We propose a generic architectural framework, a
run-time system for client/server architectures, which facilitates the
integration, exchange and extension of various prefetching techniques.
To demonstrate the viability of this architecture two prefetching
techniques are incorporated: a predictor-based
technique---which consists of a separate predictor component in the
run-time system---and a code-based technique---which provides
an explicit prefetch statement at the programming interface. Our
quantitative analysis indicates that (static) code-based techniques
are a promising alternative to expensive monitoring-based predictors.
