Certainly, M1 and M2 will appear to an engineer to be distinct machines. The interesting question is whether or not M1 and M2 will appear to be distinct machines to a programmer. Let us make this thought more precise.

Let P be a program and D a set of input data, and let R be one possible result when P is run with D on M1. If for all such R, R can also be calculated by P running with D on M2, then write M1 => M2. M1 => M2 means that the set of possible outputs from running P with D on M1 is contained in the set of possible outputs from running P with D on M2. (Due to nondeterminism there may be more than one possible result from running P with D.)

If for all possible programs P and input data D it is the case that M1 => M2 and M2 => M1, then write M1 <=> M2 and say that M1 and M2 are indistinguishable.

Suppose M1 and M2 are distinguishable. Then M1 and M2 differ in their behavior and that difference is visible to at least one program operating on at least on set of input data. So now the interesting questions become:

What differences in behavior can programs detect?

What programs can detect those differences?

ARCHTEST is a program to test a shared memory multiprocessor (SMMP) to determine how it behaves in accessing shared data. ARCHTEST incorporates all such tests as are presently known. The following is a description of these tests and an explanation of how they detect relaxed behavior.

The computation rules describe how processes interact to calculate terminal values of operands from a given set of initial values of the operands.

The uniprocessor order rules define the ordering rules that a uniprocessor follows.

Program order, and its subsidiary rules, define rules of order based on the order of read and write operations in a program.

The rule of write atomicity requires that each write operation be instantaneously visible throughout a system.

The strongest architecture is sequential consistency (SC). An SC machine obeys the rules of program order and write atomicity. None of the tests in ARCHTEST will detect relaxed behavior on an SC machine. If a machine provides a relaxed memory model, then many of the twelve tests below should detect that fact.

A failure to obey one of the rules of computation might look like this:

Initially, A = 0. P1 L0: A = 1; Terminally, A = 13.Operand A is initially zero. Then it is set to one. But at the end of the execution it has the value 13. Clearly, the machine on which the execution occurred did not compute in the way one normally expects a machine to behave.

The Compute-Write-Read Rule (CWR)

Initially, A = X = 0. P1 P2 L0: A = 1; L0: X = A; Terminally, A = X = 1.If X = 1 at the end of the execution, then it must be that the write event in process P1 occurred before the read event in process P2. Represent this by

(P1,L0,W,1,A,S2) <cwr (P2,L0,R,1,A,S2)to show that statement L0 in process P1 wrote a 1 into operand A in S2 (S2 is P2's view of storage) before statement L0 in process P2 read a 1 value from operand A in S2.

The Compute-Read-Write Rule (CRW)

Initially, A = X = 0. P1 P2 L0: A = 1; L0: X = A;If X = 0 at the end of the execution, then it must be that the read event in process P2 occurred before the write event in process P1. Represent this by

(P2,L0,R,0,A,S2) <crw (P1,L0,W,1,A,S2)to show that statement L0 in process P2 read a 0 from operand A in S2 before statement L0 in process P1 wrote a 1 value into operand A in S2.

The Compute-Write-Write Rule (CWW)

Initially, A = 0. P1 P2 L0: A = 1; L0: A = 2;If A = 2 (in both S1 and S2, that is, in both P1's and P2's view of storage) after this program has executed, then it must be that the write events in process P1 (for both S1 and S2) occurred before the write events in process P2. Represent this by

(P1,L0,W,1,A,S1) <cww (P2,L0,W,2,A,S1) (P1,L0,W,1,A,S2) <cww (P2,L0,W,2,A,S2)to show that statement L0 in process P1 wrote a 1 into operand A in S1 and in S2 before statement L0 in process P2 wrote a 2 into operand A in S1 and in S2, respectively.

The Statement-Read-Write Rule (SRW) It is convenient to define another rule as one of the rules of computation. Write

(P1,L0,R,0,B,S1) <srw (P1,L0,W,0,A,S1)to show that in

P1 L0: A = B;the read event(s) in a statement occur before the write events.

