Graceful quorum reconfiguration in a robust emulation of shared memory

B. Englert, A.A. Shvartsman
Proceedings 20th IEEE International Conference on Distributed Computing Systems  
A robust emulation of atomic single-writer/multi-reader registers in message-passing systems was developed by Attiya, Bar-Noy and Dolev (1995).  ...  Providing shared-memory abstraction in messagepassing systems often simplifies the development of distributed algorithms and allows for the reuse of sharedmemory algorithms in the message-passing setting  ...  In this paper we present a robust emulation of atomic multi-reader/multi-writer memory using dy-namic quorum configurations.  ...

Self-stabilization Overhead: an Experimental Case Study on Coded Atomic Storage [article]

Chryssis Georgiou, Robert Gustafsson, Andreas Lindhe, Elad M. Schiller
2018 arXiv   pre-print
Shared memory emulation can be used as a fault-tolerant and highly available distributed storage solution or as a low-level synchronization primitive.  ...  In this respect, Dolev, Petig, and Schiller have recently developed a self-stabilizing version of CAS, which we call CASSS.  ...  Shared Memory Emulation The goal of emulating a shared memory is to allow the clients to access via read and write operations a shared storage in the network.  ...

Rambo: a robust, reconfigurable atomic memory service for dynamic networks

Seth Gilbert, Nancy A. Lynch, Alexander A. Shvartsman
2010 Distributed computing  
In this paper, we present RAMBO, an algorithm for emulating a read/write distributed shared memory in a dynamic, rapidly changing environment.  ...  The main novelty of RAMBO lies in the combination of an efficient reconfiguration mechanism with a quorum-based replication strategy for read/write shared memory.  ...  The key challenge lies in showing that every configuration included in a given garbage collection remains viable; if the viability of some configuration expires, then the garbage collection will never  ...

Are There Biomimetic Lessons from Genetic Regulatory Networks for Developing a Lunar Industrial Ecology?

Alex Ellery
2021 Biomimetics  
There are numerous subtleties that would be challenging to implement in a lunar industrial ecology but much of the essence of biological circuitry (as implemented in synthetic biology, for example) is  ...  Initially, we examine lessons from factory organisation which have evolved into a bio-inspired concept, the reconfigurable holonic architecture.  ...  Conflicts of Interest: The author declares no conflict of interest.  ...

Programming Support for Distributed Optimization and Control in Cyber-Physical Systems

Rahul Balani, Lucas F. Wanner, Jonathan Friedman, Mani B. Srivastava, Kaisen Lin, Rajesh K. Gupta
2011 2011 IEEE/ACM Second International Conference on Cyber-Physical Systems  
In this paper, we propose a distributed shared memory (DSM) architecture that abstracts away the details of inter-node coordination from the programmer resulting in simplified application design.  ...  While significant advances have taken place in optimization techniques, their widespread adoption in practical implementations is impeded by the complexity of inter-node coordination and lack of programming  ...  Any opinions, findings and conclusions or recommendations expressed in this material are those of the author(s) and do not necessarily reflect the views of the NSF or CAPES/Fulbright.  ...

Peer-to-peer support for massively multiplayer games

B. Knutsson, Honghui Lu, Wei Xu, B. Hopkins
Our approach exploits the fact that players in MMGs display locality of interest, and therefore can form self-organizing groups based on their locations in the virtual world.  ...  We have implemented a simple game we call SimMud, and experimented with up to 4000 players to demonstrate the applicability of this approach. 0-7803-8356-7  ...  This research is supported in part by the DoD University Research Initiative (URI) program administered by the Office of Naval Research under Grant N00014-01-1-0795.  ...

Final report on information processing research

Rachel T. Levine, Research Documents Group.
In addition, our logic permits formulas of the form A/(/) and Y/(i) where/(i) is a formula of our logic.  ...  Intuitively, the formula A. /(/) will be true in a global state of some concurrent system, provided that the formula /(i) holds for each component process /. y/(i) is explained similarly.  ...  A reconfiguration method is proposed that permits quorums to be changed dynamically.  ...

In current practice, every application implements these features as part of its own application logic, resulting in unnecessary design complexity.  ...  replication of flows respectively.  ...  For example, in databases, key-value stores, content management systems, etc., there is a non-negligible amount of shared state in the form of locks, shared memory, data on disk, etc.  ...

Network-aware big data processing

At the same time, data centre networks (DCNs) are becoming increasingly more complex in terms of the physical network topology, the variety of applications that are sharing the network, and the different  ...  The high complexity of DCNs combined with the increased traffic demands of applications has made the network a bottleneck for query performance.  ...  Asymmetric joins, such as the GRACE [KTMO83] hash join and the hybrid hash join [DKO + 84], operate in two phases to optimise memory usage.  ...

Toward principled enterprise network management [article]

Daniel Levin, Technische Universität Berlin, Technische Universität Berlin, Anja Feldmann
Over the past several years, Software Defined Networking (SDN) has emerged as a paradigm in which the fundamentally needed, yet missing abstractions of traditional network management can be realized.  ...  In this thesis, we investigate and characterize key state distribution design trade-offs arising from the "logically centralized network control plane", a fundamental architectural hallmark of software  ...  In this scene, the pilgrims are seated around a large table, having arrived at their destination.  ...
