We perform the first large-scale study of partial disk failures, involving 1.53 million disks. We find that partial disk failures affect a large percentage of disks. We also find that (i) SATA drives have a higher probability of developing partial disk failures and (ii) failures are not independent; failures within the same disk have high spatial and temporal locality.Thus, we use fault injection to determine the failure-handling policies adopted by virtual- memory systems for different ... our type-aware fault-injection experiments on three virtual-memory systems, Linux 2.6.13, FreeBSD 6.0, and Windows XP.
