Network locality at the scale of processes
Jeffrey C. Mogul
Pages: 81-109
DOI: 10.1145/128899.128900
Packets on a LAN can be viewed as a series of references to and from the objects they address. The amount of locality in this reference stream may be critical to the efficiency of network implementations, if the locality can be exploited through...

A dynamic network architecture
Larry L. Peterson, Sean W. O'Malley
Pages: 110-143
DOI: 10.1145/128899.128901
Network software is a critical component of any distributed system. Because of its complexity, network software is commonly layered into a hierarchy of protocols, or more generally, into a protocol graph. Typical protocol...

Delivery of time-critical messages using a multiple copy approach
Kang G. Shin, Parameswaran Ramanathan
Pages: 144-166
DOI: 10.1145/128899.128902
Reliable and timely delivery of messages between processing nodes is essential in distributed real-time systems. Failure to deliver a message within its deadline usually forces the system to undertake a recovery action, which introduces some...
