QUAD (Quantitative Usage Analysis of Data) consists of several tools that provide a comprehensive overview of the memory access behavior of an application. The primary goal is the detection of the actual data dependencies at the function-level.
I believe this toolset is useful for both embedded systems developers as well as supercomputer application writers. It is meant to provide insight into the data flows inside an application based on the logical structure developers have created. And without being aware of the consequences when you want to execute the code on heterogeneous multicore platforms
If Arash can be considered the father of this project, I'd like to think of my self as the favourite uncle. This project can enable you to analyze your applications thoroughly, especially regarding data usage and memory consumption.
No one is expecting me not to love my own child, right? :-)
