The source code and the traces of our publication "I/O Characteristics of Smartphone Applications and Their Implications for eMMC Design (IISWC 2015)" are available now! The source code of the BIOtracer (a trace colloecting tool that can collect I/O informatin from both the block layer and the eMMC driver layer) and the 25 block-level I/O traces from 18 applications (e.g., Email and Twitter) and their combinations (i.e., 7 combo traces) on a Nexus 5 smartphone will be provided upon email request. Please send us an email at email@example.com if you want a copy.
