Instruction Based Memory Distance Analysis and its Application
Feedback-directed Optimization has become an increasingly important tool in designing and building optimizing compilers as itprovides a means to analyze complexprogram behavior that is not possible using traditional static analysis. Feedback-directed optimizationoffers the compiler opportunities to analyze and optimize the memory behavior of programs even when traditional array-based analysis not applicable. As a result, bothfloatingpoint and integer programs can memory hierarchy optimization. In this we examine the notion of memory distance as it is applied to the instruction space of a program and to directed optimization. Memory distance is dejined as a dynamic distance in terms of memory references between two accesses to the same memory location. We use memory distance to predict the miss rates of instructions in a program. Using the miss rates, we then identifi the program’s critical instructions set of high miss instructionswhose cumulative misses account for 95% of the L2 ca...
