One of the goals of the WSNFS is to(More)
Many types of distributed file systems have been in widespread use for more than a decade. One of key issues in their design is how to reduce the latency when accessing remote files, with the solutions including cache replacement and file-prefetching technologies. In this paper, we propose a novel method called appointed file prefetching, in which the main(More)
