System and reverse inclusion in multilevel cache hierarchy


A processing system having multilevel cache employs techniques for identifying and selecting valid candidate cache lines for eviction from a lower level cache of an inclusive cache hierarchy, so as to reduce invalidations resulting from an eviction of a cache line in a lower level cache that also resides in a higher level cache. In response to an eviction trigger for a lower level cache, a cache controller identifies candidate cache lines for eviction from the cache lines residing in the lower level cache based on the replacement policy.
