Improving CC-NUMA Performance Using Instruction-Based Prediction

  title={Improving CC-NUMA Performance Using Instruction-Based Prediction},
  author={Stefanos Kaxiras and James R. Goodman},
We propose Instruction-based Prediction as a means to optimize directory-based cache coherent NUMA shared-memory. Instruction-based prediction is based on observing the behavior of load and store instructions in relation to coherent events and predicting their future behavior. Although this technique is well established in the uniprocessor world, it has not been widely applied for optimizing transparent shared-memory. Typically, in this environment, prediction is based on data-block access… CONTINUE READING
