This paper describes RSIM -- the Rice Simulator
for ILP Multiprocessors -- Version 1.0. RSIM sim­
ulates shared­memory multiprocessors (and unipro­
cessors) built from processors that aggressively ex­
ploit instruction­level parallelism (ILP). RSIM is
execution­driven and models state­of­the­art ILP pro­
cessors, an aggressive memory system, and a multi­
processor coherence protocol and interconnect, includ­
ing contention at all resources. Although originally
designed as a research tool, RSIM is also being used
successfully in both undergraduate and graduate com­
