A few SIGOPS/EuroSys 2007 articles that may be of interest
I've extended my
the other day, and in the process joined ACM's
Special Interest Group in Operating Systems.
The other day I've found the
proceedings of SIGOPS' european meeting in Portugal, EuroSys 2007,
in the mail.
are a few articles that may be of interest:
Maybe this gives some ideas for future works near NetBSD. Enjoy!
- Thread clustering: sharing-aware scheduling on SMP-CMP-SMT
multiprocessors, by David Tam, Reza Azimi, Michael Stumm
Talks about impact of scheduling on multi-core machines in SMP and CPU
- hFS: a hybrid file system prototype for improving small file and
metadata performance, by Zhihui Zhang, Kanad Ghose
Introduces a FreeBSD-based implementation of a mixture between FFS (for
in-place metadata updating) and LFS (for out-of-place metadata
updating). Includes performance measures against a port of NetBSD's
- Competitive prefetching for concurrent sequential I/O, by Chuanpeng Li,
Kai Shen, Athanasios E. Papathanasiou
How to detect and handle IO balancing. May be of interest WRT last and
this year's "QoS" Summer-of-Code project.
- Dynamic and adaptive updates of non-quiescent subsystems in commodity
operating system kernels, by Kristis Makris, Kyung Dong Ryu
Having kernel modules is one thing, being able to replace subsystems
that are in use is a different problem, solved here. Shows how to
replace like functions, and subsystems like a full scheduler while
- Antiquity: exploiting a secure log for wide-area distributed storage,
by Hakim Weatherspoon, Patrick Eaton, Byung-Gon Chun, John
Possible, BSD-licensed alternative to existing distributed file systems
(NFS, Coda) that's designed to handle failure of arbitrary machines.
Code is available from http://antiquity.sourceforge.net/.
