Sim-SODA (SOftware Dependability Analysis) is a unified simulation framework for estimating microprocessor reliability in the presence of soft errors. Originally designed for in-lab use, Sim-SODA is being released to the general public and can provide researchers with highly accurate estimates of the reliability of different hardware structures across different workloads in the form of the metric AVF (Architectural Vulnerability Factor). Built on top of the Sim-Alpha platform, Sim-SODA provides some substantial improvements to previous research in this area:
  • Unified approach for modeling hardware features
  • Offers high levels of granularity
  • Covers more hardware structures, in more detail
  • Open source and free license
  • Provides AVF estimations for hardware including:
    • Instruction Queue
    • Load/Store Queue
    • Reorder Buffer
    • Register File
    • Data Level 1 Cache
    • Translation Lookaside Buffer
    • Victim Buffer
    • Function Unit
