Effectiveness of Trace Sampling for Performance Debugging Tools

  title={Effectiveness of Trace Sampling for Performance Debugging Tools},
  author={Margaret Martonosi and Anoop Gupta and Thomas E. Anderson},
Recently there has been a surge of interest in developing performance debugging tools to help programmers tune their applications for better memory performance [2, 4, 10]. These tools vary both in the detail of feedback provided to the user, and in the run-time overbead of using them. MemSpy [10] is a simulation-based tool which gives programmers detailed statistics on the memory system behavior of applications. It provides information on the frequency and causes of cache misses, and presents… CONTINUE READING
