Manifold Tutorial at HPCA-2014

Posted by on Apr 28, 2014 in Uncategorized | Comments Off on Manifold Tutorial at HPCA-2014

The Manifold team presented a half-day tutorial on Manifold at the 20th IEEE International Symposium on High Performance Computer Architecture (HPCA-2014), on Feb. 15, 2014, in Orlando, FL. The tutorial gives a detailed introduction to Manifold and focuses on how to build and simulate multicore system models using Manifold, as well as how to write components for Manifold. The outline of the tutorial is available here.

Paper accepted by SIMUTools 2014

Posted by on Dec 23, 2013 in Uncategorized | Comments Off on Paper accepted by SIMUTools 2014

The paper, “An Efficient Front-End for Timing-Directed Parallel Simulation of Multi-Core System”, authored by Zhenjiang Dong, Jun Wang, George Riley, and Sudhakar Yalamanchili, has been accepted by SIMUTools 2014. This paper describes an improvement to QSim Server for efficient parallel simulation of multicore models. In this improvement, proxy processes are created that act as intermediary between the server and the clients. The proxies communicate with the server through TCP/IP, but work with the clients in a producer-consumer manner using shared memory segments. Experiments...

The paper, “Manifold: a parallel simulation framework for multicore systems”, has been accepted by the 2014 IEEE International Symposium on Performance Analysis of Systems and Software (ISPASS). This paper officially introduces Manifold to the research community as a component-based software framework with a parallel simulation kernel, a set of architectural components, and an integrated library of power, thermal, reliability, and energy models. Distinguishing features of Manifold include i) transparent parallel execution, ii) integration of power, thermal, reliability, and energy...

Manifold 0.11 has been released!

Posted by on Oct 21, 2013 in Uncategorized | Comments Off on Manifold 0.11 has been released!

As of today (October 21, 2013), Manifold Release 0.11, is available for download. The most important change in this release is the set of new simulators under simulator/smp2. The three simulators in that directory use three different front-ends respectively: QSim server, QSim library, and trace files. They are a complete redesign of the simulators under simulator/smp. While the simulators in simulaor/smp use a fixed set of components, the new simulators allow user to replace a processor model with another, and this only requires a one-line change in the configure file. For example, if the...

Manifold tutorial at Micro-46 2013

Posted by on Sep 20, 2013 in Uncategorized | Comments Off on Manifold tutorial at Micro-46 2013

We are pleased to announce that we will be presenting a Manifold tutorial during Micro-46 on December 7, 2013, in Davis, CA. The tutorial gives a detailed introduction to Manifold and focuses on how to build and simulate multicore system models using Manifold, as well as how to write components for Manifold. It would be of great interest to students, researchers, and practitioners, who use simulation for their research work in multicore architectures. The outline of the tutorial is available here.
