Among the performance characteristics of programs, the patterns of memory references they generate have the unique property of being totally irrelevant in a non-virtual memory context and perhaps the most important aspect of program behavior in a virtual memory system. It is because of their importance in the latter case that the referencing behavior is so often referred to as the "behavior" par excellence.
