Simulation of Search and Distribution Methods for Jobs in a WEB Operating System (WOS)

Unger, Herwig ; Kropf, Peter ; Babin, Gilbert ; Böhme, Thomas

In: High Performance Computing Symposium 98, 2008, p. 253-259

Internet or WEB computing concepts, such as the Web Operating System (WOS™), require suitable methods for finding the most effective hardware and software environment for an application execution on the network. We present an efficient search strategy and show that the resulting communication load penalty is well acceptable while preventing the network from being flooded by administrative...

Overview About the Resource Scheduling in the Web Operating System (WOS)

Unger, Herwig ; Kropf, Peter

In: Proceedings of the Workshop on Distributed Computing on the Web (DCW’98), 1998, p. 134-140

A number of load sharing/balancing mechanisms were developed in order to improve the execution of a distributed application in a workstation cluster or any other kind of distribute darchitectures. In fact, it would be possible to execute applications on any machine of a world wide system. However, the notion of ‘distributed systems’ has gained in importance and attraction with the...

Resource Warehouses; a Distributed Information Warehouse Infrastructure

Khoury, Simon ; Kropf, Peter ; Babin, Gilbert

In: Advanced Simulation Technologies Conference (ASTC), 2002, p. 239-244

This paper presents work related to the design of distributed systems, which is useful for emerging Internet applications. We propose algorithms for searching and managing distributed information about resources and services using locally available warehouses. The concept of warehouses has been introduced in the Web Operating System (WOS) (Kropf 1999). Warehouses have the ability to decide which...