X = 1; X = 1; Y = X; Y = X; X = 2; X = 1;Thus for this fragment

Pi X = 1; X = 2;we would have

(Pi,-,W,1,X,Si) <upo (Pi,-,W,2,X,Si)but UPO would not mean that (Pi,-,W,1,X,Si) would necessarily occur before any of the other write events in the second statement.

The necessity of this behavior is so obvious that UPO is treated like CMP as being part of the rules that all machines, even multiprocessors, automatically obey.

There is one case which is not so clear cut. If two fetches from the same operand are made, will they always occur in order? This seems to me to be a reasonable assumption, but others may not agree.

Y = X; Z = X;I have chosen to give this rule and the associated relation special names, URR and <urr, respectively.

If a machine obeys RR, and if a first read operation on shared data logically occurs in a program before a second read operation on shared data, then the first read operation is executed before the second read operation.

Write-Write Order (WW)

If a machine obeys WW, and if a first write operation on shared data logically occurs in a program before a second write operation on shared data, then the first write operation is executed before the second write operation.

Write-Read Order (WR)

If a machine obeys WR, and if a write operation on shared data logically occurs in a program before a read operation on shared data, then the write operation is executed before the read operation.

Read-Write Order (RW)

If a machine obeys RW, and if a read operation on shared data logically occurs in a program before a write operation on shared data, then the read operation is executed before the write operation.

Program Order (PO)

A machine obeys PO if and only if it obeys RR, WW, RW, and WR.

The WR and RW rules are adopted from [adgh96].

CC1

All threads see each operand change value at exactly the same instant. CC1 is also called write atomicity (WA).

CC2

All threads see exactly the same sequence of changes of values for all operands. CC2 is also called write synchronization.

CC3

All threads see exactly the same sequence of changes of values for each separate operand.

CC4

Different threads may see an operand assume different sequences of values.

Suppose a system obeys CC1, and let w1 and w2 be any two write events in the same statement. If it is known that event x happens before w1, say, then, due to the write atomicity of the system, it must be that x happens before w2. Symbolically, if x <hb w1, then x <hb w2. This is inconvenient to write when one is trying to establish the existence of a circuit. A more economical notation is to write x <hb w1 =cc1 w2 to show that x occurs before w1 which occurs at the same time as w2.

No program can distinguish between CC1 and CC2 machines [coll92].

However, programs can distinguish between machines obeying all of the other rules of cache coherence.

A model can represent a write operation either as a single event or as multiple events. In the first case the event represents the instant in time at which the result of the write operation becomes visible to all processes in the system. Such a model is inherently write atomic. An alternative is to represent a write operation as a set of events, with each event in the set representing the instant in time at which the result of the write operation becomes visible to an individual process. This is the function of the sixth component of each event, Si.

Specifically, each process Pi is considered to have a view of storage Si distinct from the view of all other processes. In particular, each process can see an operand change value at a different time. If process P1 writes into operand X in a 4-way system, there will be four write events, one for each store, S1, S2, S3, and S4. (A read by process Pi is always from store Si). For Tests 1-4 and 11, where write atomicity is assumed, the sixth component of each event can be ignored.

Analysis of some of the tests is quite involved. To keep explanations as simple as possible only specific examples, rather than general cases, are analyzed.

Analyzing the test results occurs in two sections. Cases sought in the first section are labelled x.0 in contrast to the cases sought in the second section which are labelled x.1, x.2, ....

In the first section various subsets of the operands in the arrays are checked to see if they are monotonically increasing. If not, then the fundamental rules of CMP and UPO have been violated. To date (January 2005) no machine has been seen to fail any part of the analysis in the first section. Since no such failures have been seen, ARCHTEST does not print out the results for this section.

The second section of the analysis is the significant part. These are the relaxations the tests are nominally about.

For each type of test a numeric value is defined, denoted d, for each entry in each array. A d value represents the difference betweeen an observed value of an operand and the smallest value the operand could have had without indicating relaxed behavior on the part of the SMMP. Negative values of d indicate relaxed behavior; the further from zero, the more relaxed is the behavior of the SMMP. Nonnegative values of d indicate strong behavior. If the goal of an SMMP is to be strong, then positive values represent instances of acceptable, but less than optimal behavior, while zero values represent ideal behavior. The d values for each test are plotted in a histogram in the output for each test. (For more on interpreting the output from each test, see the file called HOWTORUN.

