Detailed Description

The reference documentation of the librsb library comes in both HTML and Unix man pages formats. The following sections/man pages are available: The librsb library interface (rsb.h, rsb.F90) ; The Sparse BLAS interface to librsb (blas_sparse.h, rsb_blas_sparse.F90) ; Example programs and code.

In general, users of this library are interested in high performance sparse matrix computations on cache based shared memory parallel computers. For this, librsb offers a native C interface (here documented) and a Fortran one (in rsb.F90, equivalent to the C declaration headers from rsb.h), in addition to a the Sparse BLAS one (both C and Fortran, documented).

Configuration, build, and installation instructions are contained in the README file distributed in the sources archive.

Typical program structure

  • initialize librsb with rsb_lib_init()
  • (in any order) allocate matrices (e.g.: with rsb_mtx_alloc_from_coo_inplace() or others); do any computation with them (e.g.: rsb_spmv(), rsb_spsv() ); converting matrices (e.g.: with rsb_mtx_switch_to_coo() ); freeing matrices (rsb_mtx_free() )
  • finalize librsb with rsb_lib_exit()

Important usage notes

General program structure Before calling any librsb function, a program is required to initialize librsb's internal status. This is done by calling rsb_lib_init() . Afterwards, any librsb function can be safely used. When librsb functions are not intended to be called anymore, a program may call rsb_lib_exit() to free any resource. Then, rsb_lib_init() should be called for further usage of librsb.

Manipulating matrices and vectors In order to use librsb, the user is not required to use explicitly any of librsb's data structures: their manipulation is to be performed by librsb functions. Therefore, knowledge of librsb's matrix type (rsb_mtx_t) is not necessary at all: this structure is intended to be used as an opaque container.

On the contrary, arrays for numerical vectors (or more generally, dense matrices) are expected to be managed by the user: librsb does not furnish any specific vector type. Computational functions treat dense vectors/matrices are simple arrays of a specified type; see the Example programs and code .

Computational functions This library can be configured at build time to support a custom subset of numerical types. To keep the programming interface compact, it has been decided to not replicate the computational functions to each numerical type. Instead, the type is expected to be specified by the user via a type flag. For instance, matrix assembly functions (e.g.: rsb_mtx_alloc_from_coo_const() ) accept a type information and keep it stored in the matrix structure. Therefore, computational functions (e.g.: rsb_spmv() ) can fetch this information from their rsb_mtx_t operand, and treat accordingly the other parameters (e.g.: alphap, Xp, ...). Mixed type operations are currently not supported.

Memory management

Matrix structures (rsb_mtx_t) allocated by librsb shall be freed only via rsb_mtx_free() .

Benchmarking

If you want to benchmark this library, there are different possibilities:

#!/bin/sh
# systematic comparative benchmark, mostly for dense matrices
# (with Intel MKL, if linked) benchmark comparing   
# produces a number of plots systematically
bench/dense.sh
# the benchmark command; assumes A.mtx is a file in Matrix Market format
./rsbench -oa -Ob -f A.mtx -qH -R -n1 -t100 --verbose -TD --compare-competitors 
# rsbench is very flexible tool; see the help for it:
./rsbench -oa -Ob --help

Tuning and Customization

There are different ./configure options you may look at for tuning or customizing the library.

See also:

rsb_time, rsb_coo_sort

Note:

By invoking with swapped IA and JA (and swapping nrA and ncA as well) one can obtain column major order.

rsb_err_t rsb_file_mtx_get_dims (const char * filename, rsb_coo_idx_t * nrp, rsb_coo_idx_t * ncp, rsb_coo_idx_t * nzp, rsb_flags_t * flagsp)

Reads structural information (dimensions, structural flags) for a matrix file into user specified (and optionally NULL) variables.

Parameters:

filename The specified matrix file name (cannot be NULL).
nrp,ncp Output pointers to rows and columns count variables (can be NULL).
nzp Output pointer to the nonzeroes count variable (can be NULL).

Returns:

RSB_ERR_NO_ERROR on correct operation, an error code otherwise. You can use rsb_strerror_r() or rsb_perror() to get more information about the error. If read dimensions are illegal (see rsb_coo_idx_t,rsb_nnz_idx_t), RSB_ERR_LIMITS will be returned.

Note:

The only sparse matrix file format currently supported is Matrix Market. E.g.:

%%MatrixMarket matrix coordinate real symmetric
%
% A Hilbert Matrix of order 3, so with 3 rows, 3 columns, and 6 nonzeroes.
%
3 3 6
1 1 1.0
2 1 0.5
2 2 0.33
3 1 0.33
3 2 0.25
3 3 0.2

In the above example header on the first line, you can specify either real or complex or pattern for the numerical type. Either general, symmetric, hermitian can be specified for the structure. In case of pattern matrices, only coordinate indices will be loaded (saving pattern matrices is not yet supported); in case of real matrices, also one coefficient value will be saved/loaded; in the case of complex matrices, both the real and imaginary parts will be saved/loaded in addition to the indices.

