4.3 Performance Results

As this paper just tries to show that this mechanism is useful to increase the performance of large applications we will only present a selection of all the possible experiments. We will show the effect of the cache size given a cleaning threshold and the effect of this threshold given a cache size. Both parameters should be tuned for each system depending on the hardware and expected load. Anyway, even if the best configuration is not chosen, most reasonable configurations will imply a significant performance improvement.
