Title: Queueing Analyses of Secondary Storage Devices
Authors: E.G. Coffman, Jr. and M. Hofri
Abstract: Secondary storage devices constitute an important. often critical, part of a computing system. Programs in the machine access these devices to record (write) or retrieve (read) data, and use them as stable repositories for long-term files, or as buffers and working, storage for short-term files. The correct and efficient use of these devices raises numerous engineering problems dealing with different aspects of their operation.
