Compiler support for software prefetching
Due to the growing disparity between processor speed and main memory speed, techniques that improve cache utilization and hide memory latency are often needed to help applications achieve peak performance. Compiler-directed ...
Measurement-based admission control in integrated-services networks
To satisfy the quality of service requirements of real-time multimedia applications, networks must employ resource reservation and admission control. In this paper, we describe a new Measurement-Based Admission Control ...
Improving the speed vs. accuracy tradeoff for simulating shared-memory multiprocessors with ILP processors
Current simulators for shared-memory multiprocessor architectures involve a large tradeoff between simulation speed and accuracy. Most simulators assume much simpler processors than the current generation of processors ...
The design and implementation of a new network subsystem architecture for server systems
The explosive growth of the Internet, the widespread use of WWW-related applications, and the increased reliance on client-server architectures places interesting new demands on network servers. In particular, the operating ...
Efficient runtime support for cluster-based distributed shared memory multiprocessors
Distributed shared memory (DSM) systems provide a shared memory programming paradigm on top of a physically distributed network of computers. The DSM system removes the necessity for programmers to move data explicitly ...
