Cache management in scalable network servers
For many users, the perceived speed of computing is increasingly dependent on the performance of network server systems, underscoring the need for high performance servers. Cost-effective scalable network servers can be built on clusters of commodity components (PCs and LANs) instead of using expensive multiprocessor systems. However, network servers ...
IO-lite: A copy-free UNIX I/O system
Memory copy speed is known to be a significant barrier to high-speed communication. We perform an analysis of the requirements for a copy-free buffer system, develop an implementation-independent applications programming interface (API) based on those requirements, and then implement a system that conforms to the API. In addition, we design and ...