Therefore, if a machine is seen to violate A(CMP,UPO,X), it is certain that the machine relaxes rule X. Call such a test pure, and the other tests mixed.

If a machine obeys A(CMP,UPO,X), but violates A(CMP,UPO,X,Y), then a commonsense deduction is that the machine relaxes rule Y. The reality is that the machine might relax rule X, but the relaxation becomes visible only in the environment for the second test. It is important to keep this in mind when interpreting the results of the tests.

Once redundancies are eliminated, here are the relaxations sought by the tests. The relaxations are shown on the left; the tests dectecting the relaxations are shown on the right.

If the machine passes the pure test for WW, then there is one mixed test for RR and three for WR.

Some of the tests can be adapted and extended at the assembly language level to create pure tests. Suppose the machine fails test T2, indicating that it relaxes either RR, or WW, or both. Rewrite T2 in assembler language and insert read barrier instructions to obtain a pure test of WW. Similarly with write barrier instructions to obtain a pure test of RR. (And with both read and write barrier instructions to obtain a test of the barrier instructions themselves.)

Initially, (A,X) = (0,0). P1 P2 L1: X = A; L1: A = 1; L2: A = 2; L2: A = 3; Terminally, (A,X) = (3,1).Obviously,

(P2,L1,W,1,A,S1) <cwr (P1,L1,R,1,A,S1)However, it is not necessarily true that

(P1,L1,R,1,A,S1) <crw (P2,L2,W,2,A,S1)since some or all of the write events in (P2,L2) could come before some or all of the write events in (P2,L1). (The purpose of setting A to 3 was to conceal whether or not this occurred.)

The purpose of this note is to show that if the execution obeys either WW, CC1, or CC3, then it is true that

(P1,L1,R,1,A,S1) <crw (P2,L2,W,2,A,S1)Assume the execution obeys WW. Since UPO is obeyed by all machines, it must be that

(P2,L1,W,1,A,S2) <upo (P2,L2,W,2,A,S2)Since the execution obeys WW, it must be that

(P2,L1,W,1,A,Si) <ww (P2,L2,W,2,A,Sj), for i,j in {1,2}In particular,

(P2,L1,W,1,A,S1) <ww (P2,L2,W,2,A,S1)Then to avoid a circuit and to obey CMP, it must be that

(P2,L1,W,1,A,S1) <cwr (P1,L1,R,1,A,S1) <crw (P2,L2,W,2,A,S1)Assume the execution obeys CC1. Then it must be that

(P2,L1,W,1,A,Si) <cc1 (P2,L2,W,2,A,Sj), for i,j in {1,2}which suffices to establish the same argument as for WW.

Assume the execution obeys CC3. Then it must be that

(P2,L1,W,1,A,Si) <cc3 (P2,L2,W,2,A,Si), for i in {1,2}which suffices to establish the same argument as for WW.

This reasoning will be referred to at various places in the analysis of the following tests by the phrases "<crw by WW", "<crw by CC1", or "<crw by CC3".

There are two important cases in which one test may provide evidence that the machine relaxed two or more architectures. First, the data may be interpreted in more than one way. Second, different rules may be used to accomplish the same analysis, that is, to prove that a given set of data imply the existence of a circuit of events in time.

As described earlier, all test results (except for T1) are analyzed in at least two ways. The x.0 cases examine the data in the arrays for monotonicity. The x.1, x.2, ..., cases examine the data for more interesting relaxations. Sometimes the different cases detect distinct relaxations; sometimes not.

The are two major ways in which different rules may be substituted and still accomplish the same analysis.

In this code fragment

P1 L1: U = V; L2: X = Y;it is possible to assume either RW or WW to argue that one or the other of the following is true:

(P1,L1,R,-,V,Px) <rw (P1,L2,W,-X,Sy) (P1,L1,R,-,V,Px) <srw (P1,L1,W,-U,Sy) <ww (P1,L2,W,-X,Sy)This observation is used with tests T4, T7, T8, T11, and T12.

