Running OpenMP application efficiently on an everything-shared SDSM

Summary form only given. Traditional software distributed shared memory (SDSM) systems modify the semantics of a real hardware shared memory system by relaxing the coherence semantic and by limiting the memory regions that are actually shared. These semantic modifications are done to improve performance of the applications using it. We show that a SDSM system that behaves like a real shared memory system (without the afore mentioned relaxations) can also be used to execute OpenMP applications and achieve similar speedups as the ones obtained by traditional SDSM systems. This performance can be achieved by encouraging the cooperation between the SDSM and the OpenMP runtime instead of relaxing the semantics of the shared memory. In addition, techniques like boundaries alignment and page presend are demonstrated as very useful to overcome the limitations of the current SDSM systems.
