  1. 1. The Impact of Application and Architecture Properties on Real-Time Multiprocessor Scheduling

    Author : Jan Jonsson; [1997]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; real-time scheduling; multiprocessor architectures; architecture properties; application properties; performance evaluation; predictability;

    Abstract : Guaranteeing the temporal correctness of a real-time system is a very challenging problem since application and architecture properties may be hard to model accurately. For example, modern computer architectures are typically equipped with mechanisms, such as cache memories and instruction pipelines, whose behavior are by nature stochastic. READ MORE

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

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Universitetsbiblioteket

    Author : Håkan Zeffer; Erik Hagersten; John Carter; [2006]
    Keywords : 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; TECHNOLOGY Information technology Computer engineering; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Informationsteknik 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

  3. 3. Techniques to Tighten the Upper Bound on the ExecutionTime of Task-based Parallel Applications

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Universitetsbiblioteket

    Author : Petros Voudouris; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Parallel; Identical; Multiprocessor; WCET; multicore; DAG; Uniform; Hard; Real-Time; Homogeneous; Dynamic; Unrelated; Makespan; Related; Scheduling;

    Abstract : To use multiprocessors in hard real-time systems, schedulability analysis is needed to provide formally proven guarantees for the timing behavior of the system. Programming models for parallel applications, such as OpenMP, use pragmas to specify parts of the application as parallel tasks, for example, a function or a body of a loop. READ MORE

  4. 4. A robust scheduling technique for fine-grain real-time computations

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Universitetsbiblioteket

    Author : Annika Olsson; [1995]

  5. 5. Exploiting data locality in adaptive architectures

    University dissertation from Uppsala University

    Author : Dan Wallin; Erik Hagersten; Sverker Holmgren; [2003]
    Keywords : 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
