  1. 1. Software Techniques for Distributed Shared Memory

    Author : Zoran Radovic; Erik Hagersten; Sandhya Dwarkadas; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; synchronization; distributed shared memory; write permission cache; nonuniform communication architecture; node affinity; locality; hardware-software trade-off; profiling; flexibility; trap-based memory architecture; Computer engineering; Datorteknik; Data- och systemvetenskap; Computer Systems Sciences;

    Abstract : In large multiprocessors, the access to shared memory is often nonuniform, and may vary as much as ten times for some distributed shared-memory architectures (DSMs). This dissertation identifies another important nonuniform property of DSM systems: nonuniform communication architecture, NUCA. READ MORE

  2. 2. Towards Low-Complexity Scalable Shared-Memory Architectures

    Author : Håkan Zeffer; Erik Hagersten; John Carter; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; shared memory; distributed shared memory; hardware-software trade-off; software coherence; coherence profiling; remote access cache; chip multiprocessor; simultaneous multi threading; simulation; workload characterization; statistical cache model; Computer engineering; Datorteknik;

    Abstract : Plentiful research has addressed low-complexity software-based shared-memory systems since the idea was first introduced more than two decades ago. However, software-coherent systems have not been very successful in the commercial marketplace. We believe there are two main reasons for this: lack of performance and/or lack of binary compatibility. READ MORE

  4. 4. Topics in Distributed Algorithms: On Wireless Networks, Distributed Storage and Streaming

    Author : Thomas Petig; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Message Passing; Wireless Networks; Time Division Multiple Access; Shared Memory; Fault-Tolerance; Streaming; NP-Hardness; Distributed Algorithm; Optimisation; TDMA;

    Abstract : Distributed algorithms are executed on a set of computational instances. Werefer to these instances as nodes. Nodes are runningconcurrently and are independent from each other. Furthermore, they have their own instructions and information. READ MORE
