In the last decade, many papers have been published to present sequential connected component labeling (CCL) algorithms. As modern processors are multi-core and tend to many cores, designing a CCL algorithm should address parallelism and multithreading. After a review of sequential CCL algorithms and a study of their variations, this paper presents the parallel version of the Light Speed Labeling for connected component analysis (CCA) and compares it to our parallelized implementations of State-of-the-Art sequential algorithms. We provide some benchmarks that help to figure out the intrinsic differences between these parallel algorithms. We show that thanks to its run-based processing, the LSL is intrinsically more efficient and faster than all pixel-based algorithms. We show also, that all the pixel-based are memory-bound on multi-socket machines and so are inefficient and do not scale, whereas LSL, thanks to its RLE compression can scale on such high-end machines. On a 4 × 15-core machine, and for 8192 × 8192 images, LSL outperforms its best competitor by a factor ×10.8 and achieves a throughput of 42.4 gigapixel labeled per second.
