In this paper we examine the use of base vector applications as a tool for classifying an application’s usage of a processor’s resources. We define a series of base vector applications, simple applications designed to place directed stress on a single processor resource. By co-scheduling base vector applications with a target application on a CMT multi-threaded processor, we can determine an application’s sensitivity to a particular processor resource, and an application’s intensity with… CONTINUE READING
