/** | |

* The stack distance calculator is a passive object that merely | |

* observes the addresses pass to it. It calculates stack distances | |

* of incoming addresses based on the partial sum hierarchy tree | |

* algorithm described by Alamasi et al. | |

* http://doi.acm.org/10.1145/773039.773043. | |

* | |

* A tree structure is maintained and updated at each transaction | |

* (unique or non-unique). The tree is implemented as an STL vector | |

* with layers of the form <map> Each layer in this tree is an | |

* ordered map <uint64_t, Node*>. Nodes are structs which take form | |

* of leaf, intermediate and root nodes. For example, in a tree with 3 | |

* layers, tree[0][5] gives a leaf node pointer for key=5 tree[1][1] | |

* gives an intermediate node pointer for key=1 tree[2][0] gives the | |

* root node in the tree. | |

* | |

* At every transaction a hash-map (aiMap) is looked up to check if | |

* the address was already encountered before. Based on this lookup a | |

* transaction can be termed as unique or non-unique. | |

* | |

* In addition to the normal stack distance calculation, a feature to | |

* mark an old node in the tree is added. This is useful if it is | |

* required to see the reuse pattern. For example, BackInvalidates | |

* from a lower level (e.g. membus to L2), can be marked (isMarked | |

* flag of Node set to True). Then later if this same address is | |

* accessed (by L1), the value of the isMarked flag would be | |

* True. This would give some insight on how the BackInvalidates | |

* policy of the lower level affect the read/write accesses in an | |

* application. | |

* | |

* There are two functions provided to interface with the calculator: | |

* 1. pair<uint64_t, bool> calcStackDistAndUpdate(Addr r_address, | |

* bool addNewNode) | |

* At every unique transaction a new leaf node is added at tree[0](leaf layer) | |

* and linked to the layer above (if addNewNode is True). The sums of all | |

* the intermediate nodes is updated till the root. The stack-distance is | |

* returned as a Constant representing INFINITY. | |

* | |

* At every non-unique transaction the tree is traversed from the | |

* leaf at the returned index to the root, the old node is deleted | |

* from the tree, and the sums (to the right are collected) and | |

* decremented. The collected sum represets the stack distance of the | |

* found node. If this node was marked then a bool flag set to True | |

* is returned with the stack_distance. During this operation a node | |

* is discarded at the leaf layer always. Moreover during the | |

* traversal upwards using the updateSum() method, if an intermediate | |

* node is found with no children connected to it, then that is | |

* discarded too. | |

* | |

* The return value of this function is a pair representing the | |

* stack_distance and the value of the marked flag. | |

* | |

* 2. pair<uint64_t , bool> calcStackDist(Addr r_address, bool mark) | |

* This is a stripped down version of the above function which is used to | |

* just inspect the tree, and mark a leaf node (if mark flag is set). The | |

* functionality to add a new node is removed. | |

* | |

* At every unique transaction the stack-distance is returned as a constant | |

* representing INFINITY. | |

* | |

* At every non-unique transaction the tree is traversed from the | |

* leaf at the returned index to the root, and the sums (to the right) | |

* are collected. The collected sum represets the stack distance of | |

* the found node. | |

* | |

* This function does NOT Modify the stack. (No node is added or | |

* deleted). It is just used to mark a node already created and get | |

* its stack distance. | |

* | |

* The return value of this function is a pair representing the stack | |

* distance and the value of the marked flag. | |

* | |

* The table below depicts the usage of the Algorithm using the functions: | |

* pair<uint64_t Stack_dist, bool isMarked> calcStackDistAndUpdate | |

* (Addr r_address, bool addNewNode) | |

* pair<uint64_t Stack_dist, bool isMarked> calcStackDist | |

* (Addr r_address, bool mark) | |

* | |

* | Function | Arguments |Return Val |Use For| | |

* |calcStackDistAndUpdate|r_address, True|I/SD,False |A,GD,GM| | |

* |calcStackDistAndUpdate|r_address,False|SD,prevMark|D,GD,GM| | |

* |calcStackDist |r_address,False|SD,prevMark| GD,GM| | |

* |calcStackDist |r_address, True|SD,prevMark| GD,GM| | |

* | |

* (*A: Allocate an address in stack, if old entry present then it is deleted, | |

* *U: Delete old-address from stack, no new entry is added | |

* *GD: Get-Stack distance of an address, | |

* *GM: Get value of Mark flag, indicates if that address has been touched | |

* before, | |

* *I: stack-distance = infinity, | |

* *SD: Stack Distance | |

* *r_address: address to be added, *prevMark: value of isMarked flag | |

* of the Node) | |

* | |

* Invalidates refer to a type of packet that removes something from | |

* a cache, either autonoumously (due-to cache's own replacement | |

* policy), or snoops from other caches which invalidate something | |

* inside our cache. | |

* | |

* Usage | Function to use |Typical Use | | |

* Add new entry |calcStackDistAndUpdate|Read/Write Allocate | | |

* Delete Old Entry |calcStackDistAndUpdate|Writebacks/Cleanevicts| | |

* Dist.of Old entry|calcStackDist |Cleanevicts/Invalidate| | |

* | |

* Node Balancing: The tree structure is maintained by an | |

* updateTree() operation called when an intermediate node is | |

* required. The update operation is roughly categorized as a root | |

* update or intermediate layer update. When number of leaf nodes | |

* grow over a power of 2 then a new layer is added at the top of the | |

* tree and a new root node is initialized. The old node at the lower | |

* layer is connected to this. In an intermediate node update | |

* operation a new intermediate node is added to the required layer. | |

* | |

* Debugging: Debugging can be enabled by setting the verifyStack flag | |

* true. Debugging is implemented using a dummy stack that behaves in | |

* a naive way, using STL vectors (i.e each unique address is pushed | |

* on the top of an STL vector stack, and SD is returned as | |

* Infinity. If a non unique address is encountered then the previous | |

* entry in the STL vector is removed, all the entities above it are | |

* pushed down, and the address is pushed at the top of the stack). | |

* | |

* A printStack(int numOfEntitiesToPrint) is provided to print top n entities | |

* in both (tree and STL based dummy stack). | |
