Static branch frequency and program profile analysis

  title={Static branch frequency and program profile analysis},
  author={Youfeng Wu and James R. Larus},
Program profiles identify frequently executed portions of a program, which are the places at which optimizations offer programmers and compilers the greatest benefit. Compilers, however, infrequently exploit program profiles, because profiling a program requires a programmer to instrument and run the program. An attractive alternative is for the compiler to statically estimate program profiles. This paper presents several new techniques for static branch prediction and profiling. The first… CONTINUE READING
