Evaluation d'architectures parallèles à mémoire virtuelle partagée distribuée : étude et réalisation d'un émulateur

Abstract : This thesis has two main goals: the study and the implementation of an emulator of parallel computers with shared virtual memories. These two main objects have led this thesis to be divided in two distinct parts. The first part is a study of every technics that can be used to construct memories hierarchy, or that can be used to maintain data consistency in such memories. The second part describes the emulator. The objective of any emulator is to be enough convenient as possible. For this reason our emulator must include sufficient parameters to emulated the widest possible different types of parallel machines, while having a response delay not tremendously different regards to the one from a real execution. To meet this last requirement our emulator really executes all the instructions except the page exchanges across the interconnection network that are simulated. The parameters of the emulator are: number of processors, network's characteristics (e.g latency, bit rate), and consistency methods to describe the target machine; the data size and distribution to describe applications. Our emulator execute himself onto a MACH micro-kernel and a UNIX server. It use some functions of the MACH micro-kernel, specially external pager.
