Title: Cache-based Cross-iteration Coherence For Speculative Parallelization

Abstract: Maximal utilization of cores in multicore architectures is key to realize the potential performance available from higher density devices. In order to achieve scalable performance, parallelization techniques rely on carefully tunning speculative architecture support, run-time environment and software-based transformations. Hardware and software mechanisms have already been proposed to address this problem. They either require deep (and risky) changes on the existing hardware and cache coherence protocols, or exhibit poor performance scalability for a range of applications. The addition of cache tags as an enabler for data versioning, recently announced by the industry (i.e. IBM BlueGene/Q), could allow a better exploitation of parallelism at the microarchitecture level. In this paper, we present an execution model that supports both DOPIPE-based speculation and traditional speculative parallelization techniques. It is based on a simple cache tagging approach for data versioning, which integrates smoothly with typical cache coherence protocols, not requiring any changes to them. Experimental results, using SPEC and PARSEC benchmarks, reveal substantial speedups in a 24-core simulated CMP, while demonstrate improved scalability when compared to a software-only approach. © 2013 IEEE.
