Abstract

Disclosed is a distributed memory mapping scheme applicable to multiprocessor systems. The objective of the scheme is to achieve fast and efficient mapping operations in a multiprocessor environment in which memory contained in separate memory nodes is mapped in a common address space. The scheme is illustrated in figure 1. This figure shows a diagram of a multiprocessor system that contains two types of elements, processor nodes and memory nodes. 1 Figure 1: Distributed memory mapping scheme.
