The functionality of the host code is described as below:

  • Creates dedicated 15 CU handles for 15 CUs

  • Submits 15 CU execution requests

  • When a CU is finished, it is executed again. In this way, all 15 CUs kept running.

  • The above process continues for a certain time, in this example for 20 seconds.

  • After 20 seconds host code calculates the total number of completed CU executions.

The greater number of CU executions in a given time interval signifies the more work done with increased throughput.

As a side note, for brevity, the host code is simplified by using the same data input per CU execution. As the host code is solely focusing on CU execution, it is a simplified version without implementing other typical host functionalities such as verification of returned data from the CUs, error checking, etc.
