Traditional operating systems use magnetic disks as paging devices even though the cost of a disk transfer measured in processor cycles contin ues to increase In this paper we explore the use of remote main memory for paging We describe the de sign implementation and evaluation of a pager that uses main memory of remote workstations as a faster than disk paging device and provides reliability in case of single workstation failures Our pager has been implemented as a block de vice driver linked… CONTINUE READING
