• Architectural Mechanisms for Explicit Communication in Shared Memory Multiprocessors 

      Ramachandran, Umakishore; Shah, Gautam H.; Sivasubramaniam, Anand; Singla, Aman; Yanasak, Ivan (Georgia Institute of Technology, 1994)
      The goal of this work is to explore architectural mechanisms for supporting explicit communication in cache-coherent shared memory multiprocessors. The motivation stems from the observation that applications display ...
    • The Quest for a Zero Overhead Shared Memory Parallel Machine 

      Shah, Gautam H.; Singla, Aman; Ramachandran, Umakishore (Georgia Institute of Technology, 1995)
      In this paper we present a new approach to benchmark the performance of shared memory systems. This approach focuses on recognizing how far off is the performance of a given memory system from a realistic ideal parallel ...
    • Scalability Study of the KSR-1 

      Ramachandran, Umakishore; Shah, Gautam H.; Ravikumar, S.; Muthukumarasamy, Jeyakumar (Georgia Institute of Technology, 1993)
      Scalability of parallel architectures is an interesting area of current research. Shared memory parallel programming is attractive stemming from its relative ease in transitioning from sequential programming. However, ...
    • Timepatch: A Novel Technique for the Parallel Simulation of Multiprocessor Caches 

      Shah, Gautam H.; Ramachandran, Umakishore; Fujimoto, Richard M. (Georgia Institute of Technology, 1994)
      We present a new technique for the parallel simulation of cache coherent shared memory multiprocessors. Our technique is based on the fact that the functional correctness of the simulation can be decoupled from its ...
