Introducing Runahead Threads for SMT Processors

Abstract

In this paper, we propose Runahead threads on Simultaneous Multithreading processors as a valuable solution for both exploiting the memory-level parallelism and reducing the resource contention. This approach transforms a memory-bounded eager resource thread into a speculative light thread, alleviating critical resource con icts among multiple threads… (More)
