A Comparison of Two Approaches to Parallel Simulation of Multiprocessors

Over, Andrew; Clarke, William; Strazdins, Peter


The design trend towards CMPs has made the simulation of multiprocessor systems a necessity and has also made multiprocessor systems widely available. While a serial multiprocessor simulation necessarily imposes a linear slowdown, running such a simulation in parallel may help mitigate this effect. In this paper we document our experiences with two different methods of parallelizing Sparc Sulima, a simulator of UltraSPARC IIICu-based multiprocessor systems. In the first approach, a simple...[Show more]
