Simple COMA Node Implementations

  title={Simple COMA Node Implementations},
  author={Erik Hagersten and Ashley Saulsbury and Anders Landin},
Shared memory architectures often have caches to reduce the number of slow remote memory accesses. The largest possible caches exist in shared memory architectures called Cache-Only Memory Architectures (COMAs). In a COMA all the memory resources are used to implement large caches. Unfortunately, these large caches also have their price. Due to its lack of physically shared memory, COMA may su er from a longer remote access latency than alternatives. Large COMA caches might also introduce an… CONTINUE READING
