[parsec-users] Time to Completion

It does seem something is not going well. Could you let us know where
exactly the simulation gets stuck?


There are a number of things that could have gone wrong:


.         The programs did finish (in one way or another) but Simics did not
recognize this. This could be if you simulate until a magic break point is
reached but the program crashed or something else happened. In other words,
you continue to simulate an idle system.

.         It might be that you've hit the deadlock that was reported for
ferret. It can occur at the end of the Region-of-Interest. Chris Fensch
developed a patch for that, you can download it from the PARSEC wiki.


There are also other things that might have gone wrong, it's impossible to
tell anything for sure without knowing the details. Please check the output
of the simulation.

Hello all,

I am new to parsec, and i am trying to run parsec on a sparc-solaris10
machine which is simulated in simics v3.0.31

My question is the following:

I have run all benchmarks with a simlarge load using:

parsecmgmt -a run -p all -x pre -i simlarge -n 32 -c gcc-hooks

This took about 2.5 days to complete.

Now I am trying to run benchmarks individually, e.g. x264 using the exact
same commands, the simulation has been running for 2 weeks and still hasnt

Any suggestions on what i am doing ( if i am doing ) something wrong?

Thanks in advance,
