Toward Transparent Selective Sequential Consistency in Distributed Shared Memory Systems

  title={Toward Transparent Selective Sequential Consistency in Distributed Shared Memory Systems},
  author={Chengzheng Sun and Zhiyi Huang and Wan-Ju Lei and Abdul Sattar},
This paper proposes a transparent selective sequential consistency approach to Distributed Shared Memory (DSM) systems. First, three basic techniques | time selection, processor selection, and data selection { are analyzed for improving the performance of strictly sequential consistency DSM systems, and a transparent approach to achieving these selections is proposed. Then, this paper focuses on the protocols and techniques devised to achieve transparent data selection, including a novel… CONTINUE READING
