Workload Trace Generation

The intended audience for this document is a performance engineer preparing traces for performance prediction on new Arm hardware. It is expected that the reader understands the basic concepts of performance engineering such as: • Workload characterization • Identifying key aspects of a workload • Understanding how Performance Monitor Unit (PMU) events correlate to a workload Click her... » read more

Understanding the Interactions of Workloads and DRAM Types: A Comprehensive Experimental Study

Abstract "It has become increasingly difficult to understand the complex interaction between modern applications and main memory, composed of DRAM chips. Manufacturers are now selling and proposing many different types of DRAM, with each DRAM type catering to different needs (e.g., high throughput, low power, high memory density). At the same time, the memory access patterns of prevalent and... » read more
