Abstract

It is known that the larger the DLAT (Directory Look-Aside Table), the less frequent the need to translate a virtual address through a translation mechanism, hence, higher system performance. But designing such a DLAT will make the cost/performance unattractive, because more high speed array chips and more cooling are required.
