Slead: Low-Memory, Steady Distributed Systems Slicing [chapter]

Francisco Maia, Miguel Matos, Etienne Rivière, Rui Oliveira
2012 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Slicing a large-scale distributed system is the process of autonomously partitioning its nodes into k groups, named slices.  ...  In this paper, we identify steadiness issues where nodes in a slice border constantly exchange slice and large memory requirements for adequate convergence, and provide practical solutions for the two.  ...  Slead In this Section we present Slead, a new distributed slicing protocol that addresses the problems of steadiness and memory consumption found in existing protocols and highlighted in the previous section  ...

Slicing as a Distributed Systems Primitive

F. Maia, M. Matos, R. Oliveira, E. Riviere
2013 2013 Sixth Latin-American Symposium on Dependable Computing  
Slicing is presented as a complete, dependable and integrated distributed systems primitive for large-scale systems.  ...  Large-scale distributed systems appear as the major infrastructures for supporting planet-scale services. These systems call for appropriate management mechanisms and protocols.  ...  DSLEAD: Decaying SLEAD Although successful in reducing steadiness and memory consumption issues from previous approaches, the SLEAD protocol exhibits some frailties.  ...

Informal payments for health care in Hungary

PA Gaal
2004
First, although it is not a substantial source of health care financing (less than 5% of total expenditures in 2001), its importance as an incentive comes from its extent and distribution (at least 60%  ...  That is, health services had a larger slice of the shrinking cake.  ...  She argued that it was unevenly distributed among health workers and had too little connection to real performance to serve as a mechanism for complementing low salaries.  ...
