Analysis of Exception Data in a Staging Hierachy
MetadataShow full item record
This paper is an analysis of program address trace data in a demand-paged computer system with 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. In addition, plausible point-process type models are fit to the data. Such an approach, combining data-analytic procedures with probability modeling, should prove useful in understanding program behavior and thus will aid in the rational design of complex computer systems.
