Demotion-based exclusive caching through demote buffering

Jiesheng Wu, Pete Wyckoff, Dhabaleswar K. Panda
2003 Proceedings of the international workshop on Storage network architecture and parallel I/Os - SNAPI '03  
In this paper, we propose a DEMOTE buffering mechanism over storage networks to reduce the visible costs of DEMOTE operations and provides more flexibility for optimizations.  ...  A maximum speedup of 1.4x over the original DEMOTE approach is achieved for some workloads. 1.08-1.15x speedups are achieved for two real-life workloads.  ...  Wong for his simulator and for his answers to our questions on the DE-MOTE exclusive caching.
