Wikipedia


I added a bit of material to the Wikipedia entry on Page replacement algorithms: a bit of history, precleaning, global vs. local replacement, description of LRU degradation for cyclic access patterns, random replacement, links to the modern algorithms, unification of VM with file system cache, etc. Original entry was more or less re-hash of section from Tannenbaum's „Operating Systems“.
