Abstract

An algorithm is disclosed that enables a computer system to autonomically and adaptively optimize the amount of space allocated to a circular storage area such that the allocated storage is A. Large enough to contain the largest size active range typically needed but B. Not significantly larger than this, so that large amounts of storage are not wasted.
