Abstract

Although new thread placement approaches for asymmetric NUMA systems have recently emerged, it is perhaps surprising to observe that the standard techniques for page placement still rely on the obsolete assumption of a symmetric architecture. This paper proposes a novel approach, called Asymmetry-Aware Page Placement (AAPP), for near-optimal placement of shared pages in asymmetric NUMA systems. Given a memory-intensive application clustered on a set of nodes, AAPP builds an approximated model of the potential throughput of the application and calculates a target near-optimal weight distribution to be adopted when interleaving shared pages.
