This paper presents ZHT, a zero-hop distributed hash table, which has been tuned for the requirements of high-end computing systems. ZHT aims to be a building block for future distributed systems, such as parallel and distributed file systems, distributed job management systems, and parallel programming systems. The goals of ZHT are delivering high… (More)
iii ACKNOWLEDGEMENT It gives me a great pleasure to thank all those people who have helped me and contributed for the successful completion of this work. First of all, I would like to thank my advisor Dr. Ioan Raicu for giving me the opportunity to work under him on this project. The course I took under him triggered my passion in the field of distributed… (More)
Exascale systems will bring significant challenges. This work attempts to addresses them through the Many-Task Computing (MTC) paradigm, by delivering data-aware job scheduling systems and fully asynchronous distributed architectures. MTC applications are structured as DAG graphs of tasks, with dependencies forming the edges. The asynchronous nature of MTC… (More)
Efficiently scheduling large number of jobs over large-scale distributed systems is critical in achieving high system utilization and throughput. Today's state-of-the-art job management systems have predominantly Master/Slaves architectures, which have inherent limitations, such as scalability issues at extreme scales (e.g. petascales and beyond) and single… (More)
The Advanced Networking Initiative (ANI) project from the Energy Services Network provides a 100 Gbps test bed, which offers the opportunity for evaluating applications and middleware used by scientific experiments. This test bed is a prototype of a 100 Gbps wide-area network backbone, which links several Department of Energy (DOE) national laboratories,… (More)
The present study is an attempt to enlist plants used to increase the secretion of milk among new mothers and lactating woman and to gather information on how this plant resources are used by indigenous people in Andhra Pradesh. This stud have brought to light 13 useful plants that were formerly either less known or unknown.
Ethnobotanical Studies were carried out in some parts of Ahdhra Pradesh and Tamil Nadu to identify orchids reported to have medicinal properties and to study their botanical distribution. This has resulted in the recording of 9 orchids used by the local population.
Which belongs to the family polypodiaceae is used as an antifertility agent among Kadars of Anamalai Hills Coimbatore District, Tamil Nadu.
