This paper is concerned with the analysis of program address trace data in a demand paged computer system having a three level staging hierarchy. Our primary objective is to explore the data both graphically and numerically, using methods that may be useful when other data traces become available. A secondary objective has been to fit plausible point-process type models to the data. It is believed that the present approach, combining data-analytic procedures with probability modeling, will prove useful in understanding program behavior and thus aid in the rational design of complex computer systems.
