Sigil2 and SynchroTrace: Flexible Workload Profiling and Fast Memory-NoC Simulation

Topic Outline

In this tutorial, we discuss Sigil; a workload profiling toolset that allows architects to explore and investigate sources of performance bottlenecks in current and future systems. Sigil captures platform-independent behavior from workloads which can be used to assist HW/SW partitioning problems and to assist trace-based simulation of multi-threaded workloads on CMPs. This tutorial also presents SynchroTrace, a simulation framework built on top of Sigil to perform trace-based simulation.
