  • Fry, Gerald; West, Richard (Boston University Computer Science Department, 2003-11-07)
    Current research on Internet-based distributed systems emphasizes the scalability of overlay topologies for efficient search and retrieval of data items, as well as routing amongst peers. However, most existing approaches ...
  • West, Richard; Fry, Gerald; Wong, Gary (Boston University Computer Science Department, 2005-02-23)
    Research on the construction of logical overlay networks has gained significance in recent times. This is partly due to work on peer-to-peer (P2P) systems for locating and retrieving distributed data objects, and also ...
  • West, Richard; Wong, Gary (Boston University Computer Science Department, 2005-02-23)
    This paper is centered around the design of a thread- and memory-safe language, primarily for the compilation of application-specific services for extensible operating systems. We describe various issues that have influenced ...
  • West, Richard; Schwan, Karsten; Poellabauer, Christian (Boston University Computer Science Department, 2003-08-29)
    This paper describes an algorithm for scheduling packets in real-time multimedia data streams. Common to these classes of data streams are service constraints in terms of bandwidth and delay. However, it is typical for ...
  • Qi, Xin; Parmer, Gabriel; West, Richard; Gloudon, Jason; Hernandez, Luis (Boston University Computer Science Department, 2004-03-01)
    Current low-level networking abstractions on modern operating systems are commonly implemented in the kernel to provide sufficient performance for general purpose applications. However, it is desirable for high performance ...
  • West, Richard; Gloudon, Jason; Qi, Xin; Parmer, Gabriel; Gloudon, Jason (Boston University Computer Science Department, 2005-02-23)
    This paper focuses on an efficient user-level method for the deployment of application-specific extensions, using commodity operating systems and hardware. A sandboxing technique is described that supports multiple extensions ...
  • Zhang, Yuting; Bestavros, Azer; Guirguis, Mina; Matta, Ibrahim; West, Richard (Boston University Computer Science Department, 2004-07-19)
    With the increased use of "Virtual Machines" (VMs) as vehicles that isolate applications running on the same host, it is necessary to devise techniques that enable multiple VMs to share underlying resources both fairly and ...
  • Parmer, Gabriel; West, Richard; Fry, Gerald (Boston University Computer Science Department, 2006-07-14)
    Overlay networks have become popular in recent times for content distribution and end-system multicasting of media streams. In the latter case, the motivation is based on the lack of widespread deployment of IP multicast ...
  • West, Richard; Gloudon, Jason (Boston University Computer Science Department, 2003-06-01)
    Extensible systems allow services to be configured and deployed for the specific needs of individual applications. This paper describes a safe and efficient method for user-level extensibility that requires only minimal ...
  • Zhang, Yuting; West, Richard; Qi, Xin (Boston University Computer Science Department, 2004-03-23)
    This paper presents a new approach to window-constrained scheduling, suitable for multimedia and weakly-hard real-time systems. We originally developed an algorithm, called Dynamic Window-Constrained Scheduling (DWCS), ...
