Taming Hardware Event Samples for Precise and Versatile Feedback Directed Optimizations


Feedback-directed optimization (FDO) is effective in improving application runtime performance, but has not been widely adopted due to the tedious dual-compilation model, the difficulties in generating representative training data sets, and the high runtime overhead of profile collection. The use of hardware-event sampling overcomes these drawbacks by… (More)
