    • Fine-grain producer-initiated communication in cache-coherent multiprocessors 

      Abdel-Shafi, Hazim M. (1997)
      Shared-memory multiprocessors are becoming increasingly popular as a high-performance, easy to program, and relatively inexpensive choice for parallel computation. However, the performance of shared-memory multiprocessors is limited by memory latency. Memory latencies are higher in multiprocessors due to physical constraints and cache coherence ...
    • Reliable parallel computing on clusters of multiprocessors 

      Abdel-Shafi, Hazim M. (2000)
      This dissertation describes the design, implementation, and performance of two mechanisms that address reliability and system management problems associated with parallel computing clusters: thread migration and checkpoint/recovery. A unique aspect of this work is the integration of these two mechanisms. Although there has been considerable prior ...
