On Monday, March 28th (TOMORROW), at 18:30, Haifux will gather to hear 
Guy Keren talk about

The story of alice and bob - the I/O requests (part II)


In this story, we'll follow the life story of alice - a file-systemized 
I/O request, and bob - a raw-device I/O request, from their birth, until 
they reach heaven (the disk or the USB camera or...). In addition, we 
will cover some system parameters that affect I/O requests, the buffer 
cache, disk I/O schedulers and tools used to track and count I/O 
(including - why is process-based I/O accounting so tricky).

Updated slides are available for view and download at 


We meet in Taub (CS Faculty) building, room 6. For instructions see: 

Attendance is free, and you are all invited!
