An experimental comparison of remote procedure call and group communication

M. Frans Kaashoek, Andrew S. Tanenbaum, Kees Verstoep
1992 Proceedings of the 5th workshop on ACM SIGOPS European workshop Models and paradigms for distributed systems structuring - EW 5  
This paper suggests that a distributed system should support two communication paradigms: Remote Procedure Call (RPC) and group commumcation.  ...  We demonstrate that group communication is an important paradigm by showing that a fault-tolerant directory service is much easier to implement with groups than with RPC and is also more efficient.  ...  Acknowledgements Robbert van Renesse and Mark Wood provided comments on an eaa'lier draft of this paper, which improved its content and presentation substantially.  ...

Comparative study on CCN and CDN

Ge Ma, Zhen Chen
2014 2014 IEEE Conference on Computer Communications Workshops (INFOCOM WKSHPS)  
With a fundamental change in network architecture, CCN (content centric network) incorporates content delivery functions in its network layer, and appears to be a most promising solution to this problem  ...  In this paper, we construct comparable CDN and CCN testbeds separately and systematically compare the content delivery of CDN and CCN.  ...  The CDN testbed has six servers, including a web server (content source), two caching proxy servers (running squid), a load balancing server (running nginx), a DNS name resolve server (running bind) and  ...

Efficiency vs. portability in cluster-based network servers

Enrique V. Carrera, Ricardo Bianchini
2001 Proceedings of the eighth ACM SIGPLAN symposium on Principles and practices of parallel programming - PPoPP '01  
To fill this gap, in this paper we use modeling and experimentation to study this tradeoff in the context of an interesting class of content-based network servers, the localityconscious servers, under  ...  Based on our results, our main conclusion is that portability should be promoted in cluster-based network servers with low processor overhead, given its relatively low cost (≤ 16%) in terms of throughput  ...  Acknowledgements We would like to thank Liviu Iftode, Rich Martin, Thu Nguyen, and Tao Yang for discussions on the topic of this paper.  ...

Distribution of biological databases over low-bandwidth networks

S Sikander Azam, Shamshad Zarina
2012 Bioinformation  
In current study, two protocols (FTP and Bit Torrent) were evaluated and the utility of a BitTorren based peer-to-peer (btP2P) file distribution model for automatic synchronization and distribution of  ...  Databases are integral part of bioinformatics and need to be accessed most frequently, thus downloading and updating them on a regular basis is very critical.  ...  Filezilla is a single server based solution that does not support torrent file, becomes slower with increasing number of users and lacks resume facility after internet link failure.  ...

2017 Journal of Applied and Advanced Research  
All this requires only a small fraction of increased computation overhead at the client. This proposed three authenticated key exchange protocols for parallel network file system (pNFS).  ...  First, the metadata server executing these protocols has much lower workload than that of the Kerberos-based approach.  ...  In traditional systems, disks are attached directly to a file server, which provides file access to clients across a network [9] .  ...
