    coolthreads.cs.sfu.ca
  • Sun Microsystems UltraSPARC T2000 (Niagara). 32 threads on the chip.More info
  • Access requires reservation.
  • Runs Simics, but slowly
    • quad.cs.sfu.ca
  • Intel x86 quad-core server. Access requires reservation.
  • Two physical chips (or CPU packages), each with  two cores. The two cores share an L2 cache.  L2 cache is shared among processors on the same chip: processors 0 and 1, and  processors 2 and 3.
  • Quad is a dual-boot system, running Linux or Solaris. If you have an account on one OS, you may not necessarily have one on the other. If you need an account, e-mail Ananth Narayan: ans6@cs.sfu.ca

    • trocadero.cs.sfu.ca
  • AMD server with two quad-core CPUs. Access requires reservation.
  • Has two chips. Each chip has four cores. Each core has private L1 instruction and data caches and a private L2 cache. The L3 cache is shared among the cores on the same chip.
  • Dual boot Linux and Solaris.
