This paper introduces a methodology to reduce the overall simulation time of large benchmarking suites. Previous work shows that it is possible to simulate only small sections of a benchmark's dynamic instruction stream in detail without sacrificing accuracy in simulation results with respect to overall behavior. As benchmarking suites increase in size, many such techniques still require a great deal of simulation time to complete. The methods presented in this paper build on this previous work by converting representative sections of a benchmark's execution into InTrinsically Check-pointed assemblY (ITCY) code that can serve as a replacement for the original benchmark.