rsb_err_t rsb_lib_exit (struct rsb_initopts * iop)

Finalize librsb.
rsb_lib_exit should be called after having freed all matrices.
If not all of the data structures were properly deallocated before, this function may still attempt finalizing the library and return the RSB_ERR_MEMORY_LEAK error code (this depends on the --enable-allocator-wrapper configure time option). Any allocated memory will be lost (librsb does not keep track of allocated matrices).
Internal library state will be cleared. After this call, it is legal to initialize the library again, by calling rsb_lib_init().
On an error, the library state may be inconsistent, so it is advisable to either terminate program execution (rather than forcing a new initialization with rsb_lib_init()).
Parameter iop is reserved for future use; for now it is safe to pass RSB_NULL_EXIT_OPTIONS.

Parameters:

iop A pointer to a rsb_initopts structure with library options. It may be NULL (or better, RSB_NULL_INIT_OPTIONS/RSB_NULL_EXIT_OPTIONS) for specifying default options.

Returns:

RSB_ERR_NO_ERROR on correct operation, an error code otherwise. You can use rsb_strerror_r() or rsb_perror() to get more information about the error.

See also:

rsb_lib_init, rsb_lib_set_opt_str, rsb_lib_reinit, rsb_lib_exit, rsb_lib_get_opt, rsb_lib_set_opt, or (deprecated) macros RSB_REINIT_SINGLE_VALUE_GET, RSB_REINIT_SINGLE_VALUE_SET, RSB_REINIT_SINGLE_VALUE, RSB_REINIT_SINGLE_VALUE_C_IOP..

rsb_err_t rsb_lib_init (struct rsb_initopts * iop)

This is the library initialization function.
It must be called only once before using any other library function.
It is allowed to call it again after rsb_lib_exit().
To fine-tune the library behaviour, one may specify a number of options via the iop parameter.
Options may be specified also after rsb_lib_init() by calling rsb_lib_reinit().
One may call RSB_REINIT_SINGLE_VALUE_GET with flag RSB_IO_WANT_IS_INITIALIZED_MARKER to verify whether the library has been initialized or not.

Parameters:

iop A pointer to a rsb_initopts structure with library options. It may be NULL (or better, RSB_NULL_INIT_OPTIONS/RSB_NULL_EXIT_OPTIONS) for specifying default options.

Returns:

RSB_ERR_NO_ERROR on correct operation, an error code otherwise. You can use rsb_strerror_r() or rsb_perror() to get more information about the error.

See also:

rsb_lib_init, rsb_lib_set_opt_str, rsb_lib_reinit, rsb_lib_exit, rsb_lib_get_opt, rsb_lib_set_opt, or (deprecated) macros RSB_REINIT_SINGLE_VALUE_GET, RSB_REINIT_SINGLE_VALUE_SET, RSB_REINIT_SINGLE_VALUE, RSB_REINIT_SINGLE_VALUE_C_IOP..

rsb_err_t rsb_lib_reinit (struct rsb_initopts * iop)

Changes the library operation options which were set at initialization time either by a user or as defaults.
Not all options may be supported, depending on build time library settings.
If an unsupported option was specified, an appropriate error (e.g.: RSB_ERR_UNSUPPORTED_OPERATION) will be returned.
On the first error, option processing is interrupted and the remaining options (if any) are not processed.
Program execution may continue safely even if an error code is returned (that is, library status should be consistent).

Parameters:

iop A pointer to a rsb_initopts structure with library options. It may be NULL (or better, RSB_NULL_INIT_OPTIONS/RSB_NULL_EXIT_OPTIONS) for specifying default options.

Returns:

RSB_ERR_NO_ERROR on correct operation, an error code otherwise. You can use rsb_strerror_r() or rsb_perror() to get more information about the error.

See also:

rsb_lib_init, rsb_lib_set_opt_str, rsb_lib_reinit, rsb_lib_exit, rsb_lib_get_opt, rsb_lib_set_opt, or (deprecated) macros RSB_REINIT_SINGLE_VALUE_GET, RSB_REINIT_SINGLE_VALUE_SET, RSB_REINIT_SINGLE_VALUE, RSB_REINIT_SINGLE_VALUE_C_IOP..

rsb_err_t rsb_lib_set_opt_str (const rsb_char_t * opnp, const rsb_char_t * opvp)

Specifies individual library options in order to fine-tune the library behaviour. Both the option name and the value shall be expressed as strings, identical to their preprocessor identifiers (see rsb_opt_t ). The opnp string will be translated internally to the corresponding request flag values, and the passed value will be parsed out of the opvp string.

Parameters:

opnp A pointer to a library option input name string (may not be NULL).
opvp A pointer to a library option input value string (may not be NULL).

Returns:

RSB_ERR_NO_ERROR on correct operation, an error code otherwise. You can use rsb_strerror_r() or rsb_perror() to get more information about the error.

mtxAp Valid rsb_mtx_t pointer to matrix $A$ representation.
ldB Leading dimension of Bp array.
nrB,ncB The number of rows and columns for the dense matrix $B$.