In tests T1, T4, and T11 the rules WW, CC1, and CC3 do not occur except for the purpose of justifying the <crw link. If the analysis uses WW, say, to show a circuit exists, then the same analysis, slightly modified, can be used with CC3 replacing WW. (CC1 could also be used, of course, but there is no point in using the stronger rule when the weaker rule suffices.) Thus, the tests will show that either neither or both of the two architectures were relaxed.

To summarize, six tests (shown below) can detect the relaxation of more than one architecture. 'and' indicates a modification of the analysis suffices. 'or' (inclusive) shows where separate analyses of the data are required.

Test T1. (URR,WW) and (URR,CC3) Test T4, T11. ((WW,WR) and (WR,CC3)) or ((WW) and (RW)) Test T7, T12. (RR,CC1) or ((WW) and (RW)) Test T8. ((CC3) and (WW,WR)) or ((CC3) and (WW) and (RW))

Initially, A = U[i] = 0, i = 0 to K. P1 P2 L0: A = 0; L0: U[0] = A; L1: A = 1; L1: U[1] = A; L2: A = 2; L2: U[2] = A; L3: A = 3; L3: U[3] = A; L4: A = 4; L4: U[4] = A; L5: A = 5; L5: U[5] = A; L6: A = 6; L6: U[6] = A; L7: A = 7; L7: U[7] = A; etc. Seek 1.0. U[i] > U[i+1]. d = U[i+1] - U[i].

After P1 and P2 finish, ARCHTEST performs tests for one case in the data in the U vector.

Example of Case 1.0.If U[2] = 4 > U[3] = 3, then the following circuit exists.P1 P2 L3: A = 3; L2: U[2] = A; L4: A = 4; L3: U[3] = A;

(P2,L2,R,4,A,S2) <urr (P2,L3,R,3,A,S2) <crw (P1,L4,W,4,A,S2) (<crw by WW or CC3) <cwr (P2,L2,R,4,A,S2)

The existence of the circuit shows that the machine failed to obey both A(CMP,UPO,URR,WW) and A(CMP,UPO,URR,CC3).

A slight variation on the above example is possible.

If U[2] = 5 > U[3] = 3, then the following circuit exists.

(P2,L2,R,5,A,S2) <urr (P2,L3,R,3,A,S2) <crw (P1,L4,W,4,A,S2) (<crw by WW or CC3) <xx (P1,L5,W,5,A,S2) (<xx = <ww or <cc3) <cwr (P2,L2,R,5,A,S2)Test T120 is identical to Test T100, except that A is a floating point operand.

After P1 and P2 finish, ARCHTEST performs tests for three distinct conditions in the data in the U and V vectors.## Test T200. Seek a relaxation of A(CMP,UPO,RR,WW).

If U[2] = 4 > U[3] = 3, then the following circuit exists.

(P1,L6,W,6,A,S2) <cww (P6,L3,W,3,A,S2)Similarly, it can be shown that

(P6,L4,W,4,B,S3) <cww (P1,L5,W,5,B,S3)But then this circuit must exist:

(P2,L50,W,5,B,S1) <wr (P2,L51,R,2,A,S2)If the machine obeyed the rule of WR, then in process P2 all write events in statement L50 occurred before all read events in statement L51.

(P1,L30,W,3,A,S2) <wr (P1,L31,R,4,B,S1)As above.

The existence of the circuit shows that the machine failed to obey A(CMP,UPO,WW,WR) and A(CMP,UPO,WR,CC3).

(P2,L31,R,6,A,S2) <rw (P2,L40,W,4,B,S1)If the machine obeyed the rule of RW, then in process P2 all read events in statement L31 occurred before any write event in statement L40.

(P2,L40,W,4,B,S1) <cwr (P1,L51,R,4,B,S1)As above.

(P1,L51,R,4,B,S1) <rw (P1,L60,W,6,A,S2)As above.

The existence of the circuit shows that the machine failed to obey A(CMP,UPO,RW).

