An ILP (Instruction-Level Parallelism) compiler uses aggressive optimizations to reduce a program's running time. These optimizations have been shown to be effective when profile information is available. Unfortunately, users are not always willing or able to profile their programs. A method of overcoming this issue is for an ILP compiler to statically infer the information normally obtained from profiling. This paper investigates one aspect of this inference: the static prediction of… CONTINUE READING
