             Summary: Memory-inefficiency due to breath-first instruction generation 
                 Key: SYSTEMML-2039
             Project: SystemML
          Issue Type: Bug
            Reporter: Matthias Boehm

In large DAGs, the strict topological ordering (depth-first) instruction generation causes
unnecessary memory-inefficiency and unnecessary evictions. Depth-first instruction generation
ensures that all consumers of a DAG input (bound to a logical variable name) are executed
before the logical variable is overwritten by an output. For example, in below script
E = A * B + C * D
F = (A + B) + (C + D)
we compute A*B, C*D, A+B, C+D, and subsequently AB+CD, (A+B)+(C+D), which causes unnecessary
memory pressure in the lower levels of the DAG. Furthermore, this also causes poor temporal

Instead, we should use a two-level approach where all intermediates are computed in a depth-first
manner, and all transient writes are scheduled after these operations.
