Scalable Software Latency Hiding Schemes: Evaluation of the Poststore and Prefetch Options

Abstract

Most latency hiding studies for Distributed Shared Memory (DSM) systems use prefetching, while few explore use of poststoring. This study develops, and compares performance gains obtained using, a runtime poststoring scheme (PST) and an application-specific prefetching scheme (PFH). The PST and PFH schemes produced scalable reductions in loop execution… (More)
