A Perspective on Distributed Computer Systems
  • J. Stankovic
  • Computer Science
  • IEEE Transactions on Computers
  • 1984
This paper identifies six fundamental distributed computer system research issues, points out open research problems in these areas, and describes how these six issues and solutions to problems associated with them transect the communications subnet, the distributed operating system, and the distributed database areas.

End-to-end arguments in the internet: principles, practices, and theory
This thesis elaborates the end-to-end arguments by putting them into a meaningful context of other principles as well as the current realities of the Internet, and argues for a revised normative take on the endto- end arguments that emphasizes the importance of edge redundancy as a crucial means of extending their scope beyond the classic considerations of data integrity alone.

A Protocol for Packet Network Intercommunication
A protocol that supports the sharing of resources that exist in different packet switching networks is presented. The protocol provides for variation in individual network packet sizes, transmissionExpand
Operating system design with computer network communication protocols
The information transfer requirements resulting from physically separated system components are examined and the adaptation of a standard end-to-end protocol is suggested for an efficient solution to the interprocess communication problems. Expand
Interprocess communication facilities for network operating systems
It is useful to look briefly at networks from the point of view of their goals, their possible configurations, and their level of integration. Expand
Designing an X.25 network-to-host interface
The paper results from studies performed for the Commission of the European Communities, and outlines a design for IBM 360 and 370 hosts that avoids application or system software changes by the use of a front-end processor. Expand
A system for interprocess communication in a resource sharing computer network
A system of communication between processes in a time-sharing system is described and the communication system is extended so that it may be used between processes distributed throughout a computerExpand
Operating system design considerations for the packet-switching environment
  • D. Retz
