Instrumentation

Accurate, high-resolution instruments that measure performance, power, reliability, and thermal effects—from device to system level.

CENATE instruments capture the diversity of application behavior using methods that include measurements, sensors, and tool designed for:

  • Collecting a variety of data from different dimensions (performance, power, temperature, and/or resilience).
  • Combining internal (counters and sensors) and external (probes and cameras) instrumentation for detailed and comprehensive system characterization.
  • Abstracting the idiosyncrasies of each system to present a uniform view of measurements that can enable meaningful comparison.
  • Creating a set of tools to facilitate the instrumentation of and comparison among different workloads.
