The behavior and structure of a shared-memory parallel program can be characterized by a task graph that encodes the instructions, memory accesses, and dependencies of each piece of parallel work. Task graphs are not specific to one threading library or target architecture. The Contech analysis framework provides the means for generating and analyzing task graphs that enable computer architects and programmers to gain a deeper understanding of parallel programs.
