A case for end system multicast
TLDR
The potential benefits of transferring multicast functionality from end systems to routers significantly outweigh the performance penalty incurred and the results indicate that the performance penalties are low both from the application and the network perspectives.
Mercury: supporting scalable multi-attribute range queries
TLDR
The design of Mercury is presented, a scalable protocol for supporting multi-attribute range-based searches that supports multiple attributes as well as performs explicit load balancing and can be used to solve a key problem for an important class of distributed applications: distributed state maintenance for distributed games.
A comparison of mechanisms for improving TCP performance over wireless links
TLDR
The results show that a reliable link-layer protocol with some knowledge of TCP provides very good performance, and it is possible to achieve good performance without splitting the end-to-end connection at the base station.
Synopsis diffusion for robust aggregation in sensor networks
TLDR
This paper presents a general framework for achievingantly more accurate and reliable answers by combining energy-efficient multi-path routing schemes with techniques that avoid double-counting, and demonstrates the significant robustness, accuracy, and energy-efficiency improvements of synopsis diffusion over previous approaches.
Improving TCP/IP performance over wireless networks
TLDR
The snoop protocol is described, which is a simple protocol that improves TCP performance in wireless networks and modifies network-layer software mainly at abase station and preserves end-to-end TCP semantics.
Self-management in chaotic wireless deployments
TLDR
It is argued that end-client experience could be significantly improved by making chaotic wireless networks self-managing, and automated power control and rate adaptation algorithms to minimize interference among neighboring APs, while ensuring robust end- client performance are designed and evaluated.
Improving reliable transport and handoff performance in cellular wireless networks
TLDR
This paper describes the additions and modifications to the standard Internet protocol stack (TCP/IP) to improve end-to-end reliable transport performance in mobile environments and implements a routing protocol that enables low-latency handoff to occur with negligible data loss.
Measurement and Analysis of TCP Throughput Collapse in Cluster-based Storage Systems
TLDR
This paper analyzes this Incast problem, explores its sensitivity to various system parameters, and examines the effectiveness of alternative TCP- and Ethernet-level strategies in mitigating the TCP throughput collapse.
Enabling conferencing applications on the internet using an overlay muilticast architecture
TLDR
An extensive evaluation study of schemes for constructing overlay networks on a wide-area test-bed of about twenty hosts distributed around the Internet shows that it is important to adapt to both latency and bandwidth while constructing overlays optimized for conferencing applications.
An integrated congestion management architecture for Internet hosts
TLDR
An end-system architecture centered around a Congestion Manager (CM) that ensures proper congestion behavior and allows applications to easily adapt to network congestion, and concludes that the CM provides a useful and pragmatic framework for building adaptive Internet applications.
