Implementing Multithreaded Protocols for Release Consistency on Top of the Generic DSM-PM2 Platform

Abstract : DSM-PM2 is an implementation platform designed to facilitate the experimental studies with consistency protocoles for distributed shared memory. This platform provides basic building blocks, allowing for an easy design, implementation and evaluation of a large variety of multithreaded consistency protocols within a unified framework. DSM-PM2 is portable over a large variety of cluster architectures, using various communication interfaces (TCP, MPI, BIP, SCI, VIA, etc.). This paper presents the design of two multithreaded protocols implementing the release consistency model. We evaluate the impact of these consistency protocols on the overall performance of a typical distributed application, for two clusters with different interconnection networks and communication interfaces.
