The Performance of Remote Display Mechanisms for Thin-Client Computing

S. Jae Yang, Jason Nieh, Matt Selsky, Nikhil Tiwari Proceedings of the 2002 USENIX Annual Technical Conference, Monterey, CA, June 10-15, 2002, pp. 131-146 Abstract The growing popularity of thin-client systems makes it important to determine the factors that govern the performance of these thin-client architectures. To assess the viability of the thin-client computing model, we measured the performance of …

The Design and Implementation of Elastic Quotas: A System for Flexible File System Management

Ozgur Can Leonard, Jason Nieh, Erez Zadok, Jeffrey Osborn, Ariye Shater, Charles Wright Department of Computer Science, Columbia University Technical Report , CUCS-014-02, June 2002 Abstract We introduce elastic quotas, a disk space management technique that makes disk space an elastic resource like CPU and memory. Elastic quotas allow all users to use unlimited amounts of available disk space while …
