In popularity aware prefetching [14] technique which is using the users access patterns to prefetch the data segments.
To further improve performance, use prefetching programming constructs (as and when and if they are developed by the programming language community) to prefetch the data before their use.
Such a fitted function can be used to analytically determine the optimal prefetch policy using a cost and benefit model; see, for instance, Smith [1978].
The idea behind next-N-line prefetching [Smith 1978; 1982] is to prefetch the N sequential lines following the one currently being fetched by the CPU.
The conservative strategy incurs the same faults as Belady's optimal paging algorithm [Belady 1966], but starts prefetch operations at the earliest possible point in time.
if test then prefetch x do i = 1, N do j = 1, a(i) .
Improvements include improved prefetch efficiency to reduce instruction pipeline stalls, increased buffer size for each instruction, grouping of cache requests and native FP16 / INT16 support.
Access of archived images will be via Digisonics DICOM Query & Retrieve with Prefetch module.
It beats the usual DICOM pull or prefetch technology, and it works well with our workflow.
Many of these cache misses can be avoided if we augment the demand fetch policy of the cache with a data prefetch operation.
For instance, the prefetch and poststore primitives of the KSR-2 [Kendall Square Research 1992] implement user-initiated data movement on top of the underlying consistency protocols.
Under this scheme, the cache would prefetch the next N sequential lines after the line currently being executed.
