Hardware Support for Protective and Collaborative Cache Sharing 

Raj Parihar, Jacob Brock, Chen Ding and Michael C. Huang

Abstract: In shared environments and compute clouds, users are often un- related to each other. In such circumstances, an overall gain in throughput does not justify an individual loss. This paper presents a new cache management technique that allows conservative sharing to protect the cache occupancy for individual programs, yet enables full cache utilization whenever there is an opportunity to do so.
