Day of the nightmare: "The wife of a commercial artist risks her life to discover the truth about her husband after he is accused of killing a woman. She believes that he could have committed the crime and sets out to prove it after the police are unable to locate a corpus delicti. First she visits her husband's father, a shrink. Just after leaving, she runs into the "corpse" who is very much alive and out to kill her. Fortunately, the wife survives. Unfortunately, her father-in-law isn't so lucky, but before he dies, he recognizes the she-killer as someone he knows all too well." Scream of the butterfly: "In this drama, a jealous man kills his free-spirited lover when she tells him she plans to dump him in favor of her wealthy husband. During the ensuing trial, the man tells his story. It seems the woman married the millionaire, but then needed a lover to fulfill her insatiable need for sex. She left the man because she decided she really did love her husband. This decision came after she made a failed attempt to kill her husband. Now the jury must decide whether the lover should be sent to jail or to an asylum"--All Movie Guide

Disk cache--miss ratio analysis and design considerations by Alan J Smith ( Book )
1 edition published in 1983 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The solution to this problem described and evaluated in this paper is Disk Cache. The idea is to buffer recently used portions of the disk address space in electronic storage. Empirically, it is shown that a large (e.g. 80% to 90%) fraction of all I/O requests are captured by a cache of reasonable (e.g. 8 Mbyte) size. This paper considers a number of design parameters for such a cache (called Cache Disk or Disk Cache), including those that can be examined experimentally (cache location, cache size, migration algorithms, block sizes, etc.) and others (access time, bandwidth, multipathing, technology, consistency, error recovery, etc.) for which we have no relevant data or experiments. We find that disk cache is a powerful means of extending the performance limits of high end computer systems
Machine characterization based on an abstract high level machine by Rafael H Saavedra-Barrera ( Book )
1 edition published in 1989 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Abstract: "Runs of a benchmark or a suite of benchmarks are inadequate to either characterize a given machine or to predict the running time of some benchmark not included in the suite. Further, the observed results are quite sensitive to the nature of the benchmarks, and the relative performance of two machines can vary greatly depending on the benchmarks used. In this paper, we report on a new approach to benchmarking and machine characterization. The idea is to create and use a machine characterizer, which measures the performance of a given system in terms of a Fortran abstract machine. Fortran is used because of its relative simplicity and its wide use for scientific computation
