Hi all, I think the m5op dumpresetstats [delay [period]] should be transparent to the GEM5 multi-core simulation. For example, setting dumpresetstats with different period in the .rcS runscript will only impact the output stats.txt, but the cycle-by-cycle system state transition shouldn't be affected, and therefore the CPU runtime shouldn't be changed.
However, when I run the bodytrack application from Parsec benchmark on a 4-core alpha in FS, I found the time spent in ROI with 1us dumping period and 100us dumping period are 0.143s and 0.105s, respectively. Also, I found the workload distribution among 4 cores is different for the two cases. Any one has any idea about the reason behind? Thanks a lot! Xin
