This paper presents a new probabilistic model which describes the way data blocks belonging to a certain file are distributed along the disk in general purpose systems. The distribution type is classified depending on the kind of file system, the file size and the disk occupancy ratio. The resulting algorithm will be used to simulate the access time to the… CONTINUE READING
