This sample code accompanies "TN 1174: Optimization Strategies for the Mac OS". The Cacheline Optimizer evaluates cacheline usage. Given a stride value, it will simulate the cache utilization for the L1 and L2 caches on an iMac, as well as giving an approximate idea of the TLB usage. It gives the percentage utilization as well as how many iterations before you will begin to evict data from the cache. CBuffFileStream demonstrates the implementation of a buffered file system on top of the Mac OS file system. Requirements: Optimization Strategies for the Mac sOS Technote. Keywords: Optimization, buffered file system, cache, cacheline, Optimization TN Demos
