Although DSMs have globally addressable memory, the time required to access a memory location varies depending on the location of the physical memory unit with respect to the processor accessing it.
The memory module that contains memory location a is commonly referred to as the home memory of a and the home memory is located at the home node or the home [Lenoski et al.
To further complicate matters, many older programs are written to use only the 640 KB in conventional memory, so you're stuck with only what will fit unless you can find a way to relocate some of the program code, such as DOS, to a higher memory location.
For example, a CISC processor might have an instruction to add data in one memory location to data in another memory location.
