The OpenMP standard is the primary mechanism used at high performance computing facilities to allow intra-process parallelization. In contrast, many HEP specific software packages (such as CMSSW, GaudiHive, and ROOT) make use of Intel’s Threading Building Blocks (TBB) library to accomplish the same goal. In these proceedings we will discuss our work to compare TBB and OpenMP when used for scheduling algorithms to be run by a HEP style data processing framework. This includes both scheduling of different interdependent algorithms to be run concurrently as well as scheduling concurrent work within one algorithm. As part of the discussion we present an overview of the OpenMP threading model. We also explain how we used OpenMP when creating a simplified HEP-like processing framework. Using that simplified framework, and a similar one written using TBB, we will present performance comparisons between TBB and different compiler versions of OpenMP.
