  • Strategies for using additional resources in parallel hash-based join algorithms

    Hash-based join is a compute- and memory-intensive algorithm. It achieves good performance and scales well to large datasets, if sufficient memory is available to hold the hash table and the distribution of computing had across nodes is balanced. We compare three adaptive algorithms that start with a partitioning of the hash table across a group of nodes and expand during the hash table building p... View full abstract»

  • Distributed hybrid earthquake engineering experiments: experiences with a ground-shaking grid application

    Earthquake engineers have traditionally investigated the behavior of structures with either computational simulations or physical experiments. Recently, a new hybrid approach has been proposed that allows tests to be decomposed into independent substructures that can be located at different test facilities, tested separately, and integrated via a computational simulation. We describe a grid-based ... View full abstract»

  • An approach for automatic data virtualization

    Analysis of large and/or geographically distributed scientific datasets is emerging as a key component of grid computing. One challenge in this area is that scientific datasets are typically stored as binary or character flat-files, which makes specification of processing much harder. In view of this, there has been recent interest in data virtualization, and data services to support such virtuali... View full abstract»

    Active harmony provides a way to automate performance tuning. We apply the Active Harmony system to improve the performance of a cluster-based web service system. The performance improvement cannot easily be achieved by tuning individual components for such a system. The experimental results show that there is no single configuration for the system that performs well for all kinds of workloads. By... View full abstract»

  • Building self-configuring services using service-specific knowledge

    A self-configuring sendee can automatically leverage distributed sendee components and resources to compose an optimal configuration according to both the requirements of a particular user and the system characteristics. One major challenge for building such sendees is how to bring in sendee-specific knowledge, e.g., what components are needed and optimization criteria to use, while still allowing...

  • Differential serialization for optimized SOAP performance

    The SOAP protocol has emerged as a Web Service communication standard, providing simplicity, robustness, and extensibility. SOAP's relatively poor performance threatens to limit its usefulness, especially for high-performance scientific applications. The serialization of outgoing messages, which includes conversion of in-memory data types to XML-based string format and the packing of this data int... View full abstract»

  • An empirical study of the multiscale predictability of network traffic

    Distributed applications use predictions of network traffic to sustain their performance by adapting their behavior The timescale of interest is application-dependent and thus it is natural to ask how predictability depends on the resolution, or degree of smoothing, of the network traffic signal. To help answer this question we empirically study the one-step-ahead predictability, measured by the r... View full abstract»
