The Calibrator is a small C program that is supposed to analyze a computer’s memory system and extract the following parameters

* number of cache levels
* for each cache level size, linesize, access/miss latency
* main memory access latency, number of TLB levels
* for each TLB level capacity, pagesize, TLB miss latency

The Calibrator is a by-product of our work on Main-Memory Databases within the Monet project. The Calibrator is freely available for download and usage, but we kindly ask all users to include a reference to the Calibrator’s home page whenever they refer to the Calibrator or publish calibration results.
