  1. 1. Performance Modeling of Multi-core Systems Caches and Locks

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Xiaoyue Pan; Uppsala universitet.; Uppsala universitet.; [2016]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; performance modeling; performance analysis; multi-core; cache; lock;

    Abstract : Performance is an important aspect of computer systems since it directly affects user experience. One way to analyze and predict performance is via performance modeling. In recent years, multi-core systems have made processors more powerful while keeping power consumption relatively low. READ MORE

  2. 2. Caches, Transactions and Memories Models, Coherence and Consistency

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Yunyun Zhu; Uppsala universitet.; Uppsala universitet.; [2018]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; cache coherence protocol; transactional memory; weak memory model; model checking; parameterized system; Computer Science; Datavetenskap;

    Abstract : Computers have brought us inestimable convenience in recent years. We have become dependent on them and more sensitive to their performance. During the past decades, we have been trying to improve program efficiency. The invention of multi-core systems is regarded as the new era of boosting performance of computer programs. READ MORE

  3. 3. Understanding Multicore Performance Efficient Memory System Modeling and Simulation

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Andreas Sandberg; Uppsala universitet.; Uppsala universitet.; [2014]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Computer Architecture; Simulation; Modeling; Sampling; Caches; Memory Systems; gem5; Parallel Simulation; Virtualization; Sampling; Multicore; Datavetenskap; Computer Science;

    Abstract : To increase performance, modern processors employ complex techniques such as out-of-order pipelines and deep cache hierarchies. While the increasing complexity has paid off in performance, it has become harder to accurately predict the effects of hardware/software optimizations in such systems. READ MORE

  4. 4. Design Considerations of Value-aware Caches

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Angelos Arelakis; [2013]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Memory; Data Compression; Statistical-based Compression; Value Locality; Cache; Huffman Coding;

    Abstract : On-chip cache memories are instrumental in tackling several performance and energy issues facing contemporary and future microprocessor chip architectures. First, they are key to bridge the growing speed-gap between memory and processors. READ MORE

  5. 5. Techniques to Reduce Energy Dissipation in Level-1 Data Caches

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Alen Bardizbanyan; [2013]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY;

    Abstract : The number of battery powered devices is growing significantly and these devices require energy-efficient hardware to operate for a useful period of time. Also, the future of the performance scaling in processors depends on the energy efficiency as the increasing number of cores on a single chip does not leave room for inefficient microarchitectures.
