David Kotz. STARFISH parallel file-system simulator. The basis for my research on disk-directed I/O; used by at least two other research groups, October 1992-1996. Third release.

Abstract: STARFISH is a simulator for experimenting with concepts in parallel file systems. It is based on Eric Brewer's Proteus simulator from MIT, version 3.01, and runs only on (MIPS-based) DECstations. I have used this simulator in experiments for several research papers about disk-directed I/O.
