<integer> is in bytes: 4 | 8 | 16 | 32 | 64 | 128 | 256 | 512 | 1024 | 2048 | 4096 | 8192 | 16384 | 32768 | 65536

collect=map --enable cache-simulation



Cache simulation modeling applies to the following analyses:

  • Memory Access Patterns - This basic simulation functionality models accurate memory footprints, miss information, and cache line utilization for a downstream Memory Access Patterns report.

  • Trip Counts and FLOP - This enhanced simulation functionality models multiple levels of cache for a downstream GUI Roofline chart or Roofline interactive HTML report. To enable enhanced simulation functionality in a GUI Roofline chart: Set the ADVIXE-EXPERIMENTAL=int_roofline environment variable.


Run a Memory Access Patterns analysis. Model four-way associative cache with 64-byte cache line size and default cache set size.

$ advixe-cl collect=map --enable-cache-simulation --cachesim-cacheline-size=64 --cachesim-associativity=4 --cachesim-mode=utilization --project-dir=./myAdvisorProj -- ./myApp
