Summary: Abstract
The use of simulation is well established in
academic and industry research as a means of
evaluating architecture trade-offs. The large code
base, complex architectural models, and numer-
ous configurations of these simulators can con-
sternate those just learning computer
architecture. Even those experienced with com-
puter architecture, may have trouble adapting a
simulator to their needs, due to the code complex-
ity and simulation method. In this paper we
present tools we have developed to make simula-
tion more accessible in the classroom by aiding
the process of launching simulations, interpreting
results and developing new architectural models.
1 Introduction
The use of simulation tools in computer engi-
neering is essential due to the time overhead and
cost of manufacturing prototypes. To better pre-
pare the student, we and many others have inte-
