Tutorial VI Question 1 (1999/00 Examination) Given a disk with 200 tracks (0-199). Suppose it takes 1 time unit to cross a track, and servicing a request (rotational latency + read/write) takes 2 time units. At time 0, the head is at the outermost track (0). Compute the average waiting time for the following three requests using the SCAN algorithm. Request time Requested track 0 15 12 150 130 100 Question 2 (2007/08 Assignment) Two identical files, f 1 and f 2, of 100KiB each are stored on two different disks. The file blocks

Unformatted text preview: s ) of 10 ms and average rotational delay (T r ) of 5 ms. The two disks differ in the organization of their tracks. Each track of disk 1 consists of 32 sectors of 1 KiB each, and each track of disk 2 consists of eight sectors of 4 KiB each. Assume the transfer delay can be modeled as ± ² ³ ´ µ ± ¶ µ · ¸ , where b is the number of bytes to be transferred and N is the number of bytes on a track. How long will it take to sequentially read the two files?...

    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.
