Cooperative caches offer huge amounts of caching memory that is not always used as well as it could be. We might find blocks in the cache that have not been requested for many hours. These blocks will hardly improve the performance of the system while the buffers they occupy could be better used to speedup the I/O operations. In this paper, we present a family of simple prefetching algorithms that increase the file-system performance significantly. Furthermore, we also present a way to make any… CONTINUE READING
