This work describes an adaptive parallel pipeline skeleton which maps pipeline stages to the best processors available in the system and clears dynamically emerging performance bottlenecks at run-time by re-mapping affected stages to other processors. It is implemented in C and MPI and evaluated on a non-dedicated heterogeneous Linux cluster. We report upon the skeleton’s ability to respond to an artificially generated variation in the background load across the cluster.
