Scalable Shared Memory Multiprocessors: Volume 124 by Philip Bitar,Jean-Marc Frailong,Caral S. Ellis,Joonwon

By Philip Bitar,Jean-Marc Frailong,Caral S. Ellis,Joonwon Lee,Mark D. Hill,Andrew Ladd,Alexander V. Veidenbaum,Anoop Gupta,Michel Dubois,Shreekant S. Thakkar

The workshop on Scalable Shared reminiscence Multiprocessors happened on could 26 and 27 1990 on the Stouffer Madison inn in Seattle, Washington as a prelude to the 1990 overseas Symposium on computing device structure. approximately a hundred members listened for 2 days to the displays of twenty-two invited the inducement for this workshop used to be to audio system, from academia and undefined. advertise the unfastened alternate of principles between researchers engaged on shared-memory multiprocessor architectures. there has been abundant chance to argue with audio system, and definitely members didn't chorus a piece from doing so. sincerely, the matter of scalability in shared-memory multiprocessors continues to be a wide-open query. We have been even not able to agree on a definition of "scalability". Authors had greater than six months to organize their manuscript, and for that reason the papers incorporated during this complaints are refinements of the audio system' shows, according to the criticisms obtained on the workshop. hence, 17 authors contributed to those court cases. we want to thank them for his or her diligence and care. The contributions in those court cases could be partitioned into 4 different types 1. entry Order and Synchronization 2. functionality three. Cache Protocols and Architectures four. allotted Shared reminiscence specific issues on which new rules and effects are provided in those lawsuits contain: effective schemes for combining networks, formal specification of shared­ reminiscence types, correctness of trace-driven simulations,synchronization, a number of coherence protocols, .
