Distributed applications, especially the ones being I/O intensive, often access the storage subsystem in a nonsequential way (stride requests). Since such behaviours lower the overall system performance, many applications use parallel I/O libraries such as ROMIO to gather and reorder requests. In the meantime, as cluster usage grows, several applications… CONTINUE READING
