Load-Sto-Meter: Generating Workloads for Persistent Memory

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

New persistent memory technologies allow IO to be replaced with memory mapped files where the primary operations are load, store, flush and fence instructions executed by CPU’s. This creates a new need for software generate well understood workloads made up of those operations to characterize implementations of persistent memory related functionality. This session describes a proposal for such a workload generator which could play a role for PM solutions similar to IOMeter for IO.

Learning Objectives

Learn how pure load/store workloads can be generated
Learn about parameters that should govern the creation of pure load/store workloads
