MOSIX is a cluster management system that supports preemptive process migration. This paper presents the MOSIX Direct File System Access (DFSA), a provision that can improve the performance of cluster file systems by allowing a migrated process to directly access files in its current location. This capability, when combined with an appropriate file system, could substantially increase the I/O performance and reduce the network congestion by migrating an I/O intensive process to a file server… CONTINUE READING
