Abstract:

The research described in this report centers around the development and application of a general and comprehensive mathematical model of computer systems which use storage hierarchies consisting of 2, 3 or more levels and in which the storage management is carried out automatically i.e. transparent to the user. This model has been implemented in the form of a highly interactive computer program which provides the user with an animated view of the system performance as model parameters are varied. There are approximately 50 independent variables in the model. These variables describe the system architecture, data paths and routing, storage device characteristics, CPU performance, and user program behavior. Author
