Memory-aware Scheduling for Energy Efficiency on Multicore Processors

  title={Memory-aware Scheduling for Energy Efficiency on Multicore Processors},
  author={Andreas Merkel and Frank Bellosa},
Memory bandwidth is a scarce resource in multicore systems. Scheduling has a dramatic impact on the delay introduced by memory contention, but also on the effectiveness of frequency scaling at saving energy. This paper investigates the cross-effects between tasks running on a multicore system, considering memory contention and the technical constraint of chip-wide frequency and voltage settings. We make the following contributions: 1) We identify the memory characteristics of tasks and sort… CONTINUE READING
