    Abstract

    In recent years, software managed cache systems are becoming widely used on parallel computing environments, because of its portability and applicability. However, cache managing costs on those systems arc higher than hardware managed cache systems. Therefore, we estimate the cache managing cost of the cache system we have implemented on distributed shared memory system. As a coherence protocol, programmers of our system can select invalidating or updating. We estimate the cache mazlaging costs for both protocols. As an example program, we use two application to evaluate our system, Gaussian elimination and sum total calculation. From the result, we can conclude that the cost of cache information management cannot be ignored for estimating software managed cache system.
