When picking a cache replacement policy for file systems, LRU (Least Recently Used) has always been the obvious choice, because of the temporal locality found in programs and data. However, in the case of Sun NFS servers much of the locality is filtered out by the client cache. It has been conjectured that this filtering of locality by the client caches render LRU ineffective as a server cache replacement policy. This study disproves the conjecture by simulating a NFS server cache with realdoi:10.1145/230908.230913 fatcat:7vqhmrrakzeltmfwbyqoncmqsi
