Computing Performance: Game Over or Next Level?
Found in: Computer
By Samuel H. Fuller, Lynette I. Millett
Issue Date:January 2011
pp. 31-38
The end of dramatic exponential growth in single-processor performance marks the end of the dominance of the single microproessor in computing. The era of sequential computing must give way to an era in which parallelism holds the forefront. Although impor...

Price/performance comparison of C.mmp and the PDP-10
Found in: Proceedings of the 3rd annual symposium on Computer architecture (ISCA '76)
By Samuel H. Fuller
Issue Date:January 1976
pp. 217-218
The analysis in this paper shows a multiprocessor like C.mmp to have a factor of three to four cost/performance advantage over uniprocessor systems such as the PDP-10 when implementations using similar technologies are considered. This comparison is shown ...
     
An Analysis of Drum Storage Units
Found in: Journal of the ACM (JACM)
By Forest Baskett, Samuel H. Fuller
Issue Date:January 1975
pp. 83-105
The fundamentals of Post algebras are presented and Post and Boolean functions are examined. A functional representation is developed that facilitates the comparison of Post and Boolean algebras. Based on this representation, relationships between finite, ...
     
Microprogramming and its relationship to emulation and technology
Found in: Conference record of the 7th annual workshop on Microprogramming (MICRO 7)
By C. Gordon Bell, Charles Kaman, Samuel H. Fuller, Victor R. Lesser
Issue Date:September 1974
pp. 151-158
This paper is a survey of the development and future trends in microprogramming. We show how the structure of microprogrammed processors has been shaped primarily by two factors: the state of (semiconductor) technology and the task of emulation. The other ...
     
Markov chain models for analyzing memory interference in multiprocessor computer systems
Found in: Proceedings of the 1st annual symposium on Computer architecture (ISCA '73)
By Dileep P. Bhandarkar, Samuel H. Fuller
Issue Date:December 1973
pp. 217-218
This paper discusses various analytical techniques for studying the extent of memory interference in a multiprocessor system with a crosspoint switch for processor-memory communication. Processor behavior is simplified to an ordered sequence of a memory re...
     
Performance of an I/O channel with multiple paging drums
Found in: Proceeding of the 1973 ACM SIGME symposium (SIGME '73)
By Samuel H. Fuller
Issue Date:January 1973
pp. 13-21
For rotating storage units, a paging drum organization is known to offer substantially better response time to I/O requests than is a more conventional (file) organization [Abate and Dubner, 1969; Fuller and Baskett, 1972 ]. When several, asynchronous pagi...
     
Summary of minimal-total-processing-time drum and disk scheduling disciplines
Found in: Proceedings of the fourth symposium on Operating system principles (SOSP '73)
By Samuel H. Fuller
Issue Date:January 1973
pp. 54-57
This article investigates the application of minimal-total-processing-time (MTPT) scheduling disciplines to rotating storage units when random arrival of requests is allowed. Fixed-head drum and moving-head disk storage units are considered and particular ...
