Abstract
This paper develops and validates an analytical model
for evaluating various types of architectural alternatives for
shared­memory systems with processors that aggressively
exploit instruction­level parallelism. Compared to simu­
lation, the analytical model is many orders of magnitude
faster to solve, yielding highly accurate system performance
estimates in seconds.
The model input parameters characterize the ability of
an application to exploit instruction­level parallelism as
well as the interaction between the application and the
memory system architecture. A trace­driven simulation
methodology is developed that allows these parameters to
be generated over 100 times faster than with a detailed
