Locating cache performance bottlenecks using data profiling
Effective use of CPU data caches is critical to good performance, but poor cache use patterns are often hard to spot using existing execution profiling tools. Typical profilers at...

Using Hardware Performance Monitors to Isolate Memory Bottlenecks
In this paper, we present and evaluate two techniques that use different styles of hardware support to provide data structure specific processor cache information. In one approach...

Understanding the backward slices of performance degrading instructions
For many applications, branch mispredictions and cache misses limit a processor’s performance to a level well below its peak instruction throughput. A small fraction of static i...

A quantitative framework for automated pre-execution thread selection
Pre-execution attacks cache misses for which conventional address-prediction driven prefetching is ineffective. In pre-execution, copies of cache miss computations are isolated fr...

Miss Penalty Reduction Using Bundled Capacity Prefetching in Multiprocessors
While prefetch has proven itself useful for reducing cache misses in multiprocessors, traffic is often increased due to extra unused prefetch data. Prefetching in multiprocessors...
