Ariel - simulate real applications in SST12 May 2017
SST simulator is an event based simulator. To simulate real applications, we need to use externel module (PIN tool) to convert the instructions to a set of SST events. This work is doen by the Ariel component.
The current version (7.0.7) of Ariel only support pin-2.14. Because of the ABI compatibility issue, I am not able to run it in Ubuntu 16.04. The only solution I find is to install Ubuntu 14.04 instead.
Download Pin Tool
After the installation of Ubuntu 14.04, download the pin tool:
wget http://software.intel.com/sites/landingpage/pintool/downloads/pin-2.14-71313-gcc.4.4.7-linux.tar.gz tar xf pin-2.14-71313-gcc.4.4.7-linux.tar.gz mv pin-2.14-71313-gcc.4.4.7-linux ~/local
Configure sst elements
./configure --prefix=$SST_ELEMENTS_HOME --with-sst-core=$SST_CORE_HOME --with-pin=$HOME/local/pin-2.14-71313-gcc.4.4.7-linux
Then make and install.
