The performance of cache-based multiprocessors for general-purpose computing and for multitasking is analyzed with simple throughput models. A private cache is associated with each processor, and multiple buses connect the processors to the shared, interleaved memory. Simple models based on dynamic instruction mix statistics are introduced to evaluate upper bounds on the throughput when indepen
