Abstract

Two types of software distributed shared memory systems are studied using layered framework. For the two system layers, the performance costs of basic operations in the layers rather than on their functionalities is observed. This is possible because their functionalities are fairly mature. The less mature applications layer is treated through application restructuring. The layers individually and in combination, understanding their implications for the two types of protocols and exposing the synergies among layers are examined.
