Abstract:
The design of multiprocessors requires using data from real parallel programs to study the cost-performance tradeoffs in memory systems and interconnection networks. Practical methods of multiprocessor performance analysis use address traces to encapsulate the behavior of parallel programs. Trace-driven simulation techniques bridge the gap between full system simulations and analytical models; they are faster than full system simulations, and they can yield better predications than analytical models.
