Improving File System Cache Performance Through Reference Pattern Modeling Abstract
Through simulations it can be seen how the actions of file systems are related and how these relationships can be exploited to improve the performance of file system cache. Past research found several issues, model size, adapting to local activity and infinite stream length, that needed to be addressed in order for a reference stream model to be practical and effective in tracking the events of a file system. In this project we will implement predictive caching models within a PC UNIX to provide complete validation of this work.
