Next: Code Size Up: A Caching Model ofOperating Previous: Resource Allocation

Evaluation

The Cache Kernel is evaluated from three major standpoints: code size, caching performance, and micro-benchmarks of trapping, signaling and page fault handling. The code size measurements indicate the reduction in size is a benefit of the caching approach while the other measurements indicate that the caching model has not detracted from performance over a conventional kernel structure.
