We selectively generate and optimize the frames constructed by the rePLay architecture statically. Since static analysis provides a global view of the interaction between the basic blocks and a bigger aggressive optimization space, we propose a method to construct the frames using profiling and static analysis. Frame selection and optimization are analyzed in the criteria to produce well-optimized, frequently executed frames with minimum recovery penalty. In addition, hardware support is
