About the Edition

An important characteristic of CC-NUMA multiprocessors is the relative difference in latency between local and remote memory accesses. For many applications running on these systems, the amount of time spent stalled on remote memory accesses can make up a significant fraction of the total execution time. Previous work has shown that proper placement of pages in memory can reduce much of this time by changing remote memory accesses to local memory accesses. This work has also shown that such placement decisions are most effective when they are based on the caching behaviour of those pages. In this thesis, we present a new method of predicting such caching behaviour at allocation time, and making appropriate placement decisions based on these predictions. This method required minimal additions to the memory subsystem of the University of Toronto Tornado operating system, and no special hardware for monitoring the memory hierarchy. We also show that this method can result in improvements of up to 35% in total execution time over traditional placement policies such as first-touch placement when the data sets of the applications being run exceeds the size of a local memory node. These results hold for both single application and multiprogrammed workloads.

Abstract: The memory consistency model of a system affects performance, programmability, and portability. We aim to describe memory consistency models in a way that most computer professionals would understand. This is important if the performance-enhancing features being incorporated by system designers are to be correctly and widely used by programmers. Phil Storrs PC Hardware book Cache Memory Systems We can represent a computers memory and storage systems, hierarchy with a triangle with the processors internal registers at the top and the hard drive at the bottom. The internal registers are the fastest and most expensive memory in the system and the system memory is the least expensive. The memory holds data fetched from the main memory or updated by the CPU. The control unit decides whether a memory access by the CPU is HIT or MISS, serves the requested data, loads and stores the data to the main memory and decides where to store data in the cache memory. Another common part of the cache memory is a tag table.

A Survey of Cache Coherence Mechanisms in Shared Memory Multiprocessors Ramon Lawrence Department of Computer Science University of Manitoba [email protected] Abstract This paper is a survey of cache coherence mechanisms in shared memory multiprocessors.

Cache. Non-uniform memory access (NUMA) is a computer memory design used in multiprocessing, where the memory access time depends on the memory location relative to the NUMA, a processor can access its own local memory faster than non-local memory (memory local to another processor or memory shared between processors).

The benefits of NUMA are. Cache-only memory architecture. Cache only memory architecture (COMA) is a computer memory organization for use in multiprocessors in which the local memories (typically DRAM) at each node are used as cache.

This is in contrast to using the local memories as actual main memory, as in NUMA organizations. CPU-cache or memory node) the data is located. For this reason, the placement of threads and memory plays a crucial role in performance. This property inspired many NUMA-aware algorithms for operating systems.

Their insight is to place threads close to their mem-ory [19, 12, 9], spread the memory pages across the sys. DASH is a scalable shared-memory multiprocessor currently being developed at Stanford's Computer Systems Laboratory.

The architecture consists of powerful processing nodes, each with a portion of the shared-memory, connected to a scalable interconnection network. A key feature of DASH is its distributed directory-based cache coherence by: memory) and data is replicated to local memory as well as the cache on a miss.

Examples of such machines include the commercially available KSR-1 [9] and the Swedish Data Diffusion Machine (DDM) [7]. COMA multiprocessors have a significant advantage over CC-NUMA multiprocessors when it comes to servicing capacity and conflict cache misses. Memory Hierarchy and Cache Misses Today’s computer systems use fast cache memory to fill the speed gap between CPU and main memory.

For example, on the SUN Enterprise with MHz UltraSparc II CPU and EDO DRAM, L2 cache hit takes about 8 processor clocks, while L2 cache miss takes about processor clocks [Sun97]. The verification of cache coherence under a relaxed memory model is much more com- plex.

First of all, the sequence of memory accesses driving the system cannot just be any arbitrary sequence of loads and stores. Consider the execution of figure 1 in a system with a relaxed mem- ory model [1, 2, 9, 14]. Purchase Cache Memory Book, The - 2nd Edition.
