With more cores becoming available in each future generation of microprocessors (i.e. the well-known Moore's Law), scalability is becoming an increasingly important issue. Scalability of the operating system, in particular, is critical to such systems. To study OS scalability and many other issues related to OS performance on multicore systems, software and hardware profilers are indispensable tools. Hardware profilers give detailed performance information on hardware components with minimal… CONTINUE READING
