged

d) Unchanged

e) Unchanged

 

 

Exercise 1.16

a) Assumptions (percentage of application that is parallelizable = 55%; communication cost = 0)

b) Assumptions (# of processors = 12; communication overhead per each processor added = 0.72%)

c) Assumptions (# of processors = 12; 0.72% increase in communication overhead when number of processors is doubled)

d) Assumptions (communication overhead is increased by 0.72% of the original execution time whenever the # of processors is doubled)

e) Unchanged
