Abstract
Abstract—The extremely slow simulation speed of full-system simulators remains a critical bottleneck restricting their widespread use. Although several simulation acceleration techniques have been proposed, they have generally been limited to only few simulators or platforms. Thus, the possibility of benefitting one component from another has been generally lacking. In this paper, we demonstrate our work on integrating SMARTS sampling- based simulation acceleration technique into GEMS full-system simulator. We discuss the ...
