A caching file system for a programmer's workstation

Michael D. Schroeder, David K. Gifford, Roger M. Needham
1985 ACM SIGOPS Operating Systems Review  
This paper describes a file system for a programmer's workstation that has access both to a local disk and to remote file servers.  ...  Remote files are immutable and cached on the local disk. The file system is part of the Cedar experimental programming environment at Xerox PARC and has been in use since late 1983.  ...  Acknowledgements The Cedar Interim File System, a precursor to CFS developed by Dave Gifford with help from Larry Stewart, first explored the use of an automatically managed cache of remote files on the  ...

Disconnected operation in the Coda file system

James J. Kistler, M. Satyanarayanan
1991 ACM SIGOPS Operating Systems Review  
The central idea behind our work is that caching of data, now widely used for performance, can also be exploited to improve availability.  ...  In this paper, we show that disconnected operation is feasible, efficient and usable by describing its design and implementation in the Coda File System.  ...  A caching file system for a programmer's workstation.  ...

A programming interface for NUMA shared-memory clusters [chapter]

Marcus Dormanns, Walter Sprangers, Hubert Ertl, Thomas Bemmerl
1997 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We developed SMI, the Shared Memory Interface, and implemented it as a library on an SCI-coupled cluster of workstations.  ...  We describe a programming interface for parallel computing on NUMA (Non-Uniform Memory Access) shared memory machines.  ...  Because for the file access in a typically environment with a non-parallel file system and with the original data files of the original sequential code, there is no disadvantage to perform it with a single  ...

A File System For Write-Once Media [article]

Simson L. Garfinkel, J. Spencer Love
2020 arXiv   pre-print
A file system standard for use with write-once media such as digital compact disks is proposed. The file system is designed to work with any operating system and a variety of physical media.  ...  Although the implementation is simple, it provides a a full-featured and high-performance alternative to conventional file systems on traditional, multiple-write media such as magnetic disks.  ...  When all of the desired files are in place, the UNIX file is copied to a tape which is used to master the CDROM. At first, CDFS will be used for user file storage in a public workstation environment.  ...

Cache profiling and the SPEC benchmarks: a case study

A.R. Lebeck, D.A. Wood
1994 Computer  
For example, the SPEC92I benchmark tomcatv spends as much as 53 percent of its time waiting for memory on a DECstation 5000/125.  ...  Caches only work well, however, for programs that exhibit sufficient locality.  ...  A particular window's use depends on the selected command button. for each source file and an additional entry that allows display of a list of source files sorted by the number of cache misses.  ...
