I have papi on a machine running Linux 2.6 on a Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Quad CPU. I am also using PAPIEX as the interface to PAPI.
My research revolves around load instructions and I was wondering if there's a way to get a count for load instructions.
I look at all the available events using "papiex -l " but none of the event seems to do this. I have L1/L2 misses, accesses, but not pure loads.
Can anyone tell me if there's a way to do this? Or if there's a basic count that can be close to what I need?
P.S. I wrote a simple program with a specified number of loads and tested it on many of the available events to see if any result will be close to the number of loads but I did not find any!
