  1. 1. Exploiting data locality in adaptive architectures

    Author : Dan Wallin; Erik Hagersten; Sverker Holmgren; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Computer Systems; Datorteknik;

    Abstract : The speed of processors increases much faster than the memory access time. This makes memory accesses expensive. To meet this problem, cache hierarchies are introduced to serve the processor with data. However, the effectiveness of caches depends on the amount of locality in the application's memory access pattern. READ MORE

  2. 2. Methods for Creating and Exploiting Data Locality

    Author : Dan Wallin; Erik Hagersten; Sverker Holmgren; David Wood; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; data locality; temporal locality; spatial locality; prefetching; cache; cache behavior; cache coherence; snooping protocols; partial differential equation; shared-memory multiprocessor; chip multiprocessor; simulation; Computer engineering; Datorteknik;

    Abstract : The gap between processor speed and memory latency has led to the use of caches in the memory systems of modern computers. Programs must use the caches efficiently and exploit data locality for maximum performance. READ MORE
