Bernard Cole-October 21, 2012

In “Heap data management in limited local memory multi-core processors,” Ke Bai and Aviral Shrivastava in the Compiler Microarchitecture Lab at Arizona State University describe a scheme they developed to manage heap data in the local memory present in each core of a limited local memory (LLM) multi-core processor.

They use a semi-automatic and scalable scheme for heap data management that hides complexity in a library with a natural programming interface as well as optimizations on the heap management to significantly improve the application performance, on average by as much as 14 percent.
