An adaptive cache coherence mechanism exploits semantic information about the expected or observed access behavior of particular data objects. The authors contend that, in distributed shared-memory systems, adaptive cache coherence mechanisms will outperform static cache coherence mechanisms. They have examined the sharing and synchronization behavior of a variety of shared-memory parallel programs. It is found that the access patterns of a large percentage of shared data objects fall into a small number of categories for which efficient software coherence mechanisms exist. In addition, the authors have performed a simulation study that provides two examples of how an adaptive caching mechanism can take advantage of semantic information
