Program Segment Cost Analysis

  • Fabian Wolf


In chapter 3, it has been argued that path analysis and program segment (PrS) cost determination also referred to as architecture modeling are separated. In this chapter, fast and efficient methodologies to determine local PrScosts which are needed for the process-level solution are introduced. As execution paths in PrS are fixed, it is feasible to extend analysis granularity from basic blocks to PrS. Simulation and measurement of basic blocks are two possibilities that can be extended to execution cost determination of program segments. The program segment cost can be the running time, power consumption or the communicated data.
