Efficient processing of graph applications on heterogeneous CPU-GPU systems require effectively harnessing the combined power of both the CPU and GPU devices. This paper presents HyPar, a divide-and-conquer model for processing graph applications on hybrid CPU-GPU systems. Our strategy partitions the given graph across the devices and performs simultaneous independent computations on both the devices. The model provides a simple and generic API, supported with efficient runtime strategies for hybrid executions. The divide-and-conquer model is demonstrated with five graph applications and using experiments with these applications on a heterogeneous system it is shown that our HyPar strategy provides equivalent performance to the state-of-art, optimized CPU-only and GPU-only implementations of the corresponding applications. When compared to the prevalent BSP approach for multi-device executions of graphs, our HyPar method yields 74%-92% average performance improvements.
