Abstract

Methods and apparatus to identify memory communications are described. In one embodiment, an access to a stack pointer is monitored, e.g., to maintain a stack tracker structure. The information stored in the stack tracker structure may be utilized to generate a distance value corresponding to a relative distance between a load instruction and a previous store instruction.