Returns:

RSB_ERR_NO_ERROR on correct operation, an error code otherwise. You can use rsb_strerror_r() or rsb_perror() to get more information about the error.

Warning:

This function has not been thoroughly tested.

Note:

Please note that it suffices to 'transpose' Bp's description parameters to get $A$ transposed summed in.

Given input read only CSR format arrays, allocates and assembles an RSB matrix (stored in separate arrays).

Parameters:

VA,RP,JA Input numerical values (VA) array; compressed rows (RP) and column (JA) input indices arrays.
nnzA The number of nonzeroes in the input arrays representing matrix $A$.
typecode A valid type code for the given (numerical array) input pointer (see matrix_type_symbols_section).
nrA,ncA The number of rows and columns of the sparse matrix $A$.
brA,bcA Blocking parameters: brA should be set to 1 or RSB_DEFAULT_ROW_BLOCKING (currently unused, reserved for future use); bcA should be set to 1 or RSB_DEFAULT_ROW_BLOCKING (currently unused, reserved for future use).
flagsA A valid combination of index conversion and matrix storage flags and other meaningful flags. The encouraged base choice here is RSB_FLAG_DEFAULT_RSB_MATRIX_FLAGS. If Fortran (1 based) indices are being used for the IA, JA arrays, then the RSB_FLAG_FORTRAN_INDICES_INTERFACE flag should be added. If symmetric storage is desired, then RSB_FLAG_SYMMETRIC (or RSB_FLAG_HERMITIAN, for Hermitian matrices) is necessary, in combination with either RSB_FLAG_LOWER or RSB_FLAG_UPPER. If you intend to use this matrix for triangular solution (e.g.: rsb_spsv()/rsb_spsm()), it needs to be triangular and specified with either RSB_FLAG_LOWER_TRIANGULAR or RSB_FLAG_UPPER_TRIANGULAR, and not have RSB_FLAG_LOWER_SYMMETRIC or RSB_FLAG_LOWER_HERMITIAN. Nonzeroes non complying with the specified flags will be ignored. If RSB_FLAG_UNIT_DIAG_IMPLICIT is present, diagonal entries will be not represented but assumed to be unitary. If RSB_FLAG_DUPLICATES_SUM is present, duplicate entries will be summed together. If RSB_FLAG_DISCARD_ZEROS is present, zeroes will be discarded.

      This new structure will be completely separated and independent from the original one.
      
      Examples:

// will clone the matrix exactly
errval = rsb_mtx_clone(&mtxBp,RSB_NUMERICAL_TYPE_SAME_TYPE,RSB_TRANSPOSITION_N,NULL,mtxAp,RSB_FLAG_IDENTICAL_FLAGS);
// will clone the transpose of the matrix

errval = rsb_mtx_clone(&mtxBp,RSB_NUMERICAL_TYPE_SAME_TYPE,RSB_TRANSPOSITION_N,NULL,mtxAp,RSB_FLAG_TRIANGULAR|RSB_FLAG_LOWER);

Parameters:

mtxBpp Valid rsb_mtx_t pointer to an address for matrix $B$. If *mtxBpp==NULL, a fresh clone will be assigned there; if not, the existing matrix structure will be freed and allocated to host the new one. The case *mtxBpp==mtxAp is supported.
typecode A valid type code for the desired output matrix (see matrix_type_symbols_section).

   An auto-tuner: optimizes either the matrix instance, the thread count or both for the #rsb_spmm operation.
   The tuner works by evaluating different instances and working threads variants.  The instance leading to faster operation time will be retained and given back to the user in  *mtxOpp.  If  nrhs==1 and  order==#RSB_FLAG_WANT_COLUMN_MAJOR_ORDER, unitary stride vectors are assumed.  In case of error, the original input matrix shall be unaffected.  It is possible to specify the leading dimensions of  Bp,Cp implicitly, with   ldB=0  and  ldC=0: in this case, their values will be computed internally and if  Bp!=NULL,Cp!=NULL, they will be assumed of being sufficiently sized.  Values of  nrhs<1 will be treated as 1.   Bp,  Cp can be  NULL: temporary vectors will be allocated, used, and deallocated within the tuner. If  mtxOpp=NULL and  *tnp!=NULL the best thread count will be probed for the matrix given in  mtxAp. Please note that if threads only tuning is requested and matrix has too few leaves (see #RSB_MIF_LEAVES_COUNT__TO__RSB_BLK_INDEX_T), tuning will not work. If  mtxAp==NULL, then the  *mtxOpp instance will be used; however in this case, if a better instance is found, the original will be destroyed as with #rsb_mtx_free(). The case  mtxAp!=NULL&&*mtxOpp!=NULL is illegal and will cause an error.

mtxOpp Optimal matrix structure pointer will be assigned to *mtxOpp (it may occur that *mtxOpp==mtxAp on output). If mtxOpp is NULL then no data structure optimization will be attempted; rather, only optimal threads search will occur ( tnp must be not NULL then). aram
