Statistics on the Number of SPECfp Loops Amenable to Our Analysis (#L refers to the number of loops.
Overall, the loop statistics show that scientific loop nests are mostly simple and regular, and we can analyze, absolutely or parametrically, a significant number of loops, approximately 70% of the total number of loops found in the SPECfp benchmarks.
We first illustrate how the CMEs are analyzed to drive this optimization with a loop nest from alvinn program, a SPECfp benchmark.
