Abstract: Network computer is an interactive device in thin-client computing environment, and studying the behavior of typical applications on this platform is important to the microprocessor design and system development. Based on PKUnity network computer platform, this paper analyzes the d-TLB miss rate and performance penalty of many typical applications under different d-TLB structures and page sizes. The experiment results explain the advantage of TLB design in PKUnity SoC which satisfies the requirement of lower power and low complexity.
