Profilers play an important role in software/hardware design, optimization, and verification. Various approaches have been proposed to implement profilers. The most widespread approach adopted in the embedded domain is Instruction Set Simulation (ISS) based profiling, which provides uncompromised accuracy but limited execution speed. Source code profilers, on the contrary, are fast but less accurate. This paper introduces TotalProf, a fast and accurate source code cross profiler that estimates… CONTINUE READING

Key Quantitative Results

  • With only about a 5 to 15% error rate introduced to the major performance metrics, such as cycle count, memory accesses and cache misses, a more than one Giga-Instruction-Per-Second (GIPS) execution speed is achieved.
