I would like to do some comparative testson Intel Core 2with L2 cache prefetcherenabled or disabled. It seems Intel C++ compilersupports such a function. Mysystem isLinux, kernelversion2.6.20 and I haven't used Intel compiler before. How should I implement such a function on my system?
Meanwhile, my system may need to kown informations suchas how many prefetchers can perform at the same time or how does the perfetcher handle the contentions on it?
Would you give some suggestion or tell me some literatures i shall refer to?
Thanks a lot!
