Online anomaly detection is an important step in data center management, requiring light-weight techniques that provide sufficient accuracy for subsequent diagnosis and management actions. This paper presents statistical techniques based on the Tukey and Relative Entropy statistics, and applies them to data collected from a production environment and to(More)
The online detection of anomalies is a vital element of operations in data centers and in utility clouds like Amazon EC2. Given ever-increasing data center sizes coupled with the complexities of systems software, applications, and workload patterns, such anomaly detection must operate automatically, at runtime, and without the need for prior knowledge about(More)
The emerging grids need an efficient replica location mechanism. In the experience of developing ChinaGrid supporting platform (CGSP), a grid middleware that builds a uniform platform supporting multiple grid-based applications, we meet a challenge of utilizing the properties of locality in replica location process to construct a practical and high(More)
It has been reported that various types of axonal injury of hypothalamo-neurohypophyseal tract can result in degeneration of the magnocellular neurons (MCNs) in hypothalamus and development of central diabetes insipidus (CDI). However, the mechanism of the degeneration and death of MCNs after hypophysectomy in vivo is still unclear. This present study was(More)
To effectively manage large-scale data centers and utility clouds, operators must understand current system and application behaviors. This requires continuous, real-time monitoring along with on-line analysis of the data captured by the monitoring system, i.e., integrated monitoring and analytics -- Monalytics [28]. A key challenge with such integration is(More)
Severe fever with thrombocytopenia syndrome virus (SFTSV) infections have recently been found in rural regions of Zhejiang. A severe fever with thrombocytopenia syndrome (SFTS) surveillance and sero-epidemiological investigation was conducted in the districts with outbreaks. During the study period of 2011-2014, a total of 51 SFTSV infection cases were(More)
Bi-section bandwidth is a critical resource in today's data centers because of the high cost and limited bandwidth of higher-level network switches and routers. This problem is aggravated in virtualized environments where a set of virtual machines, jointly implementing some service, may run across multiple L2 hops. Since data center administrators typically(More)
The purpose of this study was to examine longitudinally the relationship among glucose levels, pancreatic beta-cell function, and insulin resistance in women at high risk for type 2 diabetes. Oral glucose tolerance tests (OGTTs) and intravenous glucose tolerance tests (IVGTTs) were performed at 15-month intervals for up to 5 years or until fasting plasma(More)
OBJECTIVE Associations between single-nucleotide polymorphisms in the beta2-adrenergic receptor gene and asthma and wheeze have been inconsistent. Recent studies indicated that tobacco smoke affects beta2-adrenergic receptor gene expression and associations of beta2-adrenergic receptor gene variants with asthma in adults. We aimed to investigate the joint(More)
