Page-based software DSM systems suffer from false sharing caused by the large sharing granularity, and only support one-dimension Block or Cyclicblock data distribution schemes. Thus applications running on them will suffer from poor data locality and will be able to exploit parallelism only when using a large number of processors. In this paper, a way towards supporting flexible data distribution (FDD) on software DSM system is presented. Small granularity-tunable blocks, the size of which can be set by …
