Performance virtualization and QoS in shared storage systems
To handle the growing demands of data intensive applications, storage consolidation is becoming an attractive organizational paradigm. The benefits of consolidation include universal data access, sharing among users, ...
Synchronization, coherence, and consistency for high performance shared memory multiprocessing
Although improved device technology has increased the performance of computer systems, fundamental hardware limitations and the need to build faster systems using existing technology have led many computer system designers ...
Exploiting instruction-level parallelism for memory system performance
Current microprocessors improve performance by exploiting instruction-level parallelism (ILP). ILP hardware techniques such as multiple instruction issue, out-of-order (dynamic) issue, and non-blocking reads can accelerate ...
Efficient runtime support for cluster-based distributed shared memory multiprocessors
Distributed shared memory (DSM) systems provide a shared memory programming paradigm on top of a physically distributed network of computers. The DSM system removes the necessity for programmers to move data explicitly ...
Reliable parallel computing on clusters of multiprocessors
This dissertation describes the design, implementation, and performance of two mechanisms that address reliability and system management problems associated with parallel computing clusters: thread migration and ...
The use of a laser imaging system for automated vehicle guidance and space servicing tasks
This thesis presents a simulation of a laser imaging system for automated vehicle guidance and space servicing tasks. Data generated by this system are used to command a robot navigating in an unconstrained natural terrain. ...
