This paper presents simulated results comparing representatives of two approaches to software DSM: an object-based protocol and a page-based protocol. We explore the performance implications of each approach, including the object approach's advantages in bandwidth consumption and lack of false sharing. Somewhat surprisingly, the locality and data aggregation advantages of page-based systems prove to be the dominant factors with typical operating system overheads. We show that large page sizesdoi:10.1109/ipps.1998.670001 dblp:conf/ipps/BuckK98 fatcat:irbnmtj56ffyhob24hqkd5eauu
