A driver-layer caching policy for removable storage devices
Yuan-Hao Chang, Ping-Yi Hsu, Yung-Feng Lu, Tei-Wei Kuo
Article No.: 1
The growing popularity of flash memory is expected to draw attention to the limitations of file-system performance over flash memory. This work was motivated by the modular designs of operating system components such as bus and device drivers. A...
This article presents a new Fast Hash-based File Existence Checking (FHFEC) method for archiving systems. During the archiving process, there are many submissions which are actually unchanged files that do not need to be re-archived. In this...
PRE-BUD: Prefetching for energy-efficient parallel I/O systems with buffer disks
Adam Manzanares, Xiao Qin, Xiaojun Ruan, Shu Yin
Article No.: 3
A critical problem with parallel I/O systems is the fact that disks consume a significant amount of energy. To design economically attractive and environmentally friendly parallel I/O systems, we propose an energy-aware prefetching strategy...
