Cluster Computing on the Fly: P2P Scheduling of Idle Cycles in the Internet

  title={Cluster Computing on the Fly: P2P Scheduling of Idle Cycles in the Internet},
  author={Virginia Mary Lo and Daniel Zappala and Dayi Zhou and Yuhong Liu and Shanyu Zhao},
Peer-to-peer computing, the harnessing of idle compute cycles throughout the Internet, offers exciting new research challenges in the converging domains of networking and distributed computing. Our system,Cluster Computing on the Fly, seeks to harvest cycles from ordinary users in an open access, noninstitutional environment. The CCOF cycle sharing system encompasses all activities involved in the management of idle cycles: overlay construction for hosts donating cycles, resource discovery… CONTINUE READING
