Simulation of shared memory parallel systems
This thesis describes a method to simulate parallel programs written for shared memory multiprocessors. We have extended execution-driven simulation to facilitate the simulation of shared memory. We have developed a shared memory profiler, which, at compile-time, inserts simulation support code into the assembly code of the program to be able to ...
The interaction of architecture and operating system in the designing of a scalable shared memory multiprocessor
This dissertation describes the implementation and evaluation of operating system design techniques that can be used to achieve scalability and to improve performance in large-scale shared memory multiprocessors with non-uniform memory hierarchies. We describe the implementation of SALSA, an operating system that incorporates these techniques and ...
