Abstract

This paper presents the performance evaluations of GMP-based applications on Web-based Volunteer Computing (VC) systems. Web-based VC is expected to gather many volunteer participants (workers) by allowing workers to execute a computation program (job) on Web browsers. On the other hand, the job execution performance on workers degraded because jobs are executed on Web browsers. To reveal the actual performance of Web-based VC, we convert practical applications which use GMP, that is a multi-precision library for scientific computations, and evaluate its performance. The experimental results show that the performance degradation is negligibly small in some cases, e.g. a short bit-length of arguments. This paper also shows a potential for the performance improvement of Web-based VC by substituting GMP functions.
