Varying Main Memory


The above graph shows HINT run by varying only the main memory and leaving the rest of the configuration the same. With this graph, one can find out the performance gain by adding x amount of extra memory. The other thing to be noted above is that with the same cache and the same amount of minimum main memory (128 MB), the left portion of the HINT curves are almost identical.
