Most of today’s multiprocessors have a DistributedShared Memory (DSM) organization, which enables scalability while retaining the convenience of the shared-memory programming paradigm. Data locality is crucial for performance in DSM machines, due to the difference in access times between local and remote memories. In this paper, we present a compile-time representation that captures the memory locality exhibited by a program in the form of a graph known asLocality-Communication Graph ( LCG).
