Multi-class latency bounded Web services
Two recent advances have resulted in significant improvements in web server quality-of-service. First, both centralized and distributed web servers can provide isolation among service classes by fairly distributing system ...
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 ...
General-purpose architectures for media processing and database workloads
Workloads on general-purpose computing systems have changed dramatically over the past few years, with greater emphasis on emerging compute-intensive applications such as media processing and databases. However, until ...
Smoothing vs. buffering for end-to-end QoS: Fundamental issues and comparison
Smoothing traffic flows at the network edge to reduce their burstiness has been shown to have significant benefits for video-on-demand systems and deterministic services. In this thesis, we investigate the relative abilities ...
