3 Memory Heirarchy This problem combines elements from chapter 7 and 8 problems. You have a 500 MHz processor with 2-levels of cache, 1 level of DRAM, and a DISK for virtual memory. Assume that it has a Harvard architecture (separate instruction and data cache at level 1). Assume that the memory system has the following parameters: Component Hit Time Miss Rate Block Size First-Level Cache 1 cycle 4% Data 1% Instructions

Unformatted text preview: 64 bytes Second-Level Cache 20 cycles + 1 cycle/64bits 2% 128 bytes DRAM 100ns+ 25ns/8 bytes 1% 16K bytes TLB 1 cycle 0.1% 16K bytes Finally, assume that the TLB has a fill penalty of 40 cycles. Question 1: Assume that the DRAM miss rate refers to a page fault. The DISK parameters are: Drive rotates at 12000RPM, transfer rate 32 MB/second, 10ms average seek time. What is the “Miss Penalty” for filling a DRAM page? You can treat MB=10 6 bytes and KB=10 3 bytes. Question 2: Write an equation for AMAT data as seen by the processor. You do not have to generate an actual number. This equation should evaluate to a time in “ns”, so make sure to check units. Hint: using a set of equations with symbolic values is probably the simplest thing to do....

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
