Back-to-Basics Weekend Reading - The Working Set Model for Program Behavior
This weekend we go back in time all the way to the beginning of operating systems research. In the first SOSP conference in 1967 there were several papers that laid the foundation for the development of structured operating systems. There was the of course the lauded paper on the THE operating system by Dijkstra but for this weekend I picked the paper on memory locality by Peter Denning as this work laid the groundwork for the development of virtual memory systems.
