Cassini Element Library

Introduction to the Cassini Element Library

Cassini implements a collection of “uncore” and non-processor core components which are important to the the performance characterization of applications and computer hardware. These components include data prefetchers, translation look-aside buffers (TLBs) as well as functions such as shared operating system calls (which allow simple processor components to offload services such as memory allocation etc). When used with other SST components such as memHierarchy, Ariel, Prospero etc, Cassini is able to improve the accuracy and fidelity of detailed, low-level simulations.
