7.4.6 Cache simulation options
--simulate-cache=<yes|no> [default: no]Specify if you want to do full cache simulation. By default, only instruction read accesses will be profiled.
--simulate-hwpref=<yes|no> [default: no]Specify whether simulation of a hardware prefetcher should be added which is able to detect stream access in the second level cache by comparing accesses to separate to each page. As the simulation can not decide about any timing issues of prefetching, it is assumed that any hardware prefetch triggered succeeds before a real access is done. Thus, this gives a best-case scenario by covering all possible stream accesses.
