  • Package Structure
       rodinia_2.0/bin : binary executables
       rodinia_2.0/common : common configuration file
       rodinia_2.0/cuda : source code for the CUDA implementations
       rodinia_2.0/data : input files
       rodinia_2.0/openmp : source code for the OpenMP implementations
       rodinia_2.0/opencl : source code for the OpenCL implementations
  • Build Rodinia
       1. Install CUDA/OCK drivers, SDK and toolkit on your machine
       2. Modify the rodinia_2.0/common/make.config file 
       3. 'Make' the programs (We also provide Makefiles for each benchmark)
  • Run Rodinia
       There is a 'run' file specifying the sample command to run each program.

Version History:

  • Oct. 09, 2012: Rodinia 2.2 is released
   - BFS: Delete invalid flag CL_MEM_USE_HOST_PTR from _clMallocRW and _clMalloc functions in opencl verion. 
      Thanks Alexey Kravets (CARP European research project).
   - Hotspot: correct the index calculation as grid_cols *loadYidx + loadXidx. Correct the same problem in Thanks Alexey Kravets.
   - Pathfinder: Added two __syncthreads in dynproc_kernel function of CUDA version to avoid data race. 
      Thanks Ronny Krashinsky(Nvidia company) and Jiayuan Meng(Argonne National Laboratory).
      Alexey Kravets found and corrected the same problem in opencl version. 
   - SRAD: Replace CUDA function __syncthreads() in srad OpenCL kernel with OpenCL barrier(CLK_LOCAL_MEM_FENCE).
   - NN: Fixed the bug of CUDA version on certain input sizes. 
      The new version detects excess of x-dimension size limit of a CUDA block grid and executes a two-dimensional grid if needed.(Only cuda version has this problem)
   - Promote B+Tree to main distribution (with output)
   - Promote Myocyte to main distribution (with output)
  • June 27, 2012: Rodinia 2.1 is released
   - Include fixes for SRAD, Heartwall, Particle Filter and Streamcluster
  • Nov 23, 2011: Rodinia 2.0.1 is released
   - Include a CUDA version of NN comparable to the OCL version.
   - Use a new version of clutils that is BSD, not GPL.
  • Nov 11, 2011: Rodinia 2.0 is released
   - Include several applications into the main suite:
      lavaMD, Gaussian Elimination, Pathfinder, k-Nearest Neighbor and Particle Filter. 
      Detailed application information can also be found at
   - Merge new OpenCL implementations into the main tarball.
  • Mar 01, 2010: Rodinia 1.0 is released
