Abstract:

This document describes the design and implementation of an automatic data migration system for the 370168 computer at Weapons Research Establishment. The system simulates a volume of disk storage far greater than that actually available by maintaining an archive of infrequently used datasets on magnetic tape. These datasets can be returned to disk when required for further processing. Several supporting procedures are used in conjunction with migration to allow more effective use of real disk space and these are mentioned. Finally some operational statistics are quoted and several enhancements proposed. Author
