I'm going through 'Operating Concepts' by Silberschatz, Galvin and Gagne (The Dinosaur Book) and it mentions the Second-Chance Algorithm (not enhanced) as an improvement on the FIFO replacement algorithm.
My question is, is there ever a case where this algorithm would perform better than, say, the Least Recently Used algorithm or even something like the Farthest-in-Future Algorithm? The book describes how the algorithm works but doesn't offer a lot of information on when it would be useful, other than just in improving 'FIFO'.
To add to this, is there ever a case where 'second chance' would out preform LRU? I'm assuming the answer is yes, as no algorithm is perfect for every situation.
