Distributed shared memory system is essential to provide a general and convenient programming environment. On a distributed system, caching of remote data is effective for minimization of the access latency. Hardware implementation of protocol management mechanism reduces runtime overheads which accompany with consistency management of cache coherence. This paper describes a low cost method to implement a distributed shared memory system with efficient coherence management mechanism and scalable directory structure, by equipping a memory controller with a simple circuit instead of employing extra SRAM chips for tag information. We implemented this mechanism on a parallel computer prototype system, OCHANOMIZ-5.
