Run-time support for distributed sharing in safe languages
Y. Charlie Hu, Weimin Yu, Alan Cox, Dan Wallach, Willy Zwaenepoel
Pages: 1-35
DOI: 10.1145/592637.592638
We present a new run-time system that supports object sharing in a distributed system. The key insight in this system is that a handle-based implementation of such a system enables efficient and transparent sharing of data with both fine- and...

Run-time adaptation in river
Remzi H. Arpaci-Dusseau
Pages: 36-86
DOI: 10.1145/592637.592639
We present the design, implementation, and evaluation of run-time adaptation within the River dataflow programming environment. The goal of the River system is to provide adaptive mechanisms that allow database query-processing applications to cope...

Measuring thin-client performance using slow-motion benchmarking
Jason Nieh, S. Jae Yang, Naomi Novik
Pages: 87-115
DOI: 10.1145/592637.592640
Modern thin-client systems are designed to provide the same graphical interfaces and applications available on traditional desktop computers while centralizing administration and allowing more efficient use of computing resources. Despite the rapidly...
