Mining for Availability Models in Large-Scale Distributed Systems : A Case Study of SETI @ home

  title={Mining for Availability Models in Large-Scale Distributed Systems : A Case Study of SETI @ home},
  author={Bahman Javadi and Derrick Kondo and Jean-Marc Vincent and David P. Anderson},
In the age of cloud, Grid, P2P, and volunteer distributed computing, large-scale systems with tens of thousands of unreliable hosts are increasingly common. Invariably, these systems are composed of heterogeneous hosts whose individual availability often exhibit different statistical properties (for example stationary versus non-stationary behaviour) and fit different models (for example Exponential, Weibull, or Pareto probability distributions). In this paper, we describe an effective method… CONTINUE READING
