Although cache-coherent shared-memory multiprocessors are often used to run commercial workloads, little work has been done to characterize how well these machines support such workloads. In particular, we do not have much insight into the demands of commercial workloads on the memory subsystem of these machines. In this paper, we analyze in detail the memory access patterns of several queries that are representative of Decision Support System (DSS) databases. Our analysis shows that the memory… CONTINUE READING
