Abstract / Description of output

We present a set of extensions to an existing microbenchmark suite for OpenMP. The new benchmarks measure the overhead of the task construct introduced in the OpenMP 3.0 standard, and associated task synchronisation constructs. We present the results from a variety of compilers and hardware platforms, which demonstrate some significant differences in performance between different OpenMP implementations.
