ATUM: A New Technique for Capturing Address Traces Using Microcode

  title={ATUM: A New Technique for Capturing Address Traces Using Microcode},
  author={Anant Agarwal and Richard L. Sites and Mark Horowitz},
Trace-driven simulation is often used in the design of computer systems, especially caches and translation lookaside buffers. Capturing address traces to drive such simulations has been problematic, often involving 1000:1 software overhead to trace a target workload, and/or mechanisms that cause significant distortions in the recorded data. A new technique for capturing address traces has been developed to use a processor's microcode to record addresses in a reserved part of main memory as a… CONTINUE READING
