Implementation of Process Migration in Amoeba

  title={Implementation of Process Migration in Amoeba},
  author={Chris Steketee and Weiping Zhu and Philip Moseley},
The design of a process migration mechanism for the Amoeba distributed operating system is described. The primary motivation for this implementation is to carry out experimental and realistic studies of load balancing algo rithms for a distributed operating system. Our aim has been the implementation of a mechanism which is general, efficient and fully transparent, and which is reliable in the presence of network and processor failures.
