Addresses suffering from cache misses typically exhibit repetitive patterns due to the temporal locality inherent in the access stream. However, we observe that the number of intervening misses at the last-level cache between the eviction of a particular block and its reuse can be very large, preventing traditional victim caching mechanisms from exploiting this repeating behavior. In this paper, we present Scavenger, a new architecture for last-level caches. Scavenger divides the total storagedoi:10.1109/micro.2007.42 dblp:conf/micro/BasuKKCM07 fatcat:4wuxz6mqcjh4hhywwemfy2x26i
