The advance of multi-core architectures provides significant benefits for parallel and throughput-oriented computing, but the performance of individual computation threads does not improve and may even suffer a penalty because of the increased contention for shared resources. This paper explores the idea of using available general-purpose cores in a CMP as helper engines for individual threads running on the active cores. We propose a lightweight architectural framework for efficient event… CONTINUE READING
