  author={Seung-Jai Min and Rudolf Eigenmann},
Irregular applications pose challenges in optimizing communication, due to the difficulty of analyzing irregular data accesses accurately and efficiently. This challenge is especially big when translating irregular shared-memory applications to message-passing form for clusters. The lack of effective irregular data analysis in the translation system results in unnecessary or redundant communication, which limits application scalability. In this paper, we present a Lean Distributed Shared Memory… CONTINUE READING
