Notes

Abstract: Programs often call the same function with the same arguments, yielding the same results. The authors call this phenomenon, "function reuse". Previously, we have shown such a behavior for some of the SPEC2000 integer benchmarks using HP ATOM instrumentation tools. However, this required extensive analysis by hand, and assumptions regarding side-effects caused by functions. In this paper, the authors modified a well-known architecture simulator, SimpleScalar, to analyze multiple benchmarks to investigate the function reuse behavior.
