PDATS II: improved compression of address traces

  title={PDATS II: improved compression of address traces},
  author={E. E. Johnson},
The tremendous storage space required for a useful data base of memory reference traces has prompted a search for trace compaction techniques. PDATS is the standard trace format used in the NMSU TraceBase, a widely used archive of memory and instruction traces. The PDATS family of trace compression techniques achieves trace coding densities of about six references per byte — with no loss of reference type or address information — by using differential run-length encoding. This paper proposes an… CONTINUE READING
