A Library for Synthetic Multithread Trace Generation

Wright, Rebecca N.



Abstract: Gathering a large and varied set of disk traces is often difficult. Furthermore, gathered disk traces are not necessarily representative of the full space of possible traces and may be hard to scale. We present a method for generating synthetic disk traces that allows for better coverage and control of an enormous trace space. To more closely model the real world, out traces consist of multiple concurrent threads, each corresponding to I/O requests made by a single process.
