Abstract

In the aerospace sciences we produce huge amounts of data. This data must be arranged in a meaningful order, so that we can analyze or visualize it. In this paper we focus on data that is distributed among computer processes and then needs to be sorted by a single root process for further analysis. We assume that the memory on the root process is too small to hold all sorted data at once, so that we have to perform the sorting and processing of data chunk-wise. We prove the efficiency of our approach in weak scaling tests, where we achieve a near constant bandwidth. Additionally, we obtain a considerable speed up compared to the standard parallel external sort. We also demonstrate the usefulness of our algorithm in a real-life aviation application.
