The mobile-app marketplace is highly competitive. To maintain and improve the quality of their apps, developers need data about how their app is performing in the wild. The asynchronous, multi-threaded nature of mobile apps makes tracing difficult. The difficulties are compounded by the resource limitations inherent in the mobile platform. To address this(More)
Mobile devices are configured with one or more wireless cards that provide limited radio-range and unreliable transmission. These energy-constrained devices are configured with a fixed amount of storage. A device may set aside a fraction of its local storage as a cache to minimize use of the network when servicing requests, enhancing metrics such as startup(More)
With wide spread deployment of wireless home networks, management of data across devices is becoming increasingly important. This is especially true for continuous media (audio and video clips) because they are large in size and are streamed at a pre-specified rate to support a display free from disruptions and delays. Caching of clips across devices is an(More)
Wireless mesh home networks are deployed widely due to their ease of installation and economical prices. A typical network may consist of a handful of devices such as PCs, laptops, wireless consumer electronic devices, and game consoles. Devices may share data by making the state of their caches dependent on one another using a cooperative caching technique(More)
This paper focuses on a greedy data placement strategy for a mesh network of peer-to-peer devices that collaborate to stream continuous media, audio and video clips. The greedy placement strategy, termed Simple, strives to maximize the number of references served by the local storage of a peer. We analyze two policies to realize this placement:(More)
Wireless home networks are widely deployed due to their low cost, ease of installation, and plug-and-play capabilities with consumer electronic devices. Participating devices may cache continuous media (audio and video clips) in order to reduce the demand for outside-the-home network resources and improve the average delay incurred from when a user(More)

While the cost per megabyte of storage is economical, sharing storage might be expensive because delivery of a clip occupying the shared storage requires bandwidth. This is especially true for mesh networks where devices are constrained by the radio-range and bandwidth of their wireless networking card. Assuming a device, termed a peer, is configured with a(More)
Domical is a recently introduced cooperative caching technique for streaming media (audio and video clips) in wireless home networks. It employs asymmetry of the available link bandwidths to control placement of data across the caches of different devices. A key research question is what are the merits of this design decision. To answer this question, we(More)
