Auspex File System Traces

These traces follow the NFS activity of 236 clients serviced by an Auspex file server over the period of 1 week during late 1993. They were gathered by Cliff Mather by snooping Ethernet packets on four subnets. The clients are the desktop workstations of the University of California at Berkeley Computer Science Division.
