A higher cache hit ratio means higher performance and sustained performance due to cache disruption from other apps/processes.
Further saving system power, the architecture's I-cache way prediction eliminates unnecessary accesses to memory by looking at tag information in the previous clock cycle to access only a single data RAM upon a cache hit.
This makes it possible to improve the cache hit ratio, accelerate device processing, and work towards improving performance.

These rules are designed to discover and respond to NetWare-specific problems such as unavailable servers, server errors, excessive CPU usage, low file cache hit rates, long queue lengths, security issues, low directory space, and more.
AppInternals Xpert leverages a standards-based approach to obtain performance metrics from storage network devices and storage arrays, such as read and write throughput, session and connection errors, and cache hits.
Given that the cache is faster than main memory in fulfilling a processor's memory requests, one clearly needs to maximize the number of cache hits which are the accesses that can be satisfied from the cache.
