ABSTRACT
In modern systems, developers are often unable to modify
the underlying operating system. To build services in such
an environment, we advocate the use of gray­box techniques.
When treating the operating system as a gray­box, one recog­
nizes that not changing the OS restricts, but does not com­
pletely obviate, both the information one can acquire about
the internal state of the OS and the control one can impose
on the OS. In this paper, we develop and investigate three
gray­box Information and Control Layers (ICLs) for deter­
mining the contents of the file­cache, controlling the layout of
