Efficient Address Mapping of Shared Cache for On-Chip Many-Core Architecture
Abstract. Performance of the on-chip cache is critical for processor. The multithread program model usually employed by on-chip many-core architectures may have effects on cache access patterns and eventually on cache conflict miss behaviors. However, the behavior of cache is still unclear, and little has been known of the effectiveness of XOR mapping scheme for many-core systems. In this paper we focus on these problems. We propose an XOR-based address mapping scheme for on-chip many core architecture to increase performance of cache system. Then we evaluate the proposed scheme for various applications, including an application for bioinformatics, matrix multiplication, LU decomposition, FFT from Splash2 benchmarks. Experimental results show that with the proposed scheme, it makes conflict misses of shared cache reduced by about 53% on average, and makes overall performance improved by about 6%. Experimental results also show that the XOR scheme is more cost effectively than victim ca...
