We consider a network of workstations (NOW) organization consisting of busbased multiprocessors interconnected by an ATM interconnect on which a sharedmemory programming model is imposed by using a multiple-writer distributed virtual shared memory system. The latencies associated with bringing data into the local memory are a severe performance limitation of such systems. To tolerate the access latencies, we propose a novel prefetch approach and show how it can be integrated into the software… CONTINUE READING
