Improving Release-Consistent Shared Virtual Memory Using Automatic Update

  title={Improving Release-Consistent Shared Virtual Memory Using Automatic Update},
  author={Liviu Iftode and Cezary Dubnicki and Edward W. Felten and Kai Li},
Shared virtual memory is a software technique to provide shared memory on a network of computers without special hardware support. Although several relaxed consistency models and implementations are quite e ective, there is still a considerable performance gap between the \software-only" approach and the hardware approach that uses directory-based caches. Automatic update is a simple communication mechanism, implemented in the SHRIMP multicomputer, that forwards local writes to remote memory… CONTINUE READING
