Reliability and scalability are major concerns when designing operating systems for large-scale shared-memory multiprocessors. In this paper we describe Hive, an operating system with a novel kernel architecture that addresses these issues Hive is structured as an internal distributed system of independent kernels called cells. This improves reliabihty because a hardwme or software fault damages only one cell rather than the whole system, and improves scalability because few kernel resources
more &raquo; ... shared by processes running on different cells. The Hive prototype is a complete implementation of UNIX SVR4 and is targeted to run on the Stanford FLASH multiprocessor. This paper focuses on Hive's solutlon to the following key challenges: ( 1) fault containment, i.e. confining the effects of hardware or software faults to the cell where they occur, and (2) memory sharing among cells, which is requmed to achieve
