In a path-breaking paper last year Pat and Betty O’Neil and Gerhard Weikum pro posed a self-tuning improvement to the Least Recently Used (LRU) buffer management algorithm[l5]. Their improvement is called LRU/k and advocates giving priority to buffer pages baaed on the kth most recent access. (The standard LRU algorithm is denoted LRU/l according to this terminology.) If Pl’s kth most recent access is more more recent than P2’s, then Pl will be replaced after P2. Intuitively, LRU/k for k > 1 is…

Efficient Pre-fetch and Pre-release Based Buffer Cache Management for Web Applications
TLDR
This paper proposes an improved LRU buffer cache management scheme using pre-fetching and pre-releasing based on spatial locality that is as simple as the LRU scheme and retains its characteristics.
Cost-Based Buffer Management Algorithm for Flash Database Systems
TLDR
An adaptive replacement policy (CBLRU), which assigns to each page a weighted value that combines the IO cost and the influence of pages staying in the buffer, is proposed, which is very efficient when being used for buffer replacement.
Replacement Algorithm for Buffer Management in the Omega Parallel Database System *
TLDR
A theoretical-probability model for formal description of LFU-K algorithm is proposed, which provides significant improvement over conventional buffering algorithms for the shared-nothing database systems.
BP-Wrapper: A System Framework Making Any Replacement Algorithms (Almost) Lock Contention Free
TLDR
A system framework, called BP-Wrapper, that (almost) eliminates lock contention for any replacement algorithm without requiring any changes to the algorithm, and uses batching and prefetching techniques to reduce lock contention and to retain high hit ratio.
A Fuzzy Adaptive Algorithm for Fine Grained Cache Paging
TLDR
A novel Fuzzy Adaptive Page Replacement algorithm (FAPR) is proposed that applies fuzzy inference technique based on an adaptive rule-base and online priority control and enhances the performance in comparison to the commonly used algorithms such as, LRU and LFU.
A General Approach to Scalable Buffer Pool Management
TLDR
A system framework, called BP-Wrapper, is designed that eliminates almost all lock contention without requiring any changes to an existing algorithm, and uses a dynamic batching technique and a prefetching technique to reduce lock contention and to retain high hit ratio.
Window‐LRFU: a cache replacement policy subsumes the LRU and window‐LFU policies
TLDR
Experimental results show that the Window‐LRFU policy outperforms LRFU and has at least competitive performance than other classical algorithms.
An optimality proof of the LRU-K page replacement algorithm
TLDR
It is proved, under the assumptions of the independent reference model, that LRU-K is optimal, given the times of the (up to) most recent references to each disk page, and no other algorithm making decisions to keep pages in a memory buffer holding n pages based on this infomation can improve on the expected number of I/Os to access pages over theLRU-<italic>K</italic>.
Performance Analysis of LRU Page Replacement Algorithm with Reference to different Data Structure
TLDR

Exploiting inheritance and structure semantics for effective clustering and buffering in an object-oriented DBMS
TLDR
A run-time clustering algorithm is proposed whose initial evaluation indicates that system response time can be improved by a factor of 200% when the read/write ratio is high and there is little performance distinction between limiting reclustering to a few I/Os or many, so a low limit on I/O appears to be acceptable.

TLDR
Using a user's local storage capabilities to cache data at the user's site would improve the response time of user queries albeit at the cost ofurring the overhead required in maintaining multiple copies.
