    Concurrency control in distributed and parallel applications has been studied for many years but is still an ongoing research topic. Transactional memory addresses this challenge for multicore processors by proposing to execute critical sections as restartable transactions combined with optimistic synchronization. Thus the programmer has not to reason about complex lock management and deadlocks. W... View full abstract»

  • A Feature-Based Replica Consistency Strategy for Spatial Data in Distributed GIS

    Publication Year: 2010, Page(s):11 - 16
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (421 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    In distributed Geographic Information System (GIS), spatial data has multi-source, heterogeneous characteristics, so there are data inconsistencies between nodes. Although there were many approaches about data consistency, a single strategy can not meet the replicas of spatial data which has large volume and complex topology. For the particularity of spatial data, through data partitioning, the pa... View full abstract»

  • Integrating DBMSs as a Read-Only Execution Layer into Hadoop

    Publication Year: 2010, Page(s):17 - 26
    Cited by:  Papers (2)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (357 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    To obtain the efficiency of DBMS, HadoopDB combines Hadoop and DBMS, and claims the superiority over Hadoop in terms of performance. However, the approach of HadoopDB is simply putting Map Reduce onto unmodified single-machined DBMSs which has several obvious weaknesses. In essence, HadoopDB is a parallel DBMS with fault tolerance, which incurs unnecessary overhead due to the DBMS legacy. Instead ... View full abstract»

  • Multi-aggregate-query Scheduling over Data Streams

    With the wide applications of data streams in many fields, such as sensor network monitoring and internet traffic control, query processing over data streams has become increasingly important. In these applications, multiple aggregate queries are registered in the system, and have different sliding window sizes and different frequency upper bounds. How to share the results of these queries is a ch... View full abstract»

  • Rawls Scheduler: Load Considered Proportional Share Scheduling for High Performance Multimedia Systems

    Publication Year: 2010, Page(s):34 - 41
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (374 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    A scheduler for high performance systems containing mixed applications of both real-time multimedia and non real-time applications is proposed. The requirements of our proposed scheduler are twofold, i) all tasks, although the task is a non real-time task with a lower priority, never meet a starvation. ii) any tasks with a higher priority must occupy more CPU resource than any other tasks with low...

  • SemanticCast: Content-Based Data Distribution over Self-Organizing Semantic Overlay Networks

    Publication Year: 2010, Page(s):42 - 49
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (316 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Many applications demand distributing data with different contents efficiently in the network environment with unreliable links and a high node churn. Existing approaches mostly focus on optimizing either efficiency or robustness of data distribution, and fail to ensure both of them simultaneously. In this paper, we propose Semantic Cast - a content-based data distribution approach over self-organ... View full abstract»

    Large-scale distributed computing systems (LDCSs) can be best characterized by their dynamic nature particularly in terms of availability and performance. Typically, these systems deal with various types of jobs in many aspects, such as resource requirements, quality of service (QoS) and other temporal constraints. These diverse characteristics in both resources and jobs impose a great burden on s... View full abstract»

    Massively multi-user virtual environments (MMVEs)are becoming increasingly popular with millions of users. Typically, commercial implementations rely on client/server architectures for managing the game state and use message passing mechanisms to communicate state changes to the clients. We have developed the Typed Grid Object Sharing (TGOS)service providing data sharing of in-memory data. TGOS ai... View full abstract»

  • Distributed Popularity Based Replica Placement in Data Grid Environments

    Data grids support distributed data-intensive applications that need to access massive datasets stored around the world. Ensuring efficient access to such datasets is hindered by the high latencies of wide-area networks. To speed up access, files can be replicated so a user can access a nearby replica. Replication also provides improved availability, decreased bandwidth use, increased fault tolera... View full abstract»

  • A New Reliable and Self-Stabilizing Data Fusion Scheme in Unsafe Wireless Sensor Networks

    Publication Year: 2010, Page(s):87 - 93
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (479 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    In this paper, we deal with the problem of distributed data fusion in unsafe large-scale sensor networks. Data fusion application is the phase of processing the collected data by sensor nodes before sending it the end user. During this phase, resource failures are more likely to occur and can have an adverse effect on the application. Hence, we introduce first an efficient self-stabilizing algorit...

  • A Deadline-Aware Concurrency Control Scheme for Composite Services

    Publication Year: 2010, Page(s):94 - 103
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (487 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    This paper proposed a concurrency control scheme for composite services with time constraints. In the proposed scheme, in order to determine the dependency relations between the composite services more accurately, the proposed scheme analyzes the SQL statements executed by the composite services at run-time to identify the dependency relation among the composite services. The proposed scheme also ... View full abstract»

    The locally twisted cube is one of the most notable variations of hypercube, but some properties of the locally twisted cube are superior to those of the hypercube. For example, the diameter of former is almost the half of that of the later. This paper addresses how to embed a maximal size of multi-dimensional torus into a locally twisted cube. The major contribution of this paper is that for n &#... View full abstract»
