An optimized Parallel Failure-less Aho-Corasick algorithm for DNA sequence matching

Vajira Thambawita, Roshan G. Ragel, Dhammike Elkaduwe

The Aho-Corasick algorithm is multiple patterns searching algorithm running sequentially in various applications like network intrusion detection and bioinformatics for finding several input strings within a given large input string. The parallel version of the Aho-Corasick algorithm is called as Parallel Failure-less Aho-Corasick algorithm because it doesn't need failure links like in the original Aho-Corasick algorithm. In this research, we implemented an application specific parallel failureless Aho-Corasick algorithm to the general purpose graphics processing unit by applying several cache optimization techniques for matching DNA sequences. Our parallel Aho-Corasick algorithm shows better performance than the available parallel Aho-Corasick algorithm library due to its simplicity and optimized cache memory usage of graphics processing units for matching DNA sequences.
