Abstract

Disclosed is a method of catagorizing the EFS and non EFS pages.The core idea of this invention lies in categorizing file segment pages into non EFS pages and EFS pages and providing hints to the LRU algorithm to steal EFS file pages at the end after stealing normal file pages. “EFS file pages will be stolen at the end after stealing the normal file pages but before stealing working storage pages under high load”
