i'm profiling an application that consists in a simple web-server
which rely on the splay runtime.
Linux's perf tool, version 3.13.9
I'm using a Linux 3.13.0-24-generic 64-bit machine, ubuntu 1.404 LTS,
running inside a KVM/qemu virtual machine, with 2 GB of Ram and 4
The client is wget, which sends a big chunk (128 MB) of binary data
to the web-server.
I launch the application with: "perf record -g -v lua webserver_splay.lua".
Inspecting the results shows something that I cannot really explain:

heavy entries show).
What is it happening that triggers that many '__memcpy_sse2_unaligned' ?
Can anyone shed some light on this ?
