Abstract

The contemporary large scale measuring systems in the real-time environment make extensive use of histogramming as a tool for the experimental data quality monitoring. The processing of a large number of data channels requires a suitable computing power where the graphical processors seem to be well suited. Histogramming operations run on the central and graphics processing units are discussed. Results of the performance measurements including various configurations of the allocation of the histograms in various parts of the memory of used devices are presented.
