This is interesting and expected for evenly distributed request patterns. How about for more typical request patterns that follow power-law distributions? I would guess that it'd lead to much fewer page faults. I could write some math but does the benchmark tool let you choose a distribution of keys, which would help check that type of pattern?

Great analysis BTW.
