BEAST

BEAST: A buffer replacement algorithm using spatial and temporal locality Efficient buffer management is closely related to system performance. Thus, much research has been performed on various buffer management techniques. However, many of the proposed techniques utilize the temporal locality of access patterns. In spatial database environments, there exists not only the temporal locality but also spatial locality, where the objects in the recently accessed regions will be accessed again in the near future. Thus, in this paper, we present a buffer management technique, called BEAST, which utilizes both the temporal locality and spatial locality in spatial database environments. The experimental results with real-life and synthetic data demonstrate the efficiency of BEAST.
