Abstract

In reconfigurable platform, before convert and download program into real hardware, reliable estimation of speedup factor is of great importance for task schedulers. In this paper, a novel technique for speedup factor estimation is proposed. From the event patterns collected by hardware counters built in modern processors, a formula is given to estimate speedup factor of target process. Experiments on programs from SPEC2006 show that the speedup feature is able to be estimated at an acceptable cost.
