Supporting Software Distributed Shared Memory with an Optimizing Compiler
To execute a shared memory program efficiently, we have to manage memory consistency with low overheads, and have to utilize communication bandwidth of the platform as much as possible. A software distributed shared memory (DSM) can solve these problems via proper support by an optimizing compiler. The optimizing compiler can detect shared write operations, using interprocedural pointsto analysis. It also coalesces shared write commitments onto contiguous regions, and removes redundant write commitments, using interprocedural redundancy elimination. A page-based target software DSM system can utilize communication bandwidth, owing to coalescing optimization. We have implemented the above optimizing compiler and a runtime software DSM on AP1000+. We have obtained a high speed-up ratio with the SPLASH-2 benchmark suite. The result shows that using an optimizing compiler to assist a software DSM is a promising approach to obtain a good performance. It also shows that the appropriate prot...
