AbstractWe present an analysis of a pair of NFS traces of contemporary email and research workloads. We show that although the research workload resembles previously studied workloads, the email workload is quite different. We also perform several new analyses that demonstrate the periodic nature of file system activity, the effect of out-of-order NFS calls, and the strong relationship between the name of a file and its size, lifetime, and access pattern.
