NSF CSR-EHS: Memory management as a run-time service

Faculty 

Funding Agency 

National Science Foundation

Description 

This research is developing a SPM allocation strategy that is completely implemented inside a binary rewriter. This binary rewriter is called automatically by the operating system the first time the program is loaded to memory. Subsequent executions derive the benefits of SPM with no additional overhead. This approach makes SPM a run-time-provided resource for the first time, much like cache and virtual memory are, making it ubiquitous and transparent to the software toolchain.

CSR-EHS: Memory management as a run-time service is a four-year, $180K grant.
