The performance of set associative caches is analyzed. The method used is to group the cache lines into regions according to their positions in the replacement stacks of a cache, and then to observe how the memory access of a CPU is distributed over these regions. Results from the preserved CPU traces show that the memory accesses are heavily concentrated on the most recently used (MRU) region
