Gulfstream - a system for dynamic topology management in multi-domain server farms

S.A. Fakhouri, G. Goldszmidt, I. Gupta
Proceedings 42nd IEEE Symposium on Foundations of Computer Science  
We describe a prototype implementation of GulfStream on a 55 node heterogeneous server farm interconnected using switched fast Ethernet.  ...  This paper describes GulfStream, a scalable distributed software system designed to address the problem of managing the network topology in a multi-domain server farm.  ...  Acknowledgements Jun Fong, Tim Jones and Terry Steilan provided us with an understanding of VLANs and their implementation on the Cisco 6509 switch.  ...

Then, after a couple of years, it took a sharp turn that brought me to London, United Kingdom, at InterDigital Europe Labs in the position of senior research engineer in the field of 5G Radio Access Network  ...  This time as a research assistant in the NETCOM research group of the Telematics Engineering department at the University Carlos III of Madrid.  ...  Loopback This protocol requires the switch to generate, timestamp, and send specific messages over the data plane to measure the bidirectional bandwidth and delay of a link (see Figure 8.1(b) ).  ...

2014 arXiv   pre-print
Here, we discuss a recursive control architecture consisting of hierarchically stacked control planes and provide initial considerations regarding network management integration to SDN in general and SplitArchitecture  ...  First we present the control and management architecture of the proposed SplitArchitecture.  ...  All of these services are bidirectional. The mobile backhaul service connects a base station to a mobile GW in a bidirectional way.  ...

On consistency and distribution in software-defined networking [article]

Thomas Kohler, Universität Stuttgart
SDN is a key enabler for high dynamics in terms of network reconfiguration and innovation, allowing the deployment of new network protocols and substantially expanding the networking paradigm by moving  ...  Reconfiguring an SDN-based network inevitably requires to update the rules that determine the forwarding behaviour of the devices in its data plane.  ...  We furthermore assume a network consisting of a set of SDN switches sw ∈ SW (deviating from Section 2.1) with associated ports p ∈ P connected over bidirectional links l ∈ L with associated weight w(l)  ...

Redundancy in Communication Networks for Smart Grids

Miroslav Popovic
A typical technique for increasing communication-network availability is to build a redundant network-infrastructure (cloned networks, rings, rings of rings, etc.).  ...  This concept is contrary to the one applied in the case of routing protocols where the decisions are made in a decentralized manner.  ...  Appendix 5.A Proof of Theorem 1 To prove the statement of Theorem 1, we need the following lemmas. Lemma 1.  ...

Proceedings of the Seminar Innovative Internet Technologies and Mobile Communications (IITM), Winter Semester 2020/2021

Georg Carle, Stephan Günther, Benedikt Jaeger, Chair Of Network Architectures
In the context of the seminar, each student individually works on a relevant topic in the domain of computer networks supervised by one or more advisors.  ...  Each semester, the seminar takes place in two different ways: once as a block seminar during the semester break and once in the course of the semester.  ...  The approach builds upon a decentralized architecture with the goal of preserving privacy.  ...

CHARM-Card: Hardware Based Cluster Control And Management System

Ralf Erich Panse
However, the manual installation, configuration and maintenance of such a big computer farm require a large amount of administrative effort.  ...  By the reason of the heterogeneous layout of the target cluster, the control unit was developed to be flexible in use independent of the computer model or operating system of the cluster node.  ...  The CHARM-Host Network bridge operates like a loopback device which simply copies the data of the TX buffer into the RX buffer.  ...
