Location Consistency-A New Memory Model and Cache Consistency Protocol

  title={Location Consistency-A New Memory Model and Cache Consistency Protocol},
  author={Guang R. Gao and Vivek Sarkar},
  journal={IEEE Trans. Computers},
Existing memory models and cache consistency protocols assume the memory coherence property which requires that all processors observe the same ordering of write operations to the same location. In this paper, we address the problem of de ning a memory model that does not rely on the memory coherence assumption, and also the problem of designing a cache consistency protocol based on such a memory model. We de ne a new memory consistency model, called Location Consistency (LC), in which the… CONTINUE READING
