It is possible to run the Jikes RVM (Research Virtual Machine) and the DaCapo benchmarks suite on top of Sniper. The latest Benchmarks release contains all code necessary to do this.

WARNING This setup can be complicated to make it work correctly! Expect to have to experiment to find a right combination of host machine and OS that works for you. In general, AMD machines seem to cause issues. Running on a 32-bit OS, or in a 32-bit changeroot, is preferable over cross-compiling on a 64-bit OS.


  • Compile Sniper in 32-bit mode: by default on a 32-bit host OS, or to cross-compile use
    make SNIPER_TARGET_ARCH=i386
