This paper presents the case for a run-time operating system to provide predictable and controllable resource management for parallel applications. Developments in compilers for parallel applications, which depend on analysis of program behaviour, require corresponding developments in predictable and controllable operating systemlevel resource management. A customisable system, Arena, is described which provides operating system-level resource management at user-level, where it is accessible to… CONTINUE READING
