  • Publication number: 20210326272
    Abstract: A method configures a cache to implement a LRU management technique. The cache has N entries divided into B buckets. Each bucket has a number of entries equal to P entries*M vectors, wherein N=B*P*M. Any P entry within any M vector is ordered using an in-vector LRU ordering process. Any entry within any bucket is ordered in LRU within the vectors and buckets. The LRU management technique moves a found entry to a first position within a same M vector, responsive to a lookup for a specified key, and permutes the found entry and a last entry in a previous M vector, responsive to the found entry already being in the first position within a vector and the same one of the M vectors not being a first vector in the bucket in the moving step.
