Super-pages have been wandering around for more than a decade. There are some particular operating systems that support super-paging and there are some recent research papers that show interesting ideas about how to intelligently integrate them. However, nowadays operating system's page replacement mechanism still uses the old CLOCK algorithm which gives the same priority to small and large pages. In this paper, we show a technique that enhances the page replacement mechanism to an algorithm based on more parameters and is suitable for a super-paging environment.
