4.5 Advanced Optimization Control

The following sections describe command qualifiers that the advanced user may want to use for maximum performance.

Some of these qualifiers (/cacheline , /cachesize , /dpregisters , /fpregisters, /setassociativity ) set parameters that KAP uses to optimize memory usage. Knowing how much data can be kept in fast memory (cache or arithmetic registers) and the costs of moving data in the memory hierarchy, enable better optimization of memory reference patterns. The /scalaropt=3 and /roundoff=3 qualifiers are required for memory management to be enabled.
