Runtime Customization of Swap Partition to Improve the Performance of a Number Crunching Algorithm
In this paper, the authors focus on the enhancement of the practical performance of an algorithm and data structures. It provides a way to achieve the effect on performance parameters of operating system. The proposed paper has been done about the performance of a number crunching program (matrix multiplication) by varying the swap area at run time. They feed a C program as input to the system that executes it for different value of swap area and records the performance parameters as real time, system time, CPU utilization, page faults occurs during execution, context switching due to time slice and context switching due to input output etc.
