download only the benchmark assigned to you which we have specified as the Google-classroom
Except the benchmark, remaining parameters are same for all students. In other words, each student
needs to run benchmark with cache configuration specified for him/her (note that due to this, each
student will get different results).
Run sim-outorder for 10,000,000 instructions with cache configuration given for you and the benchmark
given to you. (Other than these, you don't need to change any parameter). L2 cache block size is 64B
and L2 associativity is 8 throughout this exercise.
(a) Find the L2 cache miss-rate (=L2_misses/L2_references). Call it DefaultL2MissRate.
(b) Find out the IPC (instruction per cycle). Call it BaselineIPC. (Here L1 latency = 1 cycle and L2 latency =
(c) Now increase the latency of L1 cache (both IL1 and DL1) to 2 cycle and get IPC and call it slowL1IPC.
(d) Bring back latency of L1 cache to 1 cycle. Increase latency of L2 cache (which is data/instruction
unified, so just change DL2 latency) to 7 cycle. Get IPC and call it slowL2IPC.
(e) Bring back L1 and L2 latency to their default values. Now change L2 replacement policy to random
and FIFO and get L2 miss_rate with each of them. Call them RandomMissRate and FIFOMissRate,
(f) Bring back L2 replacement policy to LRU. Now, find IPC on changing issue policy to in-order, call it
(g) Bring back the issue policy to its original value. Change instruction decode, issue and commit
bandwidth to 8, 8, 8, respectively. Find the new IPC, call it DiffWidthIPC

Hello sir. I read your description carefully. But i think your budget is too small for your project. Can you arrange money more. I think it will take at least 300~500usd. Hope your good message
I have downloaded, compiled and executed the simulator as per the instructions, and took the liberty to execute one of the benchmarks. I can give you the answers as soon as you want.
