Articles: Showing

Mastering Agreement Problems in Distributed Systems ( Michel Raynal, Mukesh Singhal ; IEEE Software Magazine 2001-07)

- Nonblocking atomic commitment is a well-known agreement problem of practical interest to distributed-systems engineers and designers. The authors present this problem as a case study in the context of synchronous and asynchronous distributed systems to survey recent notions about failure detection. They also show how systems engineers can use these findings to gain deeper insight into the challenges they encounter.

Middleware Challenges Ahead ( Kurt Geihs ; IEEE Computer Magazine 2001-06)

- Facing dynamic modifications in distributed system technology, middleware developers strive to support applications that meet the technical challenges of ubiquitous computing.

Instruction-Level Distributed Processing ( James E. Smith ; IEEE Computer Magazine 2001-04)

- Shifts in hardware and software technology will soon force designers to look at microarchitectures that process instruction streams in a highly distributed fashion.

Speculative Multithreaded Processors ( Gurindar S. Sohi, Amir Roth ; IEEE Computer Magazine 2001-04)

- Speculation will overcome the limitations in dividing a single program into multiple threads that can execute on the multiple logical processing elements needed to enhance performance through parallelization.

Executable Specifications for Embedded Distributed Systems ( Miroslav Sveda, Radimir Vrba ; IEEE Computer Magazine 2001-01)

- Designers can use hardware components and an executable specification language to efficiently prototype embedded distributed systems.

The Challenge of Tamperproof Internet Computing ( Edmund M.A. Ronald, Moshe Sipper ; IEEE Computer Magazine 2000-09)

- Internet computing—harnessing global communication to increase computational power—is now possible. But will it ever truly be secure?

Cellular Processing Tools for High-Performance Simulation ( Domenico Talia ; IEEE Computer Magazine 2000-09)

- Cellular automata offer a powerful modeling approach for complex systems in which global behavior arises from the collective effect of many locally interacting, simple components. Several tools based on CA are providing meaningful results for real-world applications.

Distributed File Sharing: Barbarians at the Gates? ( Michael Macedonia ; IEEE Computer Magazine 2000-08)

- Will the MP3 format and Napster's distributed file sharing bankrupt music publishers—or help them reach even more consumers?

Distributed Net Applications Create Virtual Supercomputers ( George Lawton ; IEEE Computer Magazine 2000-06)

Guest Editors' Introduction: Real-Time Distributed Object Computing- An Emerging Field ( Eltefaat Shokri, Phillip Sheu ; IEEE Computer Magazine 2000-06)

APIs for Real-Time Distributed Object Programming ( K.H. (Kane) Kim ; IEEE Computer Magazine 2000-06)

- This article focuses on application programming interfaces (APIs) that take the form of C++ and Java class libraries and support high-level, high-precision, real-time object programming without requiring new language translators.

Generic Support for Distributed Applications ( Jean Bacon, Ken Moody, John Bates, Richard Hayton, Chaoying Ma, Andrew McNeil, Oliver Seidel, Mark Spiteri ; IEEE Computer Magazine 2000-03)

- Existing and emerging applications require timely response to asynchronous events and secure interoperability of independent services in large-scale, widely distributed systems. To meet these needs, Cambridge University researchers developed middleware extensions that provide a flexible, scalable approach to distributed-application development.

A Codesign Approach for Distributed Systems ( Hessam S. Sarjoughian, Bernard P. Zeigler, Daryl R. Hild ; IEEE Computer Magazine 2000-03)

EPIC: Explicitly Parallel Instruction Computing ( Michael S. Schlansker, B. Ramakrishna Rau ; IEEE Computer Magazine 2000-02)

- EPIC defines a new style of architecture that could rival RISC in terms of impact. This philosophy seeks to simplify hardware while extracting even more instruction-level parallelism from programs than either VLIW or superscalar strategies.

Internet Streaming SIMD Extensions ( Shreekant (Ticky) Thakkar, Tom Huff ; IEEE Computer Magazine 1999-12)

- Streaming data—data that's used only once and discarded—characterizes today's 3D and video applications. Pentium III's Streaming SIMD Extensions boost the performance of these applications.

Virtue: Performance Visualization of Parallel and Distributed Applications ( Eric Shaffer, Daniel A. Reed, Shannon Whitmore, Benjamin Schaeffer ; IEEE Computer Magazine 1999-12)

- The Virtue prototype exploits human sensory capabilities to help performance analysts explore and optimize large-scale, multidisciplinary applications. The visualization environment lets collaborators interact with executing software, tuning its behavior to meet performance goals.

Solving Einstein's Equations on Supercomputers ( Gabrielle Allen, Tom Goodale, Gerd Lanfermann, Thomas Radke, Edward Seidel, Werner Benger, Hans-Christian Hege, Andre Merzky, Joan Massó, John Shalf ; IEEE Computer Magazine 1999-12)

- Globally distributed scientific teams, linked to the most powerful supercomputers, are running visual simulations of Einstein's equations on the gravitational effects of colliding black holes.

Chameleon: Hierarchical Clustering Using Dynamic Modeling ( George Karypis, Eui-Hong (Sam) Han, Vipin Kumar ; IEEE Computer Magazine 1999-08)

- Many advanced algorithms have difficulty dealing with highly variable clusters that do not follow a preconceived model. By basing its selections on both interconnectivity and closeness, the Chameleon algorithm yields accurate results for these highly variable clusters.

Component-Based APIs for Versioning and Distributed Applications ( Robert J. Stets, Galen C. Hunt, Michael L. Scott ; IEEE Computer Magazine 1999-07)

- Constrained by the need to support legacy applications, current APIs tend to be large, rigid, and focused on a single host machine. Component-based APIs promise to solve these problems through strong versioning capabilities and support for distributed applications.
