Abstract
The Cell Broadband Engine (Cell BE) is a recent het-
erogeneous chip-multiprocessor (CMP) architecture jointly
developed by IBM, Sony and Toshiba to offer very high per-
formance, especially on game and multimedia applications.
The significant number of processor cores that it contains
(nine in its first generation), along with their heterogeneity
(they are of two different types) and the variety of synchro-
nization and communication primitives offered to program-
mers, make the task of developing efficient applications for
the Cell BE very challenging. In this work, we present
CellStats, a tool aimed at characterizing the performance
