    Distributed metadata servers are required for cluster file system's scalability. However, how to distribute the file system metadata among multiple metadata servers and how to make the file system reliable in case of server failures are two difficult problem. We present a journal-based failure-recovery mechanism for distributed metadata servers in the dawning cluster file system-DCFS2. The DCFS2 m... View full abstract»

    Grid computing has great potential but to enter the mainstream it must be simplified. Tools and libraries must make it easier to solve problems by being simpler and at the same time more sophisticated. We describe how grid computing can be achieved through spreadsheets. No parallel programming or complex tools need to be used. So long as dependencies allow it, formulae in a spreadsheet can be eval... View full abstract»

    In order to provide a framework for building Web-based distributed PSEs (problem solving environment) on a grid, we have been designing and implementing grid PSE builder. By using grid PSE builder, PSE providers can easily build a PSE using existing large scale scientific-engineering application as PSE components, without specialized knowledge about Web security and programming. On the other hand,... View full abstract»

    Grid computing has been developed extensive in recently years and is becoming an important platform for high performance computing in scientific areas. Grid performance evaluation is an important approach to improve the performance of grid systems and applications. However, few work has been conducted in grid performance evaluation due to a lot of reasons like lack, of appropriate grid performance... View full abstract»

    The information service is a key component of a grid environment and critical to the operation of a computational grid. This work presents an information service that complies with the OGSI (open grid services infrastructure) framework. This information service is a hierarchical structure which consists of the virtual organization level, site level and node level. We propose two models of informat... View full abstract»

    Request permission for reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (349 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Cycle stealing systems use idle PCs to create virtual supercomputers. Utilizing third party PCs in this way is very attractive but one fraught with problems. Firstly, writing applications is difficult without supporting middleware, the cycle stealing environment is highly volatile with machines coming and going at random. Secondly, cycle stealing applications and data need to be deployed and insta... View full abstract»

    The paper describes the use of a wireless sensor network (WSN) for performing parallel pattern recognition computations. A complexity analysis indicates that the proposed algorithm is independent of the number of nodes and hence may scale up indefinitely with the network. It's shown that any material object once overlaid with a WSN, develops a latent associative memory, which enables the object to... View full abstract»

    Computational and data grids consist of the coordinated utilization of large sets of diverse, geographically distributed resources for high performance computation. In order to make better use of these computing entities, a substantial amount of monitoring data is collected for a variety of tasks. The large number of heterogeneous resources available in grids makes the task challenging. The proces... View full abstract»

    If a grid system is connected to a database and uses data in the database, it is required to develop a data manipulation module, which handles data and its indices in the database, and install it in the grid system. If there is a search system, which can directly manipulate data in a database on a Web, and if it is possible to integrate it with a grid system as a single resource, the resulting sys...
