In this paper, we discuss a distributed shared memory management scheme based on multi-threaded programming model for a large-scale loosely coupled multiprocessor system. The scheme covers three major issues in the distribued shared memory;the address translation table management, the block coherence maintenance, and the block placement policy. The scheme efficiently resolves the general problems occurred in the distributed shared memory such as a false sharing, an unnecessary replication, a block bouncing, and an address aliasing phenomenon. It also provides the application transparency, good scalability, easy implementation, and multithreaded programming model to users.
