Abstract

This invention describes a method by which performance may be increased in a logical partitioned environment which uses address translation tokens as a protection mechanism between multiple partitions performing virtual I/O between them. The token to address translation can be cached by the client, which is notified by the address translation management code when the token to address translation is modified.
