FAQ

Q: I double click on SSDPlayer.jar but nothing happens. What's wrong?
A: First make sure you extracted the zipped distribution files, and are executing from a local directory on your machine. Then make sure you have Java Runtime Environment (JRE) installed on your machine.
Q: I run the HotCold manager with the Zipf workload, but all the pages are red. Why?
A: The workload generator does not generate temperature tags, so the HotCold manager assumes the default (hottest) temperature for all pages. You can use the Zipf_w_Temperatures.hotcold sample trace file instead.
Q: How did you create the online demos?
A: The demos on this page were recorded and edited with Camtasia¬ģ. We plan to add a recording option to SSDPlayer in the future.
Q: I have a cool idea how to improve SSDPlayer, can you do it?
A: SSDPlayer is an ongoing, open source project. Feel free to contact us to find out if someone is working on something similar. You can also go directly to the development tree and add features yourself!
