Triangular solution of linear systems in tensor product format
Fernandes P., Plateau B. ACM SIGMETRICS Performance Evaluation Review 28(4): 30-32, 2001. Type: Article
A solution method for a linear system with its matrix formed as the tensor product of several matrices is presented. The algorithm works with the LU decompositions of the small matrices in the tensor product, resulting in a very efficient...

Use of application characteristics and limited preemption for run-to-completion parallel processor scheduling policies
Chiang S., Mansharamani R., Vernon M. ACM SIGMETRICS Performance Evaluation Review 22(1): 33-44, 1994. Type: Article
The performance of non-preemptive scheduling policies in multiprogrammed parallel processing systems is investigated. A large body of literature in this field already exists. Through discrete event simulation, the authors provide some...

The expected lifetime of “single-address-space” operating systems
Kotz D., Crow P. ACM SIGMETRICS Performance Evaluation Review 22(1): 161-170, 1994. Type: Article
Kotz and Crow address the issue of whether a 64-bit address-space machine’s addresses need to be reused. Results of traces collected by monitoring UNIX machines in an academic environment are presented. The authors begin by showing that the ...

A multi-level solution algorithm for steady-state Markov chains
Horton G., Leutenegger S. ACM SIGMETRICS Performance Evaluation Review 22(1): 191-200, 1994. Type: Article
A multilevel method for steady-state Markov chain problems is presented along with detailed experimental evidence to demonstrate its utility. The key elements of multilevel methods (smoothing, coarsening, restriction, and interpolation) are...

Cache inclusion and processor sampling in multiprocessor simulations
Chame J., Dubois M. ACM SIGMETRICS Performance Evaluation Review 21(1): 36-47, 1993. Type: Article
In a multiprocessor system consisting of a large number of processors, each of which has a private cache memory, critical design problems are the cache architecture and the cache coherence protocols. Trace-driven simulation is a common method of...

Effectiveness of trace sampling for performance debugging tools
Martonosi M., Gupta A., Anderson T. ACM SIGMETRICS Performance Evaluation Review 21(1): 248-259, 1993. Type: Article
Cache simulation tools can provide valuable information for use in tuning applications for better memory performance. The overhead of a complete cache simulation can be substantial enough to inhibit its frequent use, however....
