  • INES at OOPSLA\SPLASH\Onward 2010

    Publicado em August 25th, 2010Expenses, Publications

    INES researchers André Santos, Fernando Castor, Márcio Ribeiro, Paulo Borba, Sérgio Soares, Tiago Massoni and Rohit Gheyi will attend SPLASH’2010 (ACM Conference on Systems, Programming, Languages, and Applications: Software for Humanity)

    Márcio Ribeiro and Paulo Borba have a paper entitled “Emergent Feature Modularization“, which has been accepted for publication in the Onward! 2010 proceedings, co-allocated with SPLASH. This paper is a result of the project “Tool Support for Software Product Lines Development and Evolution”.

    Fernando Castor had a poster accepted at SPLASH’2010. Publication’ details are:

    FARIAS, Rafael ; SOARES-NETO, Francisco ; CASTOR, Fernando . Hamster – Making Grid Middleware Fault-Tolerant. In: ACM Conference on Systems, Programming, Languages, and Applications: Software for Humanity (SPLASH’2010), 2010, Reno. SPLASH’2010 Companion. New York : ACM Press, 2010.

    Abstract: Organizations which use grid computing have to deal with events such as a machine turned off or a failed component. Some of these events can completely break a grid, wasting important resources. This paper presents Hamster, a monitoring and recovery mechanism for grid middleware. Its main goal is to maximize the use of available resources, recovering faulty middleware components and avoiding resource idleness or, worse, a complete grid stop. Hamster comprises a number of services that complement existing application-level checkpointing mechanisms. It has been integrated into the OurGrid middleware platform.
