ABSTRACT
<p>Today's superscalar microprocessors tend to execute instructions in an order different from the instruction sequence fed to them. With the aid of sophisticated branch predictors, they identify the program flow's potential path to find instructions that can be executed in advance.</p><p>CPU-intensive benchmarks have been widely used to evaluate these processors. The authors report a study demonstrating that to maximize performance on Internet server applications, modern processor architectures need further enhancements and optimizations, particularly in memory system design.</p>
