Basics of caches - computer architecture, Computer Engineering

Basics of Caches:

"The caches are situated on basis of blocks, the shortest amount of data which may be copied between 2 adjacent levels at a time.

"If requested data by the processor is present in some the upper level block

 Then it is known as a hit.
