An Adaptive Cache Coherence Protocol Optimized for Migratory Sharing
Parallel programs that use critical sections and are executed on a shared-memory multiprocessor with a writeinvalidate protocol result in invalidation actions that could be elimin...

Performance Evaluation and Cost Analysis of Cache Protocol Extensions for Shared-Memory Multiprocessors
—We evaluate three extensions to directory-based cache coherence protocols in shared-memory multiprocessors. These extensions are aimed at reducing the penalties associated with ...

Using Prediction to Accelerate Coherence Protocols
Most large shared-memory multiprocessors use directory protocols to keep per-processor caches coherent. Some memory references in such systems, however, suffer long latencies for ...

Improving CC-NUMA Performance Using Instruction-Based Prediction
We propose Instruction-based Prediction as a means to optimize directory-based cache coherent NUMA shared-memory. Instruction-based prediction is based on observing the behavior o...

Improving support for locality and fine-grain sharing in chip multiprocessors
Both commercial and scientific workloads benefit from concurrency and exhibit data sharing across threads/processes. The resulting sharing patterns are often fine-grain, with t...
