Quota: Rationing server resources in peer-assisted online hosting systems

Fangming Liu, Ye Sun, Bo Li, Baochun Li
2009 2009 17th IEEE International Conference on Network Protocols  
This paper seeks to explore the design space of new protocols to allocate scarce server resources-including both storage space and bandwidth-in peer-assisted online hosting systems.  ...  Due to the large number of users in real-world online hosting systems, it is not feasible to satisfy the resource requirements of all users.  ...  Quota: DESIGN AND ANALYSIS In response to the above challenges, in this section we propose our design of Quota, a framework for server resource allocation protocols in peer-assisted online hosting systems  ...

Robust and Efficient Incentives for Cooperative Content Distribution

M. Sirivianos, Xiaowei Yang, S. Jarecki
2009 IEEE/ACM Transactions on Networking  
A client that honestly uploads to its peers is rewarded in the following two ways.  ...  When an online content provider uses a P2P protocol, it faces an incentive issue: how to motivate its clients to upload to their peers.  ...  We also thank Lichun Bao, Jong Han Park, Rex Chen and Denh Sy with Calit2 for providing assistance, space and equipment for our experiments. This work was supported by NSF award CNS-0627166.  ...

A Game Theory Approach for Assisting Humans in Online Information-Sharing

Ron S. Hirschprung, Shani Alkoby
2022 Information  
We introduce a novel theoretical framework called Online Information-Sharing Assistance (OISA) to evaluate the interactive nature of the information-sharing trade-off problem.  ...  Finally, as a proof of concept, we conduct an empirical study in a simulated Facebook environment in which human participants compete against OISA-based AI agents, showing that significantly higher utility  ...  Google Cloud was used to host the virtual machine on which the server side was implemented. We applied two types of non-human agents.  ...

Again the system returns news articles drawn from a variety of online news sources (mainly newswires).  ...  However a mobile agent is unique in that its code is executed by a host. Thus an executing mobile agent has automatic access to some of a hosts resources.  ...  Summary There are many alternatives to mobile agents such as queued RPC, proxy servers and client-server computing.  ...

Complexity of System Configuration Management [chapter]

Yizhan Sun, Alva Couch
2008 Handbook of Network and System Administration  
We also explore how system administrators keep these tasks tractable in practice.  ...  In this thesis, we begin to define a theory of system administration, based upon two activities of system administrators: configuration management and dependency analysis.  ...  The difficulty of performing testing is that the system under test must be always "alive and online" -available to provide services and resources. Here we have the key challenge.  ...
