DUNES (Distributed UNix ExtenSion)

Principal Investigator: Kihong Park

This research studies the problem of performing integrated real-time scheduling of distributed resources where both computation and communication requirements are taken into account. This complements, in part, the networking projects by providing end system scheduling support needed for provisioning a complete end-to-end control path for QoS management and distributed computation. DUNES is a prototype distributed operating system, built as an extension of Solaris UNIX, which implements integrated scheduling including communication-sensitive load balancing and real-time scheduling.
