  1. 1. Graceful Degradation of Adaptive Multiprocessor Systems on a Chip

    Author : Stavros Tzilis; [2015]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; design space exploration; runtime management; graceful degradation; system optimization; Defect and fault tolerance;

    Abstract : This thesis explores the potential for using existing flexibility in order to allow Multiprocessor Systems on a Chip to function in the presence of permanent faults and to prolong their lifetime. Technology scaling in accordancewith Moore’s law brings up reliability challenges and forces the use of potentially unreliable hardware components. READ MORE

  2. 2. Analysing, modelling and controlling power-performance tradeoffs in data center infrastructures

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå University

    Author : Jakub Krzywda; Umeå universitet.; [2017]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY;

    Abstract : The aim of this thesis is to analyse the power-performance tradeoffs in datacenter servers, create models that capture these tradeoffs, and propose controllers to optimise the use of data center infrastructures taking the tradeoffs into consideration. The main research problem that we investigate in this thesis is how to increase the power efficiency of data center servers taking into account the power-performance tradeoffs. READ MORE

  3. 3. Intrusion Detection and Protection of Application Servers

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå University

    Author : Magnus Almgren; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; active learning; application-based intrusion detection; intrusion tolerance; intrusion detection; Computer security;

    Abstract : The protection of application servers using intrusion detection andother related techniques is studied in this thesis. A thorough reviewis first made of taxonomies for intrusion detectionsystems (IDSs) and how these can help to understand the basicfunctionality and problems of intrusion detection. READ MORE

  4. 4. Runtime Management of Multiprocessor Systems for Fault Tolerance, Energy Efficiency and Load Balancing

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå University

    Author : Stavros Tzilis; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Fault Tolerance; Algorithms; Runtime Management; Multiprocessors; Performance; Adaptive Systems; Load Balancing; Energy Efficiency;

    Abstract : Efficiency of modern multiprocessor systems is hurt by unpredictable events: aging causes permanent faults that disable components; application spawnings and terminations taking place at arbitrary times, affect energy proportionality, causing energy waste; load imbalances reduce resource utilization, penalizing performance. This thesis demonstrates how runtime management can mitigate the negative effects of unpredictable events, making decisions guided by a combination of static information known in advance and parameters that only become known at runtime.

  5. 5. Miniaturized Multifunctional System Architecture for Satellites and Robotics

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Fredrik Bruhn; Uppsala universitet.; [2005]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Space technology; Multifunctional design; Spacecraft; Robotics; Microengineering; MEMS; Exploration; Distributed intelligence; Mission Design; Rymdteknik; TECHNOLOGY Other technology Space engineering; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Övriga teknikvetenskaper Rymdteknik;

    Abstract : This thesis describes and evaluates the design of nanospacecraft based on advanced multifunctional microsystems building blocks. These systems bring substantial improvements of the performance of nanosatellites and enable new space exploration, e.g. interplanetary science missions using minute space probes. READ MORE
