This paper describes the design and implementation of vir-
tual memory management within the CMU Mach Operating
System and the experiences gained by the Mach kernel group
in porting that system to a variety of architectures. As of this
writing, Maeh runs on more than half a dozen uniprocessors
and multiprocessors including the VAX family of uniproces-
sors and multiprocessors, the IBM RT PC, the SUN 3, the
Encore MultiMax, the Sequent Balance 21000 and several
experimental computers. Although these systems vary con-
siderably in the kind of hardware support for memory
