An implementation of a coordinate based location system

David R. Spence

November 2003, 12 pages


This paper explains the co-ordinate based location system built for XenoSearch, a resource discovery system in the XenoServer Open Platform. The system is builds on the work of GNP, Lighthouse and many more recent schemes. We also present results from various combinations of algorithms to perform the actual co-ordinate calculation based on GNP, Lighthouse and spring based systems and show our implementations of the various algorithms give similar prediction errors.
