Efforts to extract threads from sequential imperative programs have generally had moderate success, but what exactly are the reasons behind this? In this talk I will present Embla, a dependency profiler based on Valgrind that enables us to dynamically pin down parallelism-limiting dependencies. I will present the results of using Embla to analyse limits of task-level parallelism in the SPEC integer benchmarks. I will also discuss what it is that restricts parallelism in these programs, and what we can do to increase the potential for parallelism. [Joint work with Farl-Filip Faxén and Sverker Janson]
