Helper Threads via Virtual Multithreading
November/December 2004 (vol. 24 no. 6)
pp. 74-82
Helper threading accelerates a program by exploiting a processor's multithreading capability to run assist threads. Based on the helper threading usage model, Virtual Multithreading (VMT), a form of switch-on-event user-level multithreading, can improve performance for real-world workloads with awall-clock speedup of 5.0 to 38.5 percent.
