I am are looking for traces of virtual memory addresses accessed by programs during execution. I wish to use these traces to evaluate different paging algorithms and in particular, the working set model.

Linux being open source, you can adapt it to suit your wishes for this experiment.

I could do that, but that would be less credible as I am a student. Now, if I could get some authentic and reliable traces, I could state my result more authoritatively.

Not only do you have the traces you want but you can explain how they were created.

It's possible you didn't want to tell all. Such as you want to do this work without the usual year of time to invest.
