Abstract
The project involves exploring a large design space for a heterogeneous single-chip multiprocessor that has a single out-of-order core and several simple in-order cores. Goals involve successful simulation with small workloads of an adequate number of configurations needed to use a tool (GPRS) that generates a performance model for further study. In addition, goals include successful simulation with larger workloads to verify conclusions formed from GPRS and the smaller simulations.
Use of FutureSystems
Using Genesis II software already configured on FutureGrid resources to perform computation
Scale of Use
Multiple runs of 500-1000 jobs. Each job runs several hours to 2+ days.
