Disconnected operation in the Coda File System
James J. Kistler, M. Satyanarayanan
Pages: 3-25
DOI: 10.1145/146941.146942
Disconnected operation is a mode of operation that enables a client to continue accessing critical data during temporary failures of a shared data repository. An important, though not exclusive, application of disconnected...

The design and implementation of a log-structured file system
John K. Ousterhout, Mendel Rosenblum
Pages: 26-52
DOI: 10.1145/146941.146943
This paper presents a new technique for disk storage management called a log-structured file system. A log-structured file system writes all modifications to disk sequentially in a log-like structure, thereby speeding up both...

Scheduler activations: effective kernel support for the user-level management of parallelism
Brian N. Bershad, Henry M. Levy, Edward D. Lazowska, Thomas E. Anderson
Pages: 53-79
DOI: 10.1145/146941.146944
Threads are the vehicle for concurrency in many approaches to parallel programming. Threads can be supported either by the operating system kernel or by user-level library code in the application address space, but neither...
