Exact Analysis of the Cache Behavior of Nested Loops

  title={Exact Analysis of the Cache Behavior of Nested Loops},
  author={Siddhartha Chatterjee and Erin Parker and Philip J. Hanlon and Alvin R. Lebeck},
We develop from first principles an exact model of the behavior of loop nests executing in a memory hicrarchy, by using a nontraditional classification of misses that has the key property of composability. We use Presburger formulas to express various kinds of misses as well as the state of the cache at the end of the loop nest. We use existing tools to simplify these formulas and to count cache misses. The model is powerful enough to handle imperfect loop nests and various flavors of non… CONTINUE READING
