Synonyms Cache-aware query processing; Cache-sensitive query processing Definition Query processing algorithms are designed to efficiently exploit the available cache units in the memory hierarchy. Cache-conscious algorithms typically employ knowledge of architectural parameters such as cache size and latency. This knowledge can be used to ensure that the algorithms have good temporal and/or spatial locality on the target platform. Historical Background Between 1980 and 2005, processing speeds

As a result, it is common (at the time of writing) for data accesses to RAM to require several hundred CPU cycles to resolve. Many database workloads have shifted from being I/O bound to being memory/CPUbound as the amount of memory per machine has been increasing. For such workloads, improving the locality of data-intensive operations can have a direct impact on the system's overall performance.
