TD-CaS stands for trace driven cache simulator and combines a set of computer research tools and plot programs under a graphical user interface (GUI). TD-CaS controls the steps of trace driven cache simulation and administrates their input and output files. The simulation steps are: 1) Compilation of a C program (optional) 2) Instrumentation 3) Execution 4) Trace driven cache simulation 5) Execution Time Mapping 6) Display of the results in a graphical plot (typically as [miss rate or estimated execution time] vs. [cache size, block size, etc...])
Hardware requirements are Unix workstations with Sparc processors under an X Window system. The following software tools have to be installed: qpt (instrumenting WARTS tool from the University of Wisconsin), dineroIII (WARTS cache simulator), Tcl/TK (scripting language and window managing system) and gnuplot.
