Abstract

In this paper, we present a methodology for managing the Distributed Virtual Memory (DVM). The methodology includes distributed algorithms for DVM management to detect the memory status which will enhance previous DVM techniques. The DVM data structure tables are similar to those found in current Conventional Virtual Memory (CVM) with some modifications. Finally, we evaluate our methodology through experimental results to show the effectiveness of our approach.