The data also shows the following additional circuit exists:

(P1,L60,W,6,A,S2) <cwr (P2,L31,R,6,A,S2) <srw (P2,L31,W,6,A,S1) <ww (P2,L40,W,4,B,S1) <cwr (P1,L51,R,4,B,S1) <srw (P1,L51,W,4,A,S2) <ww (P1,L60,W,6,A,S2)and so the machine could not have obeyed A(CMP,UPO,WW).

Similarly for Cases 4.2 and 4.4.

Test T410 is identical to Test T400, except that B is a floating point operand while A is still a fixed point operand.

P1 P2 P3 L3: A = 3; L4: A = 4; Lx: B = A; L20: U[2] = B; L21: V[2] = A;If U[2] = 4 > V[2] = 3, then the following circuit exists. (The line Lx of P2 which copied A into B is indeterminate.)

(P1,L4,W,4,A,S2) <cwr (P2,Lx, R,4,A,S2)After statement L4 of P1 wrote a value of 4, some statement, Lx, of P2 read the value.

(P2,Lx,R,4,A,S2) <srw (P2,Lx, W,4,B,S3)Each statement is composed of read events, which come first in time, and write events, which come later. After the read event for Lx came the write events for Lx.

(P2,Lx,W,4,B,S3) <cwr (P3,L20,R,4,B,S3)For statement L20 to see a value of 4 in B, statement Lx in P2 must first have written a value of 4 in B.

(P3,L20,R,4,B,S3) <rr (P3,L21,R,3,A,S3)By the rule of read order the read event in statement L20 occurred before the read event in statement L21.

(P1,L4,W,4,A,S3) =cc1 (P1,L4, W,4,A,S2)By the rule of write atomicity the write into A in S3 occurred at the same time as the write into A in S2.

The existence of the circuit shows that the machine failed to obey A(CMP,UPO,RR,CC1).

If the machine is known to obey RR, then it must have violated CC1. Then the path

(P1,L4,W,4,A,S2) <cwr (P2,Lx, R,4,A,S2) <srw (P2,Lx, W,4,B,S3) <cwr (P3,L20,R,4,B,S3) <rr (P3,L21,R,3,A,S3)shows that the machine makes stale data visible.

In general, if a machine fails a test for CC1, and if the machine is known to obey all of the other rules used in constructing the circuit, and if the circuit demonstrating the failure has only one occurrence of <cc1, then the circuit demonstrates that the machine makes stale data visible. Currently, Test T5 is the only test capable of demonstrating the existence of stale data on a machine (and then only if the machine is known to obey RR.

Test T510 is identical to Test T500, except that B is a floating point operand while A is still a fixed point operand.

Test T520 is identical to Test T500, except that both A and B are floating point operands.

If the data in the arrays for Test T6 is saved in a file, the data can later be viewed with the program T6PLOT.

From A in L8330 to A in L8430 (by WW), to A in L8431 (by UPO), to B in L8432 (by RR), to B in L5020 (by CRW), to B in L5021 (by UPO), to A in L5022 (by RR), to A in L8330 (by CRW).Other, secondary arcs, are:

From A in L8320 to A in L8330 (by WW). From A in L8320 to A in L5022 (by CWR). From B in L5010 to B in L5020 (by WW). From B in L5010 to B in L8432 (by CWR).Two possibilities exist: either P1 failed to be CC1, or P2 failed to be CC1. Consider the first possibility.

P1 P2 L8320: A = 832; L8322: U[832] = B; (= 500) L8330: A = 833; L8332: U[833] = B; (= 500) L8340: A = 834; L8342: U[834] = B; (= 500) L8350: A = 835; L8352: U[835] = B; (= 500) L8360: A = 836; L8362: U[836] = B; (= 500) L8370: A = 837; L8372: U[837] = B; (= 500) L8380: A = 838; L8382: U[838] = B; (= 500) L8390: A = 839; L5010: B = 501; L5012: V[501] = A; (= 828) L8392: U[839] = B; (= 501) L8400: A = 840; L8402: U[840] = B; (= 501) L8410: A = 841; L8412: U[841] = B; (= 501) L8420: A = 842; L8422: U[842] = B; (= 501) L8430: A = 843; L8431: - = A; L8432: U[843] = B; (= 501) L5020: B = 502; L5021: - = B; L5022: V[502] = A; (= 832)P1 went through its loop eleven times before P2 saw the new value of A. This is the source of the d = 11 value. It gives a rough indication of the amount of time by which a value is delayed in propagating to another processor.

