WHISPER is being presented at NVMW '17.
WHISPER, or Wisconsin-HPL Suite for Persistence is a comprehensive benchmark
suite for emerging persistent memory technologies. Persistent Memory (PM) is
non-volatile memory accessed with byte addressability (not just blocks) at low
latency (not I/O bus) via regular memory instructions (not system calls).
WHISPER captures unique properties of PM applications establishing a firm
foundation for the design of future hardware and software systems for
persistent memory. It covers a wide variety of interfaces to PM including
custom PM key-value stores Echo
and Redis, a PM database N-store, PM transactional libraries
Mnemosyne and NVML and a PM filesystem PMFS. We developed Eliza and a framework, to
analyze WHISPER applications which can easily be used to analyze future PM
interfaces. Please read our paper, click on the links above for our code, or
