Networks of workstations are characterized by dynamic resource capacities. Such environments can only be efficiently exploited by applications that are dynamically re-configurable. This paper explores mechanisms and policies that enable online reconfiguration of shared-memory applications through thread migration. We describe the design and preliminary performance of a DSM system that performs online re-mappings of threads to nodes based on sharing behavior. Our system obtains complete sharingdoi:10.21236/ada377024 fatcat:bwgstrudejbi5ideq7wepvokcy
