Lightweight probabilistic broadcast
P. Th. Eugster, R. Guerraoui, S. B. Handurukande, P. Kouznetsov, A.-M. Kermarrec
Gossip-based broadcast algorithms, a family of probabilistic broadcast algorithms, trade reliability guarantees against "scalability" properties. Scalability in this context has usually been expressed in terms of message throughput and delivery...
Balancing performance and flexibility with hardware support for network architectures
Ilija Hadžić, Jonathan M. Smith
The goals of performance and flexibility are often at odds in the design of network systems. The tension is common enough to justify an architectural solution, rather than a set of context-specific solutions. The Programmable Protocol Processing...
Call graph prefetching for database applications
Murali Annavaram, Jignesh M. Patel, Edward S. Davidson
With the continuing technological trend of ever cheaper and larger memory, most data sets in database servers will soon be able to reside in main memory. In this configuration, the performance bottleneck is likely to be the gap between the processing...
