THE LIMIT OF INSTRUCTION-LEVEL PARALLELISM IN SPEC95 APPLICATIONS 2
The Limit of Instruction-level parallelism in SPEC95 Applications
Parallelism in programs has limits to the level of instructions. The paper “The Limit of
Instruction-level parallelism in SPEC95 Applications” discussed the recent version of SPEC
which has various limitations which can be evidenced as they appear at the stack pointer.
Therefore, this paper reflects on the problem discussed, solutions, my thoughts about the
solutions, the challenges associated with the solutions which were proposed, as well as the
overall perception.
Problem Discussed
There are three problems that were discussed in the paper The Limit of Instruction-level
parallelism in SPEC95 Applications”. The first problem is referred to as resource dependency
that can be described as the things which include the size of caches, the window size of
instruction, level of pipelining, number of functions units, and other resource dependencies.
Secondly, control dependencies are also among the problems that limit instruction-level
parallelism. Control dependencies mostly arise from the eager to resolve some conditional
branches as well as computed jumps. Lastly, the other problem discussed in the paper that limits
the instruction-level parallelism in SPEC95 are data dependencies, which are stated to be related
to the storage locations.
Proposed Solutions
In addition, the paper has also discussed the proposed solutions to these three problems that limit
the instruction-level parallelism in SPEC95 applications. One of the solutions which were
