4.1 Methodology

All the results presented in this paper have been measured on a Pentium II running at 350MHz. The amount of physical memory was 64 Mbytes, and the size of the swap partition was 128Mbytes. This partition was located on a Ultra-SCSI hard disk.

All the measures presented are the average of, at least, 10 executions, in single-user mode, where the best and worst ones have been discarded.
