Analysis of benchmark characteristics and benchmark performance prediction

Rafael H. Saavedra, Alan J. Smith

We have developed a machineindependent model of program execution to characterize both machine performance and program execution.  ...  These attempts have ranged from using simple Markov Chain models [Rama65, Beiz70] to more complex approaches that involve solving a set of recursive performance equations [Hick88].  ...  We also thank Vicki Scott from MIPS Co. who assisted us with the SPEC benchmarks, and Oscar Loureiro and Barbara Tockey who made useful suggestions.  ...
