An investigation of the various cache schemes that are practical for a minicomputer has been found to provide considerable insight into cache organization. Simulations are used to obtain data on the performance and sensitivity of organizational parameters of various writeback and lookahead schemes. Hardware considerations in the construction of the actual cache-minicomputer are also noted and a simple cost/performance analysis is presented.
