    The amount of genomic data available for study is increasing at a rate similar to that of Moore's law. This deluge of data is challenging bioinformaticians to develop newer, faster and better algorithms for analysis and examination of this data. The growing availability of large scale computing grids coupled with high-performance networking is challenging computer scientists to develop better, fas... View full abstract»

    Since inception in 2001, FusionGrid developers have worked to secure computational resources in a multi-institutional environment with geographically dispersed users. Recent improvements to grid security have streamlined the usage and administration of resources. More than simply increasing security, these improvements have made FusionGrid security easier for resource administrators and the fusion... View full abstract»

    We are looking at the problem of scheduling compute tasks on a cluster of servers. These tasks require files that reside on a remote archive, and may also be cached on some subset of the servers. A task can only be run on a server that has the files it requires. This introduces the problem of scheduling data movement in coordination with the scheduling of computation. Our goal is to maximize throu... View full abstract»

    We observe the recent research trend toward large-scale, component-based distributed systems that are dynamically configurable or extensible in response to changing execution environments or end-user needs. Regardless of whether these configuration changes happen automatically through predefined adaptation or self-management methods or in response to explicit user interaction, they can jeopardize ...

    One of the first motivations of using grids comes from applications managing large data sets infield such as high energy physics or life sciences. To improve the global throughput of software environments, replicas are usually put at wisely selected sites. Moreover, computation requests have to be scheduled among the available resources. To get the best performance, scheduling and data replication... View full abstract»

    This paper presents the design and implementation of a reinforcement learning agent that automatically selects appropriate loop scheduling algorithms for parallel loops embedded in time-stepping scientific applications executing on clusters. There may be a number of such loops in an application, and the loops may have different load balancing requirements. Further, loop characteristics may also ch... View full abstract»

    Many condition health-monitoring applications require access to distributed data assets. The DAME project has investigated one such example based upon condition monitoring of civil aero-engine sensor data. A service-based solution is introduced that has been implemented within the Globus grid framework. It provides a general architecture for distributed search and identifies the generic functional...

    In a distributed computing environment, particularly grid, fault-tolerance is one of the core functionalities the system should provide. MPICH-GF is such a resilient system designed to resist external or internal failures, especially for message passing applications in the grid environment. But it does not stand the loss of a valuable resource: files. In a normal case, users open files and write d... View full abstract»
