Abstract

We consider the execution of complex, multi-join queries in a hierarchical parallel system, i.e., a shared-nothing system whose nodes are shared-memory multiprocessors. In a hierarchical system, load balancing must be addressed at two levels, locally among the processors of each shared-memory node and globally among all nodes. In this paper, we propose a new execution model that dynamically maximizes local load balancing within shared-memory nodes and reduces as much as possible the need for load sharing across nodes. This is obtained by allowing each processor to execute any operator that can be processed locally. Thus, our execution model can take full advantage of inter- and intra-operator parallelism that is present in complex queries. We conducted a performance evaluation using an implementation of our execution model on a 72-processor KSR computer. The experiments with local load balancing show very good speed-up, even with highly skewed data. Finally, the experiments with global load balancing show that local load balancing is always maximized, thereby achieving overall good performance.
