Using dinero, a Cache Simulator

dineroIII is a trace-driven cache simulator developed by Mark Hill from University of Wisconsin at Madison. Simulation results are determined by the input trace and the cache parameters. A trace is a finite sequence of memory references usually obtained by the interpretive execution of a program or set of programs.

In the Computer Science and Applied Mathematics at IIT the simulator runs on the deltas cluster.
