Abstract : The paper investigates the implementation of the page fault frequency (PFF) replacement algorithm as the mechanism for selecting and replacing pages of programs loaded into the main memory of a multiprocessing, multiprogrammed computer system. The frequency at which an executing program requires a page of virtual memory, the PFF, provides a basis for judging the real memory requirements of the program. Operating difficulties of PFF that reduce its usefulness in a time-shared computer system (Michigan Terminal System) are discussed, and a means of implementing the algorithm is proposed. (Author)
