The increasing complexity of realistic benchmarks combined with the relatively sluggish rate of detailed performance analysis has resulted in an ever-increasing gap between the size of the workload and the speed of analysis. We have presented a methodology for generating and validating representative input sampled data (traces) from SPEC95 benchmark suite using R-metric and K-metric. Experimental results demonstrate the superiority of our proposed technique over the existing popular profile-driven methodology and the uniform sampling approach.
