The operating system's virtual memory management policy is increasingly important to application performance because gains in processing speed are far outstripping improvements in disk latency. Indeed, large applications can gain large performance bene ts from using a virtual memory policy tuned to their speci c memory access patterns rather than a general policy provided by the operating system. As a result, a number of schemes have been proposed to allow for application-speci c extensions to… CONTINUE READING
