Abstract

A method is described for efficient handling of sequential disk requests issued to the Extended ESDI adapter care. This method provides for significantly greater performance than was obtained by the prior art implementation. The prior method did not address a significant function with respect to handling read/write requests that build up on the device driver input queue.
