Abstract: In this report, we describe the collection of file system traces from three different environments. By using the auditing system to collect traces on client machines, we are able to get detailed traces with minimal kernel changes. We then present results of traffic analysis on the traces, contrasting them with those from previous studies. Based on these results, we argue that file systems must optimize disk layout for good read performance.
