I have been making slow progress on my project proposal – some times it has felt like a mirage: the further I go the further away the real target seems to be.
But I am getting there – though I seem to have written five pages of dense type explaining how Linux paging developed and works without actually describing any problems or what I intend to do about them.
Well, the plan now – and I am writing this down as an aide memoire/encouragement to actually do it is to move on from where I am now – describing the 2Q-like LRU lists in the Linux kernel, to some of the problems, describing the alternative “working set” approach (eg as used in Windows NT and before than VMS) and then some of the strategies and tactics that could be used in Linux to apply it.
