Abstract
Thanks to programming approaches like actor-based models, message passing is regaining popularity outside large-scale scientific computing for building scalable distributed applications in multi-core processors. Unfortunately, the mismatch between message passing models and today’s shared-memory hardware provided by commercial vendors results in suboptimal performance and a waste of energy. This paper presents a set of architectural extensions to reduce the overheads incurred by message passin...
