  • COMPaS: a PC-based SMP cluster

    Publication Year: 1999, Page(s):82 - 86
    Cited by:  Papers (1)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (140 KB)

    Symmetric multiprocessor systems have become widely available, both as computational servers and as platforms for high-performance parallel computing. The same trend is found in PCs-some have also become SMPs with many CPUs in one box. Clusters of PC based SMPs are expected to be compact, cost-effective parallel-computing platforms. At the Real World Computing Partnership, we have built a PC-based... View full abstract»

  • Diffusive load-balancing policies for dynamic applications

    Publication Year: 1999, Page(s):22 - 31
    Cited by:  Papers (27)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2356 KB)

    To evaluate a set of local dynamic load-balancing strategies inspired by diffusion and characterized by different scopes of locality, the authors compare the effect of application dynamicity on performance. The algorithms used achieve the load balancing goal by only using load information belonging to a restricted space and by composing independent local actions View full abstract»

  • Globe: a wide area distributed system

    Publication Year: 1999, Page(s):70 - 78
    Cited by:  Papers (64)  |  Patents (7)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (148 KB)

    The authors present an object-based framework for developing wide-area distributed applications. The World Wide Web's current performance problems illustrate the benefit of encapsulating state, operations, and implementation strategies on a per-object basis. The authors describe how distributed objects can implement worldwide scalable Web documents View full abstract»

  • Mobile multimedia: shaping the Infoverse

    Publication Year: 1999, Page(s):7 - 9
    Cited by:  Patents (14)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (104 KB)

    The greatest challenges for the Infoverse and a global information visualization environment concern the inherent limitations of mobile data appliances. The biggest limitations are low communication bandwidth, limited computing resources (in terms of storage capacity, computing power, and data entry and presentation capabilities) for complex information formats and services, and temporary unavaila...

    This two-part article discusses the Huge Microphone Array (HMA) project, an ongoing effort to build a real-time 512-microphone array system and develop algorithms for it. This system lays the groundwork for a wide range of teleconferencing, entertainment, and surveillance applications. In part 1, the authors described system planning and design. In this article they describe the system itself View full abstract»

    In shared-memory multiprocessor systems that use multistage interconnection networks, memory contention can produce “tree saturation”, which ultimately degrades system performance. This article categorizes, reviews, and compares existing strategies for reducing these effects View full abstract»
