CS 3733 Virtual Memory Problem 1) Assume a machine uses 33-bit virtual addresses and 29-bit physical addresses and is byte-addressable. It uses a 2-level page table with a page size of 512 bytes. All page tables have 32-bit entries. The top level page table entries contain physical addresses. The second level page table entries contain a frame number, a valid bit and 5 bits for protection. The top level page tables and second level page tables are the same size. Give the best answer to each of the following that you can. If you need to make additional assumptions to give an answer, state the assumptions you are making. If the answer is a power of 2, leave it in exponential form. a) How many bits of a virtual address are used for the page offset?

What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
