On the basis of a Chip Multi-Processor (CMP) with a shared cache structure, this paper proposes a new associated partitioning framework of multi-level Cache which is called UF-ACP (Utility and Fair-based Associated Cache Partitioning). The framework includes the associated structure of all the private L2 Caches and the partitioning algorithm of the last level Cache. Besides this paper designs Application Performance Monitor (APM), which can dynamically collect hit and miss rate information of multiple multi-threaded applications on different cache partitions.
