Eliminating State Entanglement with Checkpoint-based Virtualization of Mobile OS Services

Kevin Boos, Ardalan Amiri Sani, Lin Zhong
2015 Proceedings of the 6th Asia-Pacific Workshop on Systems - APSys '15  
These interactions cause application-specific states to be spread across many service processes, a problem we identify as state entanglement.  ...  State entanglement presents significant challenges to a wide variety of computing goals: fault isolation, fault tolerance, application migration, live update, and application speculation.  ...  By profiling fork(), we find that it takes only 1 ms to copy and write to about 10 MB of memory, or 2500 pages.  ...

2005 International journal of parallel programming  
We modify its core to measure performance characteristics, obtaining a system that provides cycle-accurate timings and presents results in the style of gprof, but with absolutely no software overhead.  ...  Generic processors, such as ARM and Power PC, are inexpensive, but with respect to a given application, they often overprovision in areas that are unimportant for the application's performance.  ...  Based on our knowledge of this application, we next evaluate the application's performance with regard to the memory-subsystem behavior.  ...

Performance Analysis Using Subsuming Methods: An Industrial Case Study

David Maplesden, Karl von Randow, Ewan Tempero, John Hosking, John Grundy
2015 2015 IEEE/ACM 37th IEEE International Conference on Software Engineering  
Subsuming methods analysis is a new approach that aggregates performance costs across repeated patterns of method calls that occur in the application's runtime behaviour.  ...  To evaluate the practicality of this analysis with a real world large-scale object-oriented application we completed a case study with the developers of letterboxd.com -a social network website for movie  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENT David Maplesden is supported by a University of Auckland Doctoral Scholarship and the John Butcher One-Tick Scholarship for Postgraduate Study in Computer Science.  ...

A Semantic Context Management Framework on Mobile Device

Dexter H. Hu, Fan Dong, Cho-Li Wang

Identifying Memory Allocation Patterns in HEP Software

S Kama, N Rauschmayr
2017 Journal of Physics, Conference Series  
Plotting these metrics for every single allocation over time gives a new insight into application's memory handling.  ...  These issues are already known for a decade, but due to the complexity of software frameworks and billions of allocations for a single job, up until recently no efficient mechanism has been available to  ...  The paper shows that all profiled HEP applications suffer significantly from memory churn, meaning that 80% of allocations are smaller than 100 Bytes and about 65% live less than 1 ms.  ...
