MAUI: making smartphones last longer with code offload
TLDR
MAUI supports fine-grained code offload to maximize energy savings with minimal burden on the programmer, and decides at run-time which methods should be remotely executed, driven by an optimization engine that achieves the best energy savings possible under the mobile device's current connectivity constrains.

Measurement study of peer-to-peer file sharing systems
TLDR
This measurement study seeks to precisely characterize the population of end-user hosts that participate in Napster and Gnutella, and shows that there is significant heterogeneity and lack of cooperation across peers participating in these systems. Expand
SkipNet: A Scalable Overlay Network with Practical Locality Properties
TLDR
SkipNet is a scalable overlay network that provides controlled data placement and guaranteed routing locality by organizing data primarily by string names and can result in two disjoint, but well-connected overlay networks. Expand
Measurement, modeling, and analysis of a peer-to-peer file-sharing workload
TLDR
Unlike the Web, whose workload is driven by document change, it is demonstrated that clients' fetch-at-most-once behavior, the creation of new objects, and the addition of new clients to the system are the primary forces that drive multimedia workloads such as Kazaa. Expand
King: estimating latency between arbitrary internet end hosts
TLDR
The accuracy of King is significantly better than the accuracy of IDMaps, and that King tends to preserve order among its latency estimates, as well as a variety of measurement studies and applications that could benefit from the tool. Expand
An analysis of Internet content delivery systems
TLDR
This paper examines content delivery from the point of view of four content delivery systems: HTTP web traffic, the Akamai content delivery network, and Kazaa and Gnutella peer-to-peer file sharing traffic. Expand
Volley: Automated Data Placement for Geo-Distributed Cloud Services
TLDR
Volley is evaluated on the month-long Live Mesh trace, and it is found that, compared to a state-of-the-art heuristic, Volley simultaneously reduces datacenter capacity skew, reduces inter-datacenter traffic by over 1.8× and reduces 75th percentile user-latency by over 30%. Expand
Measuring and analyzing the characteristics of Napster and Gnutella hosts
TLDR
A detailed measurement study of the two popular peer-to-peer file sharing systems, namely Napster and Gnutella, shows that there is significant heterogeneity and lack of cooperation across peers participating in these systems. Expand
Home automation in the wild: challenges and opportunities
TLDR
The long term experience of households with home automation illustrates four barriers that need to be addressed before home automation becomes amenable to broader adoption, and provides several directions for further research. Expand
An Operating System for the Home
TLDR
HomeOS is a platform that bridges this gap by presenting users and developers with a PC-like abstraction for technology in the home by presenting network devices as peripherals with abstract interfaces, enables cross-device tasks via applications written against these interfaces, and gives users a management interface designed for the home environment.
