Abstract
(EN)
A new computer architecture that includes an information management executive for coupling memory based peripheral storage units to a computer operating system that typically uses I/O commands for addressing peripheral storage units is disclosed. The information management executive includes an I/O executive, a memory mapping executive and a memory mapper. According to the principles of this invention, the information management executive receives both I/O mapped commands and memory mapped commands from the operating system and either retrieves or stores the information specified in the operating system command in the memory of a memory based peripheral storage unit.

L'invention concerne une nouvelle architecture informatique comprenant un superviseur de gestion d'informations destiné à coupler des unités de stockage périphériques implantées en mémoire, à un système de commande informatique utilisant habituellement des instructions E/S pour accéder aux unités de stockage périphériques. Le superviseur de gestion d'informations comprend un superviseur E/S, un superviseur de topographie de mémoire ainsi qu'une unité de topographie de mémoire. Selon les principes de l'invention, ledit superviseur de gestion d'informations reçoit à la fois des instructions topographiques E/S et des instructions topographiques de mémoire du système de commande, et soit extrait soit stocke les informations spécifiées dans l'instruction du système de commande, dans la mémoire d'une unité de stockage périphérique implantée en mémoire.
