As the workstation market moves form single processor to small-scale shared memory multiprocessors, it is very attractive to construct larger-scale multiprocessors by connecting symmetric multiprocessors (SMPs) with eecient commodity network interfaces such as Myrinet. With hardware-supported cache-coherent shared memory within the SMPs, the question is what programming model to support across SMPs. A coherent shared address space has been found to be attractive for a wide range of applications… CONTINUE READING
