DiskSims Beta v1.1 released. New features include:
– Added Rotational latency support. The simulation is more realistic now accounting for spin time. This feature can be optionally turned ON or OFF by the defining or un-defining the RLATENCY directive in the code.
– Manual request entry supports rotational latency by allowing request block numbers to be entered in addition to cylinder numbers.
– Ability to use multiple simulator versions (builds). For example, you can compile the (schedule) simulator engine with your own modified version of the SSTF algorithm and compare the results with the original SSTF version. DiskSims displays the list of executable simulators that you can use.
– Few other minor fixes
