SWEL: Hardware cache coherence protocols to map shared data onto shared caches

Abstract

Snooping and directory-based coherence protocols have become the de facto standard in chip multi-processors, but neither design is without drawbacks. Snooping protocols are not scalable, while directory protocols incur directory storage overhead, frequent indirections, and are more prone to design bugs. In this paper, we propose a novel coherence protocol… (More)
