One of the most common techniques to evaluate the performance of a computer I/O subsystem performance has been found on detailed simulation models including specific features of storage devices like disk geometry, zone splitting, caching, read-ahead buffers and request reordering. However, as soon as a new technological innovation is added, those models need to be reworked to include new devices making difficult to have general models up to date. Another alternative is modeling a storage device… CONTINUE READING
