    IEEE Hot Topics in Operating Systems (HotOS) VII, March 1999
    [online][gzipped postscript 98.09 KB][postscript][PDF]
    Resource management is a fundamental concept in operating system design. In recent years it has become fashionable to consider the problem as an aspect of heterogeneous support for Quality of Service (`QoS'). Several authors have advocated the construction of an ``oracle''-like entity, with the effect of abstracting the fundamental problems into oblivion. In this paper we propose a radically different approach that attempts to address the underlying issues in a uniform and fundamentally scalable manner.

  • Xenoservers: accountable execution of untrusted code

    Many networked applications could benefit from executing closer to the data or services with which they interact. By doing this they may be able to circumvent long communication latencies or avoid transferring data over congested or expensive network links. However, no public infrastructure currently exists that enables this. We propose a system that can execute code supplied by an untrusted user, yet can charge this user for all resources consumed by the computation. Such servers could be deployed at strategic locations throughout the Internet, enabling network users such as content providers to distribute components of their applications in a manner that is both efficient and economical. We call such a server a Xenoserver. This paper discusses the construction of such a system, examining how accounting, billing, and quality of service provision can be achieved.

  • Self-Paging in the Nemesis Operating System
    Steven Hand
    Usenix Third Symposium on Operating Systems Design and Implementation, February 1999
    [online][gzipped postscript 150.84 KB]
    In contemporary operating systems, continuous media (CM) applications are sensitive to the behaviour of other tasks in the system. This is due to contention in the kernel (or in servers) between these applications. To properly support CM tasks, we require ``Quality of Service Firewalling'' between different applications. This paper presents a memory management system supporting Quality of Service (QoS) within the Nemesis operating system. It combines application-level paging techniques with isolation, exposure and responsibility in a manner we call self-paging. This enables rich virtual memory usage alongside (or even within) continuous media applications.

  • Controlling run-time compilation
    Timothy Harris
    IEEE Workshop on Programming Languages for Real-Time Industrial Applications, December 1998
    [gzipped postscript 43.20 KB]
    This paper describes a technique for integrating run-time compilation which is effectively pause free and for which the worst-case impact can be bounded. Three extensions to a JVM implementation are used. Firstly, a new scheduler allows the allocation of CPU time to threads to be controlled. Secondly, a code generator provides a mechanism for run-time compilation. Finally, a control interface allow application-specific compilation policies to be specified. By defining a compilation policy in which native code is generated in a designated compiler thread with a limited CPU allocation, it is possible to bound the worst-case impact of the compiler.

  • A new audio device driver abstraction
    Dickon Reed
    IEEE NOSSDAV98, July 1998
    [online][gzipped postscript 55.68 KB]
    Traditional audio device drivers are unable to provide low latency audio services and often do not provide audio mixing services. High quality audio has, compared to other media types, relatively low bandwidth, but is very sensitive to latency and errors. This paper presents a device driver abstraction that exploits the low bandwidth and constant bit rate of audio to provide multiple channels of low latency audio efficiently. It provides applications with a great deal of flexibility with regards to latency, blocking behaviour and mixing.

    IEEE Journal on Selected Areas in Communications, 16(3), April 1998
    [gzipped postscript 117.20 KB]
    The concept of a Service Specific Control Architecture (SSCA) in an ATM environment is presented. Here a Control Architecture denotes the out-of-band control and management mechanisms operation in a network or virtual network (or part thereof). An SSCA can use knowledge about the application it serves to make better use of network resources and thus provide a more efficient service. Such a control architecture can be designed to provide only the subset of control functions required by the applications it serves, thereby greatly reducing its complexity. The switchlet mechanism, which allows more than one control architecture to be operational simultaneously within the same network, enables the use of service specific control architectures. Implementation work is presented to illustrate the use of switchlets and SSCAs. This includes both an environment which uses switchlets to dynamically create virtual networks, and an SSCA used to provide video and audio conferencing facilities in an ATM environment

    Proceedings of IEEE Conference on Computer Networks, November 1997
    [online][gzipped postscript 51.24 KB]
    A vertically structured Operating System is one in which neither the ``kernel'' nor ``servers'' perform work on behalf of applications - the former because it exists only to multiplex the CPU, and the latter in order to avoid Quality of Service interference between the applications. Instead, wherever possible, the applications perform all of their own processing. Such a vertical structure provides many advantages for applications but leads to some interesting problems and opportunities for protocol stack implementation. This paper describes the techniques we used in our protocol implementation and the benefits that the vertical structure provided.

    IEEE NOSSDAV 97, May 1997.
    [online][gzipped postscript 115.99 KB]
    This paper describes a file system structure for supporting Quality of Service (QoS) guarantees. The device driver model clearly separates control and data path operations and presents a low level of abstraction. The data path module provides translation and protection of I/O requests enabling the file system layers to be executed as unprivileged code within shared libraries. Scheduling of low level operations within the device driver is used to provide isolation between clients and Quality of Service guarantees.

    Support for multimedia applications by general purpose computing platforms has been the subject of considerable research. Much of this work is based on an evolutionary strategy in which small changes to existing systems are made. The approach adopted here is to start ab initio with no backward compatibility constraints. This leads to a novel structure for an operating system. The structure aims to decouple applications from one another and to provide multiplexing of all resources, not just the CPU, at a low level. The motivation for this structure, a design based on the structure, and its implementation on a number of hardware platforms is described.

  • Linkage in the Nemesis Single Address Space Operating System
    Timothy Roscoe
    ACM Operating Systems Review 28(4), October 1994
    [online][gzipped postscript 61.17 KB]
    The recent interest in single address space operating systems has resulted in a number of papers, most of which gloss over the issues of linking programs to run in multiple protection domains. Some of the confusion about 64-bit address spaces is due to the almost pervasive use of UNIX and UNIX-like operating systems (such as Mach, Chorus and Amoeba) and languages with poor enforcement of abstraction like C and C++. This paper describes some of the linkage structure of Nemesis, a multi-service operating system being developed as part of the Pegasus project. Nemesis provides a simple and efficient mechanism for program linkage which provides rich sharing of text at a level of individual object classes.

    Multimedia applications place new demands upon processors, networks and operating systems. While some network designers, through ATM for example, hae considered revolutionary approaches to supporting multimedia, the same cannot be said for operating systems designers. Most work is evolutionary in nature attempting to identify additional features that can be added to existing systems to support multimedia. Here we describe the Pegasus project's attempt to buil an operating system from the ground up with multimedia support as a prime objective.
