Due to the dynamic nature of grid environments, schedule algorithms always need assistance of a long-time-ahead load prediction to make decisions on how to use grid resources efficiently. In this paper, we present and evaluate a new hybrid model, which predicts the <i>n</i>-step-ahead load status by using interval values. This model integrates(More)
MapReduce is an important programming model for processing and generating large data sets in parallel. It is commonly applied in applications such as web indexing, data mining, machine learning, etc. As an open-source implementation of MapReduce, Hadoop is now widely used in industry. Virtualization, which is easy to configure and economical to use, shows(More)
The resources especially energy in wireless sensor networks (WSNs) are quite limited. Since sensor nodes are usually much dense, data sampled by sensor nodes have much redundancy, data aggregation becomes an effective method to eliminate redundancy, minimize the number of transmission, and then to save energy. Many applications can be deployed in WSNs and(More)
ChinaGrid Support Platform (CGSP) is proposed to provide grid toolkit for ChinaGrid application developers and specific grid constructors, in order to reduce their development cost as greatly as possible. CGSP extensible and reconfigurable framework, which satisfies the expansion and autonomy requirement of ChinaGrid, is mainly discussed in the paper. In(More)
Predicting grid performance is a complex task because heterogeneous resource nodes are involved in a distributed environment. Long execution workload on a grid is even harder to predict due to heavy load fluctuations. In this paper, we use Kalman filter to minimize the prediction errors. We apply Savitzky-Golay filter to train a sequence of confidence(More)
Emerging byte-addressable nonvolatile memories (NVMs) promise persistent memory, which allows processors to directly access persistent data in main memory. Yet, persistent memory systems need to guarantee a consistent memory state in the event of power loss or a system crash (i.e., crash consistency). To guarantee crash consistency, most prior works rely on(More)
Grid monitoring is essential for the grid management and efficiency improvement. ChinaGrid Super Vision (CGSV) is proposed for ChinaGrid to collect status information of each entity (such as resources, services, users, jobs, Network), and provide corresponding information data query and mining services. In this paper, CGSV architecture and its components(More)
Emerging non-volatile memory (NVM) offers non-volatility, byte-addressability and fast access at the same time. To make the best use of these properties, it has been shown by empirical evidence that programs should access NVM directly through CPU load and store instructions, so that the overhead of a traditional file system or database can be avoided. Thus,(More)
A virtual machine (VM) has been serving as a crucial component in cloud computing with its rich set of convenient features. The high overhead of a VM has been well addressed by hardware support such as Intel virtualization technology (VT), and by improvement in recent hypervisor implementation such as Xen, KVM, etc. However, the high demand on VM image(More)
