Synchronization, coherence, and consistency for high performance shared memory multiprocessing
Although improved device technology has increased the performance of computer systems, fundamental hardware limitations and the need to build faster systems using existing technology have led many computer system designers ...
Efficient simulation of interconnection networks
This thesis presents a modular, general-purpose interconnection network simulator called NETSIM developed as an extension to YACSIM, a C-language based process-oriented discrete event simulator. NETSIM is capable of ...
Analytical performance prediction of parallel systems
The need for more computing power for many computer applications has increased beyond the capabilities of traditional von Neumann architectures. This has generated interest in using parallel computers to improve processing ...
Performance of multicomputers using high-speed communication links
This thesis presents the results of a simulation study of the performance of a message-passing multicomputer using high-speed point-to-point communication links. The multicomputer system consists of IBM RS/6000 machines ...
