Then the total access time for extracting the datasets from the public cloud is calculated by
Making level 3 cache access to have (s' + s" + s'") access time. Also, any memory access at level 2 must have been checked in level 1.
Note that the replication of a data record would reduce the access time of that data; however, the replication would lengthen the whole broadcast cycle and increase the access time of other records.
Each access time for the "getValue" for only one object is short enough as mentioned above because of a short message length.
Thus, the Optimal algorithm minimizes both the average block access time because it replaces a block accessed furthest in the future and the number of forwards because it chooses local blocks among all blocks accessed equivalently far in the future.
(Osaka, Japan) device has 65-ns access time and crams 35 million transistors and capacitors onto the memory chip.

We notice that the write speeds as well as the write access times are the same across all three runs.
This issue becomes a little confusing, as both of the speed-related performance measures (transfer rate and access time) depend on what type of disc is used in the DVD-ROM drive.
Access time is critical in an application like an encyclopedia, dictionary or database where the drive spends most of its time searching data.
SiSoft Sandra pegs the SSHD at a minor advantage over the normal hard drive both in terms of access time and also read speed.
Raw disk drive performance is normally measured in total random I/Os per second and can surpass 100 I/Os per second as the average access time (average seek, latency and data transfer) is about 10ms per I/O on newer drives.