P1 P2 L8320: A = 832; L8322: U[832] = B; (= 500) L5010: B = 501; L5012: V[501] = A; (= 828) L5020: B = 502; L5021: - = B; L5022: V[502] = A; (= 832) L8330: A = 833; L8332: U[833] = B; (= 500) L8340: A = 834; L8342: U[834] = B; (= 500) L8350: A = 835; L8352: U[835] = B; (= 500) L8360: A = 836; L8362: U[836] = B; (= 500) L8370: A = 837; L8372: U[837] = B; (= 500) L8380: A = 838; L8382: U[838] = B; (= 500) L8390: A = 839; L8392: U[839] = B; (= 501) L8400: A = 840; L8402: U[840] = B; (= 501) L8410: A = 841; L8412: U[841] = B; (= 501) L8420: A = 842; L8422: U[842] = B; (= 501) L8430: A = 843; L8431: - = A; L8432: U[843] = B; (= 501)In this sequence P2 set B to 500, then to 501, then to 502. Subsequent to P2 setting B to 502, P1 fetched the value of B eleven times before it saw B take on the value 502. Six times it saw a value of 500 and five times it saw a value of 501. It is interesting to speculate on how P1 could receive an invalidate for B from P2 and then to refetch B, only to receive an already outdated value (501) instead of the current value (502).

To aid in the reconstruction of such sequences additional information is printed out following the initial diagnostic statement. Specifically, after the line:

U[843] = 501 < 502 and V[502] = 832 < 843.there appear these lines:

b=1 c=1 u[ 832]: 500 500 500 500 500 500 501 501 501 501 501This displays the eleven values visible in the detected relaxation, starting at u[832]. Two other numbers are displayed. The b ("badest") value shows the difference between the last and the first of the eleven numbers. The c ("copies") value shows the number of changes in values seen in the eleven numbers. The values of b and c have been seen to range up to 3 or 4.

The same analysis applied to the results of running Test T1200 also show details on nonatomic events. On Tests T400 and T1100 the same analysis shows details on out of order execution.

Test T710 is identical to Test T700, except that B is a floating point operand while A is still a fixed point operand.

Test T720 is identical to Test T700, except that both A and B are floating point operands.

There are two different forms of circuit that can be seen in the data coming from Test T8 when run on a machine which relaxes the rule of CC3. The easiest way to understand them is to work through examples.

Assume these values exist in array W after running the above code.

W[3,1] = 42 < 52 (52 determines the subscripts in W[5,2], etc.) W[5,2] = 23 < 33 W[3,3] = 54 < 64 W[6,4] = 21 < 31 P1 P2 P3 P4 L21: A = 21; L41: A = 42; L21: A = 23; L51: A = 54; . . . . . . . . . . . . L31: A = 31; L51: A = 52; L31: A = 33; L61: A = 64; L32: W[3,1] = A; L52: W[5,2] = A; L32: W[3,3] = A; L62: W[6,4] = A;Before dealing with CC3, it is easy first to exhibit a circuit which shows that the execution could not occur on a machine which obeys A(CMP,UPO,CC1).

(P1,L31,W,A,31,S1) <upo (P1,L32,R,A,42,S1) <crw (P2,L51,W,A,52,S1) (<crw by CC1) =cc1 (P2,L51,W,A,52,S2) <upo (P2,L52,R,A,23,S2) <crw (P3,L31,W,A,33,S2) =cc1 (P3,L31,W,A,33,S3) <upo (P3,L32,R,A,54,S3) <crw (P4,L61,W,A,64,S3) =cc1 (P4,L61,W,A,64,S4) <upo (P4,L62,R,A,21,S4) <crw (P1,L31,W,A,31,S4) =cc1 (P1,L31,W,A,31,S1)Now suppose the execution occurs on a machine which is only CC3, not CC1. We still know that these four paths occur among the events of the execution.

