A key issue for Cluster-enabled OpenMP implementations based on software Distributed Shared Memory (sDSM) systems, is maintaining the consistency of the shared memory space. This forms the major source of overhead for these systems, and is driven by the detection and servicing of page faults. This paper investigates how application performance can be modelled based on the number of page faults. Two simple models are proposed, one based on the number of page faults along the critical path of the...[Show more]
