Abstract

In this paper, we present results of investigation to study the impact of victim cache and victim tracer on the miss rates due to the LRU block replacement algorithm. A total of three different algorithms were implemented. They include the basic LRU, LRU with victim cache, and LRU with victim tracer. All the algorithms were implemented as a part of a disk cache. For victim cache and victim tracer, a unique priority scheme was used. Extensive simulations were performed on all the algorithms. The results indicate that adding a victim cache or victim tracer does improve the performance.
