    A popular approach to providing nonexperts in parallel computing with an easy-to-use programming model is to design a software library consisting of a set of preparallelized routines, and hide the intricacies of parallelization behind the library's API. However, for regular domain problems (such as simple matrix manipulations or low-level image processing applications-in which all elements in a re... View full abstract»

    We present the design, implementation, and performance evaluation of a suite of resource policing mechanisms that allow guest processes to efficiently and unobtrusively exploit otherwise idle workstation resources. Unlike traditional policies that harvest cycles only from unused machines, we employ fine-grained cycle stealing to exploit resources even from machines that have active users. We devel...

    When performing aggressive optimizations and parallelization to exploit features of advanced architectures, optimizing and parallelizing compilers need to quantitatively assess the profitability of any transformations in order to achieve high performance. Useful optimizations and parallelization can be performed if it is known that certain points-to relationships would hold with high or low probab... View full abstract»

  • An extended localized algorithm for connected dominating set formation in ad hoc wireless networks

    Efficient routing among a set of mobile hosts is one of the most important functions in ad hoc wireless networks. Routing based on a connected dominating set is a promising approach, where the search space for a route is reduced to the hosts in the set. A set is dominating if all the hosts in the system are either in the set or neighbors of hosts in the set. The efficiency of dominating-set-based ... View full abstract»

    Multimedia-on-demand (MOD) applications have grown dramatically in popularity, especially in the domains of education, business, and entertainment. Current MOD servers waste precious resources in performing store-and-forward copying. This excessive overhead increases cost and severely limits the scalability of these servers. In this paper, we propose using the network-attached disk (NAD) architect... View full abstract»

    Notoriously high delays in accessing Web pages loaded with massive multimedia objects are highly undesirable. Inspired by the requirements of news agencies and other information providers to include multimedia content in their pages, this paper proposes a new solution to the problem of minimizing the Web response time. We consider an environment that consists of a central multimedia repository and... View full abstract»

  • Soft real-time communication over ethernet with adaptive traffic smoothing

    Due to the low price and robustness resulting from its wide acceptance and deployment, Ethernet has become an attractive candidate for real-time control networks. However, it is difficult to build a real-time control network using the standard Ethernet because the Ethernet MAC protocol-1-persistent CSMA/CD protocol-may cause unpredictable access delay. When both real-time and nonreal-time packets ... View full abstract»