(P1,L31,W,A,31,S1) <upo (P1,L32,R,A,42,S1) <crw (P2,L51,W,A,52,S1) (P2,L51,W,A,52,S2) <upo (P2,L52,R,A,23,S2) <crw (P3,L31,W,A,33,S2) (P3,L31,W,A,33,S3) <upo (P3,L32,R,A,54,S3) <crw (P4,L61,W,A,64,S3) (P4,L61,W,A,64,S4) <upo (P4,L62,R,A,21,S4) <crw (P1,L31,W,A,31,S4) (<crw by CC3)From the first path

(P1,L31,W,A,31,S1) <upo (P1,L32,R,A,42,S1) <crw (P2,L51,W,A,52,S1)we conclude that:

(P1,L31,W,A,31,S1) <cc3 (P2,L51,W,A,52,S1)and from the definition of CC3 we have:

(P1,L31,W,A,31,Si) <cc3 (P2,L51,W,A,52,Si), for i=1,2,3,4.Similarly, from the next three paths we deduce that

(P2,L51,W,A,52,Si) <cc3 (P3,L31,W,A,33,Si), (P3,L31,W,A,33,Si) <cc3 (P4,L61,W,A,64,Si), and (P4,L61,W,A,64,Si) <cc3 (P1,L31,W,A,31,Si), for i=1,2,3,4.Thus these circuits must exist among the events of the execution:

(P1,L31,W,A,31,Si) <cc3 (P2,L51,W,A,52,Si) <cc3 (P3,L31,W,A,33,Si) <cc3 (P4,L61,W,A,64,Si) <cc3 (P1,L31,W,A,31,Si), for i=1,2,3,4.Consequently, these values could not have been calculated on a machine which obeys A(CMP,UPO,CC3).

Assume the machine obeys A(CMP,UPO,WW,WR). Then the following circuit exists among the events of the execution:

(P1,L31,W,A,31,S4) <wr (P1,L32,R,A,42,S1) <crw (P2,L51,W,A,52,S1) (<crw by WW) <wr (P2,L52,R,A,23,S2) <crw (P3,L31,W,A,33,S2) <wr (P3,L32,R,A,54,S3) <crw (P4,L61,W,A,64,S3) <wr (P4,L62,R,A,21,S4) <crw (P1,L31,W,A,31,S4)Consequently, the execution could not have occurred on a machine which obeyed A(CMP,UPO,WW,WR).

W[-,i] > W[-,j] > ... > W[-,i]where each element of {1,2,3,4} occurs at most once as one of the subscripts i, j, ....

Assume these values exist in array W after running the above code.

W[1,4] = 53 > 43 (43 determines the subscript in W[4,3], etc.) W[4,3] = 32 > 22 W[2,2] = 51 > 41 W[4,1] = 24 > 14 P1 P2 P3 P4 L42: W[4,1] = A; L22: W[2,2] = A; L42: W[4,3] = A; L12: W[1,4] = A; L51: A = 51; L31: A = 32; L51: A = 53; L21: A = 24;Then this circuit exists among the events of the execution:

(P4,L21,W,A,24,S1) <cwr (P1,L42,R,A,24,S1) <upo (P1,L51,W,A,51,S1) (P1,L51,W,A,51,S2) <cwr (P2,L22,R,A,51,S2) <upo (P2,L31,W,A,32,S2) (P2,L31,W,A,32,S3) <cwr (P3,L42,R,A,32,S3) <upo (P3,L51,W,A,53,S3) (P3,L51,W,A,53,S4) <cwr (P4,L12,R,A,53,S4) <upo (P4,L21,W,A,24,S4)From the first path we deduce that

(P4,L21,W,A,24,S1) <cc3 (P1,L51,W,A,51,S1)By the definition of CC3, it must be that

(P4,L21,W,A,24,Si) <cc3 (P1,L51,W,A,51,Si), for i=1,2,3,4.Similarly from the next three paths we similarly deduce that

(P1,L51,W,A,51,Si) <cc3 (P2,L31,W,A,32,Si), (P2,L31,W,A,32,Si) <cc3 (P3,L51,W,A,53,Si), and (P3,L51,W,A,53,Si) <cc3 (P4,L21,W,A,24,Si), for i=1,2,3,4.Combining the above we have the existence of the following circuits:

(P4,L21,W,A,24,Si) <cc3 (P1,L51,W,A,51,Si) <cc3 (P2,L31,W,A,32,Si) <cc3 (P3,L51,W,A,53,Si) <cc3 (P4,L21,W,A,24,Si), for i=1,2,3,4.Consequently, the execution could not have occurred on a machine obeying A(CMP,UPO,CC3).

