The caching of code and data is a common technique used throughout the Windows Operating System in order to improve system and application performance. While System Performance is a difficult subject, this work represents a digestible look at performance by isolating the top fifteen or so ways that caching is used in the Windows 7 Operating System.
Not only are each of the caching techniques described and detailed, but experiments are provided that the reader may use to look further into the performance of their own systems. Numerous free tools are used for these experiments, and the appendix provides an excellent guide to using these tools.
This book represents the culmination of years of research and a series of presentations made by the author in front of audiences around the world.
