Validation of the Rice Parallel Processing Testbed using sorting algorithms (Rice University, Texas)
The Rice Parallel Processing Testbed (RPPT) is software package for simulating the execution of parallel computers. The RPPT employs execution driven simulation to perform simulation efficiently. In this thesis, the ...
Analysis of TCP performance over ATM networks
ATM technology is expected to gain widespread use both in wide-area networks and in high-speed local area networks. The performance of the TCP/IP protocol suite over such networks is of great importance, as it is widely ...
Fine-grain producer-initiated communication in cache-coherent multiprocessors
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 ...
Improving data locality for caches
Since the introduction of cache memories in computer architecture, techniques to improve the data locality of programs with respect to cache have been essential to good performance. This thesis is a contribution in that ...
I/O-oriented applications on a software distributed-shared memory system
This thesis evaluates the use of a software distributed shared memory system, Treadmarks, as a platform for supporting an I/O-intensive application, specifically the database Postgres. Software distributed shared memory ...
Object-oriented implementation of p-adaptive finite element method
A finite element analysis methodology employing p-adaptivity is proposed. Object-oriented design and methodologies are used to implement the finite element package. The p-refinement phase is facilitated through the addition ...
