Abstract [en]

Multi-core computers are infamous for being hard to use in time-critical systems due to execution-time variations as an effect of shared resource contention. In this thesis we study the problem of shared resource contention which occurs when multiple applications executing on different cores do not have exclusive ownership of a shared resource. We investigate performance variations of parallel tasks in multi-core systems and present a method to pinpoint the source of the resource contention using existing hardware performance counters. Furthermore, we investigate methods to mitigate performance variations using resource isolation techniques. We present a methodology for verifying isolation and tested the achieved isolation using the Jailhouse hypervisor. We further investigate shared cache memory isolation techniques using a page coloring tool called PALLOC. Page-coloring is used for partitioning the cache, assigning specific cache lines to specific processes. Page coloring can however cause system performance degradation since it decreases the total amount of cache memory available for each process. Finally, we propose a dynamic partitioning assignment policy which assigns cache partitions to a process according to an adaptive model based on the process performance. The general conclusion from our investigations is that a large body of applications can suffer from shared resource contention and that techniques for mitigating resource contention are in dire need. Our methods measure and characterise applications, identifies resource contention and finally study isolation techniques.
