A Workload Generation Environment for Trace-Driven Simulation of Shared-Bus Multiprocessors

  title={A Workload Generation Environment for Trace-Driven Simulation of Shared-Bus Multiprocessors},
  author={Roberto Giorgi and Cosimo Antonio Prete and Gianpaolo Prina and Luigi M. Ricciardi},
We describe an environment to produce traces representing significant workloads for a shared-bus shared-memory multiprocessor used as a general-purpose multitasking machine, where each processor can include multithread facilities. By means of an exclusively software approach, the environment produces traces that include both user and kernel references, starting from source traces containing only user references. The process scheduling and the virtualto-physical address translation are simulated… CONTINUE READING