Assume the same values occur on a machine which obeys A(CMP,UPO,RW). Then the following circuit exists.

(P4,L21,W,A,24,S1) <cwr (P1,L42,R,A,24,S1) <rw (P1,L51,W,A,51,S2) <cwr (P2,L22,R,A,51,S2) <rw (P2,L31,W,A,32,S3) <cwr (P3,L42,R,A,32,S3) <rw (P3,L51,W,A,53,S4) <cwr (P4,L12,R,A,53,S4) <rw (P4,L21,W,A,24,S1)Consequently, the execution could not have occurred on a machine obeying A(CMP,UPO,RW).

Assume the same values occur on a machine which obeys A(CMP,UPO,WW). Then the following circuit exists.

(P4,L21,W,A,24,S1) <cwr (P1,L42,R,A,24,S1) <srw (P1,L42,W,A,24,S2) <ww (P1,L51,W,A,51,S2) <cwr (P2,L22,R,A,51,S2) <srw (P2,L22,W,A,51,S3) <ww (P2,L31,W,A,32,S3) <cwr (P3,L42,R,A,32,S3) <srw (P3,L42,W,A,32,S4) <ww (P3,L51,W,A,53,S4) <cwr (P4,L12,R,A,53,S4) <srw (P4,L12,W,A,53,S1) <ww (P4,L21,W,A,24,S1)Consequently, the execution could not have occurred on a machine obeying A(CMP,UPO,WW).

The output from T8 allows one to see a phenomenon called convoys: two or more processors see all or part of the same sequence of values for the operand A. Different machines produce convoys in different frequencies and lengths; each machine is quite consistent in the frequency and length of convoy it produces. No explanation for the occurence of convoys has yet been offerred. No judgement has yet been made on whether or not the existence of convoys on a machine is desirable. ARCHTEST prints out the five longest convoys a machine produces (up to some limit on the lines of output). A complete analysis of the output from T8 can be obtained with the program T8CONVOY. (For further information on T8CONVOY see the file HOWTORUN.

Test T900 is similar to Test T600, except that there is only one shared operand instead of two. The test seeks to find a failure to obey CC3, instead of CC1.

Test T920 is identical to Test T900, except that A is a floating point operand.

These programs are experimental.## Test T10. Performance impact of cache misses.

The intent behind these programs is to provide an indication of the delay caused to a processor by a cache miss. As of this date (June 1, 1996) the programs have not produced useful information. Further experimentation will follow. The following information will serve to explain the intent behind the tests. Further information will follow.

In each of these tests the value of A is set only by P1; it serves as a clock value. Of course, P1 can be interrupted and so there can be large gaps in successive values of A, but if large gaps are ignored and if many data points are considered, then the value of A can be taken as a reasonably valid clock value. (While accesssing a system clock would yield more precision, it might not yield greater accuracy, since the instruction to access the clock may be a synchronized instruction itself.)

P2 alternately records the value of A in array U and changes the value of operand B. If B was in the invalid state, it will move to the exclusive state.

P3 changes the value of B and then dwells idly. If B was in the invalid state, it will move to the exclusive state.

The increasing values of B in P2 and P3 are irrelevant.

The changes in the states of B in P2 and P3 are summarized in the title line: inv -> excl & inv -> excl.

The differences in the successive values in the array U should consist of two distributions. Most of the differences will be short. Some will be longer. The longer differences reflect the impact of a hit by P3 on P2's cache. The shorter differences reflect the lack of a hit. The differences in the averages for the two distributions reflects the effect of a cache hit (measured in terms of iterations of the loop in P1).
