Abstract Contemporary evidence suggests that most field faults in software applications are found in a small percentage of the software's components. This means that if these faulty software(More)
The results of therapy given to 74 children with advanced disease, abdominal non-Hodgkin's lymphoma were retrospectively evaluated with respect to the major prognostic factors related to disease outcome. The first 36 patients admitted in the study were treated with a modified LSA2-L2 protocol, and the remaining patients received the same regimen with the(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the influence of olfactory stimulation on the exploratory activity of captive-housed domestic cats. METHODS To evaluate the cats' exploratory behaviour, we devised three treatments. We placed a wooden cube (0.027 m(3)) covered with a cloth treated with rat scent on the floor of each cat enclosure (T3). We also used a cloth-covered(More)
Database systems serving cloud platforms must handle a large number of applications or tenants. Multi-tenancy database has been prevalent for hosting multiple tenants within a single DBMS while enabling effective resource sharing. Providing such performance goals is challenging for providers as they must balance the performance that they can deliver to(More)
Dynamic resource provisioning poses a major challenge for infrastructure providers because it is necessary to both forecast resource consumption and react to recent surges on demand for maintaining a tradeoff between quality of service and cost. However, approaches to workload analysis and forecast are affected due to noise in observed data, specially in(More)
Traditional requirements for persistence layers do not consider limitations of the development platforms available for mobile devices. In order to facilitate the development of applications, which need to store data, for mobile devices, these traditional requirements are reevaluated in this paper and a framework for object persistence is proposed. This(More)
A typical database workload consists of a mix of multiple query instances of dierent query types that run concurrently and interact with each other. That query interactions can have a signicant impact on database system performance. Hence, developing performance tuning algorithms for database systems requires taking these interactions into account. In this(More)
