Hosting an object heap on manycore hardware: an exploration
dynamic languages symposium, Volume 44, Issue 12, 2009, Pages 99-110.
In order to construct a test-bed for investigating new programming paradigms for future "manycore" systems (i.e. those with at least a thousand cores), we are building a Smalltalk virtual machine that attempts to efficiently use a collection of 56-on-chip caches of 64KB each to host a multi-megabyte object heap. In addition to the cost of...More
