Abstract
With the heavy memory pressure produced by multi-core systems and with memory per- formance trailing processor performance, today’s application developers need to consider the memory subsystem during software development. In particular, optimizing software re- quires a deep understanding of how the software uses the memory and how the hardware satisfies the memory requests. In order to accelerate development, programmers rely on soft- ware tools such as profilers for insightful analysis. However, current software tools generate analytical results with respect to the lines of code rather than the memory, which hides prevalent memory-related bottlenecks. Thus, the...
