Due to complex abstractions implemented over shared data structures protected by locks, conventional symmetric multithreaded operating system kernel such as Linux is hard to achieve high scalability on the emerging multi-core architectures, which integrate more and more cores on a single die. This paper presents GenerOS - a general asymmetric operating system kernel for multi-core systems. In principal, GenerOS partitions processing cores into application core, kernel core and interrupt core… CONTINUE READING
