Title: Efficient, Strongly Consistent Implementations of Shared Memory (Extended Abstract)

Subject: Efficient, Strongly Consistent Implementations of Shared Memory (Extended Abstract)

Description: ) Marios Mavronicolas ? Dan Roth ?? Aiken Computation Laboratory, Harvard University, Cambridge, MA 02138, USA Abstract. We present linearizable implementations for two distributed organizations of multiprocessor shared memory. For the full caching organization, where each process keeps a local copy of the whole memory, we present a linearizable implementations of read/write memory objects that achieves essentially optimal efficiency and allows quantitative degradation of the less frequently employed operation. For the single ownership organization, where each memory object is "owned" by a single process which is most likely to access it frequently, our linearizable implementation allows local operations to be performed much faster (almost instantaneously) than remote ones. We suggest to combine these organizations in a "hybrid" memory structure that allows processes to access local and remote information in a transparent manner, while at a lower level of the memory consistency sys...
