ABSTRACT
This paper presents a taxonomy of interrupt processing strategies for concurrent processors. Such a taxonomy helps processor designers systematically explore possible interrupt processing system implementations. It also provides a framework to which new information about interrupt processing can easily be added. This paper also discusses other issues which relate to interrupt processing, such as preciseness, interrupt nesting, and interrupt- specific hardware.
INDEX TERMS
Interrupt processing, precise interrupts, imprecise interrupts, concurrent processors, taxonomy, checkpointing, out- of-order execution, out-of-order issue, pipelined processors, superscalar processors
