Region-Based Prefetch Techniques for Software Distributed Shared Memory Systems

Cai, Jie; Strazdins, Peter; Rendell, Alistair


Although shared memory programming models show good programmability compared to message passing programming models, their implementation by page-based software distributed shared memory systems usually suffers from high memory consistency costs. The major part of these costs is internode data transfer for keeping virtual shared memory consistent. A good prefetch strategy can reduce this cost. We develop two prefetch techniques, TReP and HReP, which are based on the execution history of each...[Show more]
