In this paper we design a proportional-period optimal controller for allocating CPU to real rate multimedia applications on a general-purpose computer system. We model this computer system problem in to state space form. We design a controller based on dynamic optimization LQR tracking techniques to minimize short term and long ...

We describe Environmental Observation and Forecasting Systems (EOFS), a new class of large-scale distributed system designed to monitor, model, and forecast wide-area physical processes such as river systems. EOFS have strong social relevance in areas such as education, transportation, agriculture, natural resource planning and disaster response. In addition, they represent ...

Reservation-based scheduling delivers a proportion of the CPU to jobs over a period of time. In this paper we argue that automatically determining and assigning this period is both possible and useful in general purpose soft real-time environments such as personal computers and information appliances. The goal of period adaptation ...

In this paper we propose to use feedback control to automatically allocate disk bandwidth in order to match the rate of disk I/O to the real-rate \cite{Steere99} needs of applications. We describe a model for adaptive resource management based on measuring the relative progress of stages in a producer-consumer pipeline. ...

A key feature of tomorrow''s operating systems and runtime environments is their ability to adapt. Current state of the art uses an ad-hoc approach to building adaptive software, resulting in systems that can be complex, unpredictable and brittle. We advocate a modular and methodical approach for building adaptive system software ...

In this paper we propose changing the decades-old practice of allocating CPU to threads based on priority to a scheme based on proportion and period. Our scheme allocates to each thread a percentage of CPU cycles over a period of time, and uses a feedback-based adaptive scheduler to assign automatically ...

Files are a tried and true operating system abstraction. They present a simple byte-stream model of I/O that has proven intuitive for application programmers and efficient for operating system builders. However, current file systems do not provide good support for adaptive continuous media (CM) applications - an increasingly important class ...

Quality of service (QoS) support has been a hot research topic in multimedia databases, and multimedia systems in general, for the past several years. However, there remains little consensus on how QoS support should be provided. At the resource-management level, systems designers are still debating the suitability of reservation-based versus ...

We introduce SWiFT, a toolkit for building adaptive system software using a control-theoretic approach. SWiFT allows systematic implementation of feedback-control mechanisms. It also provides a framework for composing simple feedback mechanisms that operate within limited domains, and for dynamically reconfiguring them. This composition allows the application to adapt efficiently across ...

Recent advances in the Domain Name System (DNS) and the Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) have enabled a new approach to supporting mobile users: location independent naming. In this approach, machines use the same hostname from any internet location, but use an IP address that corresponds to their current location. ...

Device independent I/O has been a holy grail to OS designers since the early days of UNIX. Unfortunately, existing OS''s fall short of this goal for applications that rely on very predictable I/O latency, such as multimedia players. Although techniques such as caching and sequential read-ahead can help by eliminating ...

A key goal of distributed systems is to provide prompt access to shared information repositories. The high latency of remote access is a serious impediment to this goal. We propose a new file system abstraction called dynamic sets that allows the system to transparently reduce I/O latency without relying on ...

Many users of large distributed systems are plagued by high latency when accessing remote data. Latency is particularly problematic for the critical application of search and retrieval, which tends to access many objects and may suffer a long wait for each object accessed. Existing techniques like caching, inferential prefetching, and ...

Abstract: We present formal specifications of a new abstraction, weak sets, which can be used to alleviate high latencies when retrieving data from a wide-area information system like the World Wide Web. In the presence of failures, concurrency, and distribution, clients performing queries may observe behavior that is inconsistent with ...

Describes a single unifying abstraction called 'dynamic sets', which can offer substantial benefits to search applications. These benefits include greater opportunity in the I/O subsystem to aggressively exploit prefetching and parallelism, as well as support for associative naming to complement the hierarchical naming in typical file systems. This paper motivates ...

System designers have traditionally treated the network as an inexhaustible resource, focusing their efforts on optimizing CPU and storage usage. For instance, the popular NFS file system [8] supports diskless operation, thereby avoiding use of local secondary storage at the expense of increased network usage. But in mobile computing, it ...
