A Quantitative Analysis of Loop Nest Locality

  title={A Quantitative Analysis of Loop Nest Locality},
  author={Kathryn S. McKinley and Olivier Temam},
This paper analyzes and quantifies the locality characteristics of numerical loop nests in order to suggest future directions for architecture and software cache optimizations. Since most programs spend the majority of their time in nests, the vast majority of cache optimization techniques target loop nests. In contrast, the locality characteristics that drive these optimizations are usually collected across the entire application rather than the nest level. Indeed, researchers have studied… CONTINUE READING
