PinPlay is a Pin-based tool for capturing one execution instance of a program and by allowing other Pintools such as Sniper to run off the captured execution. This allows for repeatable replay and simulation of applications. Since version 4.2, Sniper can replay PinPlay traces for single-threaded applications -- giving it the same functionality as SIFT traces but with a much smaller disk footprint. PinPlay also integrates the SimPoints workflow for reducing applications to short representable traces.

PinPlay will be released at the PinPoints HPCA workshop on February 23. More information about running Sniper with PinPlay will be posted here by that date.
