OP-TEE has a pager which can use DDR as backing store to allow usage of more virtual memory than available system RAM. This session will explain what the pager is and how it’s implemented and which limitations it has. We will cover how the binary is partitioned to keep code needed by the pager separated from the rest of the code which is paged. With the pager it’s possible postpone allocation of stacks with the result of getting better performance when less stack is used while still being able to function with degraded performance when more stack is used.

Performance Profiling and Debugging Tools for Server-class Applications WebinarSaturday, June 27, 2020
Linaro is hosting an Arm webinar: Abstract: "With the growing availability of Arm-based servers, there is an increasing need for native application development - especially when migrating from another architecture. Users want to fix and optimize software quickly to provide fast, robust and cost-efficient services. Tools are key to overcome challenges of software development. During this webinar, we will introduce Arm Forge, a professional toolkit for debugging and profiling on Linux Arm servers. We will give an overview of the tools' features and demonstrate their capabilities for sequential and parallel programming." This webinar is open to anyone to register and is free. July 21 session will be held at 16:00 CEST in English August 4 session will be held at 10:00 CST in Mandarin* https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/performance-profiling-and-debugging-tools-for-server-class-applications-tickets-110120419138New
High Performance Computing (HPC), Reflection and Forward-looking.Friday, June 26, 2020
In 2018 we discussed the first step for ARM into High Performance Computing (HPC). Since then, Linaro has been working to increase awareness of the successes within the High Performance Computing ARM ecosystem. HPC now forms a key part of our activities, plus an association with Fugaku - the No.1 Supercomputer in the world (according to the Top500 bi-annual review).
