Sprite Traces
The software for opening these traces no longer functions, so they are currently unreadable. Traces were collected from approximately forty workstations connected to four servers. Further information about the traces is available at the Berkeley site, including documentation, software, and sample code. *Please contact us if you successfully read these traces.
These traces are stored in a binary format, code for processing them can be found here and the OS is here. 1991 5 months 218 MB
