Abstract

This project deals with the performance analysis of the Linux buffer cache while running an Oracle OLTP workload. The Linux buffer cache was studied and tests were conducted to gather buffer cache hit rates and test run times. The results of this analysis have lead to a better understanding of the complex operations of this system and may help to inspire further research on this topic.
