Abstract

Presented is a methodology for reducing the number of cache lines, used by the fields composing a structure, that are accessed during application execution. This would in turn reduce the number of cache lines, and therefore the amount of data, transferred between processors when a process migrates. It also improves cache efficiency within the processor, which results in the performance improvement.
