  1. 1. Scaling Distributed Hierarchical File Systems Using NewSQL Databases

    Author : Salman Niazi; Jim Dowling; Seif Haridi; Seif Haridi; Rui Oliveira; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Informations- och kommunikationsteknik; Information and Communication Technology;

    Abstract : For many years, researchers have investigated the use of database technology to manage file system metadata, with the goal of providing extensible typed metadata and support for fast, rich metadata search. However, earlier attempts failed mainly due to the reduced performance introduced by adding database operations to the file system’s critical path. READ MORE

  2. 2. Enabling and Achieving Self-Management for Large Scale Distributed Systems : Platform and Design Methodology for Self-Management

    Author : Ahmad Al-Shishtawy; Vladimir Vlassov; Seif Haridi; Peter Van Roy; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Autonomic Computing; Self-Management; Distributed Systems; Computer science; Datavetenskap;

    Abstract : Autonomic computing is a paradigm that aims at reducing administrative overhead by using autonomic managers to make applications self-managing. To better deal with large-scale dynamic environments; and to improve scalability, robustness, and performance; we advocate for distribution of management functions among several cooperative autonomic managers that coordinate their activities in order to achieve management objectives.

    Abstract : Autonomic computing aims at making computing systems self-managing by using autonomic managers in order to reduce obstacles caused by management complexity. This thesis presents results of research on self-management for large-scale distributed systems. READ MORE

  4. 4. Programming Model and Protocols for Reconfigurable Distributed Systems

    Author : Cosmin Ionel Arad; Seif Haridi; Gregory Chockler; Cosmin Arad; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; distributed systems; programming model; message-passing concurrency; nested hierarchical composition; reactive components; software architecture; dynamic reconfiguration; multi-core; discrete-event simulation; peer-to-peer; testing; debugging; distributed key-value stores; data replication; consistency; linearizability; network partition tolerance; consistent hashing; self-organization; scalability; elasticity; fault tolerance; consistent quorums;

    Abstract : Distributed systems are everywhere. From large datacenters to mobile devices, an ever richer assortment of applications and services relies on distributed systems, infrastructure, and protocols. Despite their ubiquity, testing and debugging distributed systems remains notoriously hard. READ MORE

  5. 5. On the Performance Analysis of Large Scale, Dynamic, Distributed and Parallel Systems

    Author : John Ardelius; Seif Haridi; Supriya Krishnamurthy; Mark Jelasity; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Performance analysis distributed systems; SRA - ICT; SRA - Informations- och kommunikationsteknik;

    Abstract : Evaluating the performance of large distributed applications is an important and non-trivial task. With the onset of Internet wide applications there is an increasing need to quantify reliability, dependability and performance of these systems, both as a guide in system design as well as a means to understand the fundamental properties of large-scale distributed systems.
