ABSTRACT
<p>Although architectural simulators model microarchitectures at a high abstraction level, the increasing complexity of both the microarchitectures themselves and the applications that run on them make simulator use extremely time-consuming. Simulators must execute huge numbers of instructions to create a workload representative of real applications, creating an unreasonably long simulation time and stretching the time to market.</p><p>Using reduced input sets instead of reference input sets helps to solve this problem. The authors have developed a methodology that reliably quantifies program behavior similarity to verify if reduced input sets result in program behavior similar to the reference inputs.</p>
