This paper presents an experimental evaluation of the latency performance of several implementations of Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP) operating over HTTP, and compares these results with the performance Of JavaRMI, CORBA, HTTP, and with the TCP setup time. SOAP is an XML based protocol that supports RPC and message semantics. While SOAP has been(More)
The ability to efficiently discover information using partial knowledge (for example keywords, attributes or ranges) is important in large, decentralized, resource sharing distributed environments such as computational Grids and Peer-to-Peer (P2P) storage and retrieval systems. This paper presents a P2P information discovery system that supports flexible(More)
Web Services are emerging as a dominant paradigm for constructing and composing distributed business applications and enabling enterprise-wide interoperability. A critical factor to the overall utility of Web Services is a scalable, flexible and robust discovery mechanism. This paper presents a Peer-to-Peer (P2P) indexing system and associated P2P storage(More)
The Squid peer-to-peer information discovery system supports flexible queries using partial keywords, wildcards, and ranges. It is built on a structured overlay and uses data lookup protocols to guarantee that all existing data elements that match a query are found efficiently. Its main innovation is a dimension-reducing indexing scheme that effectively(More)
The increasing scale complexity, heterogeneity and dynamism of networks, systems and applications have made our computational and information infrastructure brittle, unmanageable and insecure. This has necessitated the investigation of an alternate paradigm for system and application design, which is based on strategies used by biological systems to deal(More)
This paper explores autonomic approaches for optimizing provisioning for heterogeneous workloads on enterprise Grids and clouds. Specifically, this paper presents a decentralized, robust online clustering approach that addresses the distributed nature of these environments, and can be used to detect patterns and trends, and use this information to optimize(More)
The increasing complexity, heterogeneity, and dynamism of emerging pervasive Grid environments and applications has necessitated the development of autonomic self-managing solutions, that are inspired by biological systems and deal with similar challenges of complexity, heterogeneity, and uncertainty. This paper introduces Project AutoMate and describes its(More)
Emerging high-performance distributed computing environments are enabling new end-to-end formulations in science and engineering that involve multiple interacting processes and data-intensive application workflows. For example, current fusion simulation efforts are exploring coupled models and codes that simultaneously simulate separate application(More)
This paper de nes, describes and illustrates a systems engineering process for development of software systems implementing high performance computing applications. The example which drives the creation of this process is development of a exible and extendible program development infrastructure for parallel structured adaptive meshes, the HDDA/DAGH package.(More)
