Symmetric multiprocessing (SMP) virtual machines (VMs) allow users to take advantage of a multiprocessor infrastructure. Despite the advantage, SMP VMs can cause synchronization latency to increase significantly, depending on task scheduling. In this paper, we show that even if a SMP VM runs non-concurrent applications, the synchronization latency problem… CONTINUE READING
