Gossip-based aggregation in large dynamic networks
Márk Jelasity, Alberto Montresor, Ozalp Babaoglu
Pages: 219-252
DOI: 10.1145/1082469.1082470
As computer networks increase in size, become more heterogeneous and span greater geographic distances, applications must be designed to cope with the very large scale, poor reliability, and often, with the extreme dynamism of the underlying network....

The STAMPede approach to thread-level speculation
J. Gregory Steffan, Christopher Colohan, Antonia Zhai, Todd C. Mowry
Pages: 253-300
DOI: 10.1145/1082469.1082471
Multithreaded processor architectures are becoming increasingly commonplace: many current and upcoming designs support chip multiprocessing, simultaneous multithreading, or both. While it is relatively straightforward to use these architectures to...

Shared memory computing on clusters with symmetric multiprocessors and system area networks
Leonidas Kontothanassis, Robert Stets, Galen Hunt, Umit Rencuzogullari, Gautam Altekar, Sandhya Dwarkadas, Michael L. Scott
Pages: 301-335
DOI: 10.1145/1082469.1082472
Cashmere is a software distributed shared memory (S-DSM) system designed for clusters of server-class machines. It is distinguished from most other S-DSM projects by (1) the effective use of fast user-level messaging, as provided by modern...
