Title: Mean field models for SSD garbage collection
Time: 14:00
Location: Conference Room, building Alpha
Type: Research result
Speaker: Benny Van Houdt
Abstract: In this talk we discuss some mean field models for a broad class of garbage collection algorithms for flash-based solid state drives (SSDs) and as well as the insights they provide. We start with a basic introduction on mean field models and SSDs. Next we take a detailed look at the mean field model in the most basic setting (uniform random writes) and discuss its implications. Finally, if time permits, some of the new insights provided by more advanced models with hot and cold data or hot data identification will be presented.
