Memory Interference Characterization and Mitigation for Heterogeneous Smartphones

Abstract The availability of a wide range of general purpose as well as accelerator cores on

modern smartphones means that a significant number of applications can be executed

on a smartphone simultaneously, resulting in an ever increasing demand on the memory

subsystem. While the increased computation capability is intended for improving

user experience, memory requests from each concurrent application exhibit unique

memory access patterns as well as specific timing constraints. If not considered, this

could lead to significant memory contention and result in lowered user experience.

This work first analyzes the impact of memory degradation caused by the interference

at the memory system for a broad range of commonly-used smartphone applica... (more)
