On the sun4v architecture ...

I was talking with one of my colleagues yesterday about OpenSPARC, and this reminded me about a presentation I gave over a year ago at the 2006 Multi-core expo about the changes we made to the SPARC architecture in order to support a full virtual machine environment. That talk was updated as a tutorial for the ASPLOS XII conference last year.

Since I'll probably be re-using a number of these slides in later blog entries, I thought it might be of interest to dig up the original PDF version and put that online first. The full slide deck can be found here:

... and they can also be found together with other tutorials on OpenSPARC.

You can find all the relevant bits on the download page, and it is free.
