coarse grain ==>
<jargon, parallel> The size of the units of code under consideration in
some context. The term generally refers to the level of detail at which code is
considered, e.g. "You can specify the granularity for this profiling tool".
The most common computing use is in parallelism where "fine grain parallelism"
means individual tasks are relatively small in terms of code size and execution
time, "coarse grain" is the opposite. You talk about the "granularity" of the
The smaller the granularity, the greater the potential for parallelism and hence
speed-up but the greater the overheads of synchronisation and communication.
