This repository contains implementations for multiple statistical simulation methodologies. Each implementation can produce a model file based on a trace of memory requests. In addition, each implementation can produce a new and synthetic trace of memory requests based on the model file.
This repository also contains tools, utilities and libraries. You may find these useful for generating traces, simulating traces, and other things related to statistical simulation in computer architecture.
This repository uses
CMake to configure how each binary is built (we recommend at least version 3.6).
In addition, this repositry depends on Google's protobuf library and compiler.
For example, if you are running an instance of Ubuntu you will need to install the packages
CMake can configure the project for different build systems and IDEs (type
cmake --help for a list of generators available for your platform).
We recommend you create a build directory before invoking CMake to configure the project (
For example, we can perform the configuration step from the project root directory:
cmake -H. -Bcmake-build-release -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release cmake -H. -Bcmake-build-debug -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Debug
After the configuration step, you can ask CMake to build the project.
cmake --build cmake-build-release/ --target all cmake --build cmake-build-debug/ --target all
Once compiled, you will find many executables in the
bin directory (e.g.,
--help argument for more information on the command line interface of each of these executables.
Most subdirectories in this repository contain their own README with more information.
