LOCALITY OF REFERENCE PRINCIPLE:
Principle of "Locality of Reference" use to predict computer interaction patterns. There are two patterns shown as follows:
a) Spatial locality of reference
b) Temporal locality of reference
a) SPATIAL LOCALITY OF REFERENCE:
In this pattern devices are likely to interact with other computers that are located
b) TEMPORAL LOCALITY OF REFERENCE:
In this pattern computers are likely to interact with the same computers repeatedly. Thus LANs are very effective because of spatial locality of reference. Temporal locality of reference can give insight into which devices could be on a LAN.
