Bachelor's Thesis

Dynamic Management of Shared Virtual Memory for Multi-Processing on Linux

Due to the rising amount of cores per processor, multiprocessing gets more and more attractive. The most efficient kind of inter-process communication is shared memory. But existing mechanisms to manage shared memory are somewhat uncomfortable compared to dynamic memory management on heap and increase complexity in programming. Mission of this bachelor's thesis is to develop a system-wide management of shared memory especially designed for multiprocessing on Linux, which allows the adaption of a common dynamic memory management algorithm (such as Douglas Lea's allocator).
