A mechanism called the pivot mechanism is introduced and described. It controls the dynamic migration of data pages between neighboring memory modules during program execution to improve the performance and programmability of multiprocessors with distributed global memory. The programmer or compiler is relieved from the data allocation task; moreover, because data allocation is dynamically modi
