The effect of contention on the scalability of page-based software shared memory systems
We demonstrate the profound effects of contention on the performance of page-based software distributed shared memory systems, as such systems are scaled to a larger number of nodes. Programs whose performance scales will experience only minor increases in memory latency, do not suffer from contention, and show a balanced communication load. In ...
Component-based adaptation for mobile computing
Component-based adaptation is a novel approach for adapting applications to the limited availability of resources such as bandwidth and power in mobile environments. Component-based adaptation works by calling on the run-time APIs that modern component-based applications export. Because source code modification is not necessary, even proprietary ...
