    Among the performance characteristics of programs, the patterns of memory references they generate have the unique property of being totally irrelevant in a non-virtual memory context and perhaps the most important aspect of program behavior in a virtual memory system. It is because of their importance in the latter case that the referencing behavior is so often referred to as the "behavior" par e... View full abstract»

    During the past several years a considerable amount of effort has gone into the measurement, analysis, and modeling of program behavior. Most of the work either assumes the existence of a reference string, which is then used in various ways, or attempts to produce a model for the process by which such reference strings are generated. With very few exceptions the reference strings that have been me... View full abstract»

    To analyze or simulate an operating/computer system, one must construct a model of the programs executing within the system. Many recent analyses, particularly queueing models, have used mathematically convenient program models. For example, in one popular model the times between page faults are assumed to be exponentially distributed and independent. However, such a program model is inaccurate, w... View full abstract»

    No application programmer writes machine-language programs–i.e., strings of ones and zeroes. That primitive pursuit has long been reserved for those few who create the very first modules of a software system for new hardware. Instead, programmers make use of a wide spectrum of symbolic programming languages, ranging from assembly code to high-level languages such as Fortran, Cobol, and the A... View full abstract»

    Virtual memory is one of the major concepts that has evolved in computer architecture over the last decade. It has had a great impact on the design of new computer systems since it was first introduced by the designers of the Atlas computer in 1962. A virtual memory is usually divided into blocks of contiguous locations to allow an efficient mapping of the logical addresses into the physical addre... View full abstract»

    The practical objective of program behavior studies is to enhance program and system performance. On the one hand, the knowledge resulting from these studies may be useful in designing new programs and new virtual memory systems that are capable of levels of performance higher than those currently achievable. On the other hand, such knowledge may often be employed to increase the performance of ex... View full abstract»

    Genesis of survey. During the past six months, a cross section of computer professionals, including most of the chairmen of the Computer Society's technical committees and several other society members, was interviewed with the objective of summarizing their assessment of the major developments in computer technology. (The names of those consulted are listed on p. 75.) Attention was concentrated o... View full abstract»
