Linux Kernel & Library Optimizations Important, but not Android specific Optimization options– Optimize hotspots compiler handwritten assembler– CPU hardware optimizations MMU special instructions Synopsys 20119

Dalvik Virtual Machine “Java” * virtual machine– Register-based architecture (Java VMs are stack machines). Dalvikregisters are typically stored in memory (on the stack, like localvariables in C).– Own bytecode Three virtual machines– Portable: completely C-based, in fact one large switch{} statement witha case x: for every Dalvik opcode.– Fast (a.k.a. MTERP): assembly-coded handlers for every Dalvikopcode, which are aligned on 64 bytes addresses, so that the addressof the handler can be easily calculated from the opcode, saving alookup.– JIT: just-in-time compiler, initially starts as fast/mterp interpreter, but willidentify ‘hot’ traces and pass these to the compiler thread.*Dalvik is a clean-room implementation of Java for copyright reasons. The syntax is similar. Synopsys 201110
