With the advancement of MEMS technologies, wireless networks consist of tiny sensor devices hold the promise of revolutionizing sensing in a wide range of application domains because of their flexibility, low cost and ease of deployment. However, the constrained computation power, battery power, storage capacity and communication bandwidth of the tiny(More)
Efficient namespace metadata management is increasingly important as next-generation file systems are designed for peta and exascales. New schemes have been proposed, however, their evaluation has been insufficient due to a lack of appropriate namespace metadata traces. Specifically, no Big Data storage system metadata trace is publicly available and(More)
This paper describes a fast recovery mechanism that meets the requirements of embedded real-time systems. In general purpose computing, restart is an established technology for achieving high availability. Restart has also been used in soft real-time systems where the temporary interruption of service is undesirable but acceptable. However, it has not been(More)
Fault tolerance is an important aspect in real-time computing. In real-time control systems, tasks could be faulty due to various reasons. Faulty tasks may compromise the performance and safety of the whole system and even cause disastrous consequences. In this paper, we describe On-demand real-time guard (ORTEGA), a new software fault tolerance(More)
Fault tolerance is an important aspect in real-time computing.In real-time systems, tasks could be faulty due to various causes. Faulty tasks may compromise the safety and performance of the whole system and even cause disastrous consequences. In this paper, we study the possibilities of applying feedback control of software execution to real-time systems(More)
When real-time embedded system software needs to be upgraded, it will be more dependable if the new software is sufficiently tested on the actual deployment platform. The challenge is to provide a safeguard for protecting the normal operations from faulty upgrades. However, the safeguard must be not only efficient but also able to be added and taken away as(More)
