3.2. Cycle-based, Round-robin
To support continuous display of an object X, it is partitioned into n equisized blocks: Xo, X1, …, Xn–1, where n is a function of the block size (B) and the size of X. A time period (Tp) is defined as the time required to display a block:
With a multi-disk platform consisting of d disks, the workload of a display should be evenly distributed across the d disks in order to avoid the formation of bottlenecks. Striping , ,  is a technique to accomplish this objective. This technique partitions the d disks into C clusters of disks with each cluster consisting of d disks: . Next, it assigns ...
