This article presents Vasa, a configurable high-performanc e multiprocessor simulation package for the Virtutech Simics full-system simulator. Vasa includes models of multilevel caches, store buffers, interconnects and memory controllers and can model complex out-of-order SMT/CMPprocessors in great detail. However, it can also be run in two less detailed simulation modes being up to 287 times faster on average. We compare the simulation results from a 16-way cache coherent multiprocessor system… CONTINUE READING
