The Wisconsin Multifacet Project has created a simulation toolset to characterize and evaluate the performance of multiprocessor hardware systems commonly used as database and web servers. We leverage an existing full-system functional simulation infrastructure (Simics [14]) as the basis around which to build a set of timing simulator modules for modeling(More)
Debuggers have been proven indispensable in improving software reliability. Unfortunately, on most real-life software, debuggers fail to deliver their most essential feature --- a faithful replay of the execution. The reason is non-determinism caused by multithreading and non-repeatable inputs. A common solution to faithful replay has been to record the(More)
IMPORTANCE Noncommunicable chronic diseases have become the leading causes of mortality and disease burden worldwide. OBJECTIVE To investigate the prevalence of diabetes and glycemic control in the Chinese adult population. DESIGN, SETTING, AND PARTICIPANTS Using a complex, multistage, probability sampling design, we conducted a cross-sectional survey(More)
We aim to improve reliability of multithreaded programs by proposing a dynamic detector that detects potentially erroneous program executions and their causes. We design and evaluate a <i>Serializability Violation Detector</i> (SVD) that has two unique goals: (I) triggering automatic recovery from erroneous executions using backward error recovery (BER), or(More)
Now at VMware. Multithreaded deterministic replay has important applications in cyclic debugging, fault tolerance and intrusion analysis. Memory race recording is a key technology for multithreaded deterministic replay. In this paper, we considerably improve our previous always-on Flight Data Recorder (FDR) in four ways: <b>&#8226;Longer recording</b> by(More)
Execution trace is an important tool in computer architecture research. Unfortunately, existing trace collection techniques are often slow (due to software tracing overheads) or expensive (due to special tracing hardware requirements). Regardless of the method of collection, detailed trace files are generally large and inconvenient to store and share. We(More)
Sports video has been widely studied due to its tremendous commercial potentials. Despite encouraging results from various specific sports games, it is almost impossible to extend a system for a new sports game because they usually employ different sets of low-level features appropriate for the specific games and closely coupled with the use of game(More)
This paper presents a novel framework called audio keywords to assist event detection in soccer video. Audio keyword is a middle-level representation that can bridge the gap between low-level features and high-level semantics. Audio keywords are created from low-level audio features by using support vector machine learning. The created audio keywords can be(More)
To explore the clinical significance of seven diabetes-related serum microRNAs (miR-9, miR-29a, miR-30d, miR34a, miR-124a, miR146a and miR375) during the pathogenesis of type 2 diabetes (T2D), 56 subjects were recruited to this study: 18 cases of newly diagnosed T2D (n-T2D) patients, 19 cases of pre-diabetes individuals (impaired glucose tolerance [IGT](More)
The bacterial pathogen Xanthomonas campestris pv. campestris co-ordinates virulence factor production and biofilm dispersal through a diffusible signal factor (DSF)-mediated cell-cell communication mechanism. The RpfC/RpfG two-component system plays a key role in DSF signal transduction and appears to modulate downstream DSF regulon by changing(More)
