Scheduler-conscious synchronization
Leonidas I. Kontothanassis, Robert W. Wisniewski, Michael L. Scott
Pages: 3-40
DOI: 10.1145/244764.244765
Efficient synchronization is important for achieving good performance in parallel programs, especially on large-scale multiprocessors. Most synchronization algorithms have been designed to run on a dedicated machine, with one application process...

Disk-directed I/O for MIMD multiprocessors
David Kotz
Pages: 41-74
DOI: 10.1145/244764.244766
Many scientific applications that run on today's multiprocessors, such as weather forecasting and seismic analysis, are bottlenecked by their file-I/O needs. Even if the multiprocessor is configured with sufficient I/O hardware, the file system...

A high-speed network interface for distributed-memory systems: architecture and applications
Peter Steenkiste
Pages: 75-109
DOI: 10.1145/244764.244767
Distributed-memory systems have traditionally had great difficulty performing network I/O at rates proportional to their computational power. The problem is that the network interface has to support network I/O for a supercomputer, using...
