The aim of this paper is to explain the paging and real storage management algorithms of VM/SP, and to show how to measure them.

This paper should leave the reader with an understanding of what paging resources are needed to build a "balanced1' VM system. The CPU is but one resource of the VM system and many times is constrained by the paging, storage and I j O systems mentioned here.
