You have been hired by a cloud computing company that deploys thousands of servers at each of its data centers. They have recently heard that it would be worthwhile to handle a page fault at server A by reading the page from the RAM memory of some other server rather than its local disk drive.

  1. How could that be done?
  2. Under what conditions would the approach be worthwhile? Be feasible?

We consider a program which has the two segments shown below consisting of instructions in segment $0,$ and read/write data in segment $1.$ Segment $0$ has read/execute protection, and segment $1$ has just read/write protection. The memory system is a demand- paged virtual memory system ... $16$ Fetch from segment $1,$ page $4,$ offset $28$ Jump to location in segment $1,$ page $3,$ offset $32$

It has been observed that the number of instructions executed between page faults is directly proportional to the number of page frames allocated to a program. If the available memory is doubled, the mean interval between page faults is also doubled. Suppose that a normal instruction ... which time it gets $15,000$ page faults, how long would it take to run if twice as much memory were available?

Write a program that simulates a toy paging system that uses the $\text{WSClock}$ algorithm. The system is a toy in that we will assume there are no write references (not very realistic), and process termination and creation are ignored (eternal life). The ... per $1000$ memory references. Explain what is needed to extend the program to handle a page reference stream that also includes writes.
