Abstract:There is a constant need to improve processor performance on any system. It is vital to be able to visualize performance owing to a caching strategy and to use custom benchmarks to study the changes in performance. This thesis details the development and the evaluation of a graphical user interface to study the performance of a caching strategy detailed in [1]. Further, the process of creating synthetic benchmarks as well as integrating existing benchmarks to run with the tool are detailed. This thesis also proposes a synchronization mechanism which identifies the core carrying out 'prefetch and lock' of this framework and stalls other online and present cores temporarily during this phase of 'colored lockdown', to provide support on systems in which 'lockdown by master' is not available.
