Servet is a portable suite of benchmarks to obtain the most interesting hardware parameters to support the automatic optimization of applications on multicore clusters. These benchmarks determine:
- Number of levels of cache and their sizes
- Cache topology of shared caches
- Memory access bottlenecks
- Communications layers and overheads
Furthermore Servet includes an API (with C syntax) to access the estimated data from programs or applications and algorithms to find the most appropriate mapping policy according to the estimated data.
