Scaling shared-bus multiprocessors with multiple buses and shared caches: a performance study

Abstract

The main limitation of shared-bus multiprocessors is that the common bus tends to be the primary source for contention, and thus imposes a limit on the number of processors in the system. Alternative architectural features are necessary to reduce the memory bandwidth demands and to increase the bus bandwidth. In this paper, we investigate the cost… (More)
