Another Trip to the Wall

Milan Radulovic, Darko Zivanovic, Daniel Ruiz, Bronis R. de Supinski, Sally A. McKee, Petar Radojković, Eduard Ayguadé
2015 Proceedings of the 2015 International Symposium on Memory Systems - MEMSYS '15  
First defined two decades ago, the memory wall remains a fundamental limitation to system performance.  ...  The first such products will soon hit the market, and some of the publicity claims that they will break through the memory wall.  ...  This change has no impact on memory latency, though: memory operation latencies are still limited by the DRAM technology.  ...

Data base processor technology

Donald R. Anderson
1976 Proceedings of the June 7-10, 1976, national computer conference and exposition on - AFIPS '76  
The premise of this concept is that simple operations that manipulate data base information can be included in a separate, simply structured processor that operates in parallel with the central system.  ...  The ability to achieve significant amounts of mass memory has not been matched with a capability for processing data stored within the mass memory.  ...  These are the modified operating system software structure, the definition and design of microprogrammed primitives, and user control of the primitive operations.  ...

A Compiled Memory Analysis Tool [chapter]

James Okolica, Gilbert Peterson
2010 IFIP Advances in Information and Communication Technology  
However, using a single tool to capture and analyze computer memory is more efficient and has less impact on the system state (potential evidence).  ...  The analysis of computer memory is becoming increasingly important in digital forensic investigations.  ...  The results show that performing a memory capture instead of a live response significantly reduces the impact on the evidence.  ...

Database engines on multicores scale

Joao Soares, Nuno Preguica
2015 Proceedings of the 30th Annual ACM Symposium on Applied Computing - SAC '15  
We focus on In-Memory DBMS since these are becoming widely adopted, due to the increasing amount of memory installed in today's systems, and are expected to scale on multicore machines, by not incurring  ...  This paper presents a practical study on In-Memory DBMS and shows that contention imposed by concurrency control mechanisms, such as locking, are limiting factors for both performance and scalability of  ...  We also investigated the performance impact of the different subcomponents of these systems, and concluded that contention on the underlying data structures are the main bottleneck for their lack of scalability  ...

SPeCK: a kernel for scalable predictability

Qi Wang, Yuxin Ren, Matt Scaperoth, Gabriel Parmer
2015 21st IEEE Real-Time and Embedded Technology and Applications Symposium  
Parallel systems require consistency guarantees on shared data-structures often provided by locks that use predictable resource sharing protocols.  ...  In this paper, we present a clean-slate design of the SPECK kernel, the next generation of our COMPOSITE OS, that attempts to provide a strong version of scalable predictability -where predictability bounds  ...  We evaluate the impact of each of the operations in Section VI-A on interrupt response time.  ...

TCP offload through connection handoff

Hyong-youb Kim, Scott Rixner
2006 ACM SIGOPS Operating Systems Review  
However, full TCP offloading may degrade system performance because finite processing and memory resources on the network interface limit the amount of packet processing and the number of connections.  ...  A prototype system based on the modified FreeBSD operating system shows that handoff reduces the number of instructions and cache misses on the host CPU.  ...  Acknowledgments The authors thank Alan L. Cox for his interest and comments on the paper.  ...
