I am using Intel Pintool BBLs to count the total number of static and dynamic basic blocks.
The below is the distinguish between static vs dynamic basic blocks (bbls):
A dynamic basic block is defined as a sequential run of instructions that starts with an instruction that is a target of a taken branch and ends with the first taken branch in sequence. Thus, one dynamic basic block may contain one or more static basic blocks that are defined as follows: a sequential run of instructions that starts with an instruction that is a target of a taken branch and ends with the first branch in sequence
Intel Pintool User Manual defines their basic block (BBLs) as:
Pin breaks the trace into basic blocks, BBLs. A BBL is a single entrance, single exit sequence of instructions. Branches to the middle of a bbl begin a new trace and hence a new BBL
I am not clear if Pintool BBLs is static or dynamic bbls?
