The focus of this project is on the development of an Informed Caching Environment (ICE) that relies on the cooperation of hardware and software for memory hierarchy management. We believe that a small number of hardware mechanisms can be used by software to efficiently manage the memory hierarchy, and improve overall performance. These mechanisms will complement (rather than replace) existing caching techniques.
