Adaptive block rearrangement
Sedat Akyürek, Kenneth Salem
Pages: 89-121
DOI: 10.1145/201045.201046
An adaptive technique for reducing disk seek times is described. The technique copies frequently referenced blocks from their original locations to reserved space near the middle of the disk. Reference frequencies need not be known in advance....

A simple and efficient bus management scheme that supports continuous streams
Saied Hosseini-Khayat, Andreas D. Bovopoulos
Pages: 122-140
DOI: 10.1145/201045.201048
An efficient bandwidth management and access arbitration scheme for an I/O bus in a multimedia workstation is presented. It assumes that a multimedia workstation consists of a number of processing modules which are interconnected by a packet...

Implications of hierarchical N-body methods for multiprocessor architectures
Jaswinder Pal Singh, John L. Hennessy, Anoop Gupta
Pages: 141-202
DOI: 10.1145/201045.201050
To design effective large-scale multiprocessors, designers need to understand the characteristics of the applications that will use the machines. Application characteristics of particular interest include the amount of communication relative to...
