  • Diagnosabilities of regular networks under three-valued comparison
           models
    • Authors: Xiang Xu, Shuming Zhou, Li Xu
      Pages: 251 - 258
      Abstract: Under the comparison model, earlier studies (Sengupta and Rhee, 1990) introduced <i>t</i>/<i>x</i>- and <i>t</i>[<i>x</i>]-diagnosis strategies based on multiple-valued logic. A multiprocessor system is <i>t</i>/<i>x</i>-(respectively, <i>t</i>[<i>x</i>]-) diagnosable if all faulty units can be uniquely identified from syndrome provided that there are no more than <i>t</i> faulty units and no more than <i>x</i> missing (respectively, incorrect) test outcomes. In this paper, we present some determinant characterisations on <i>t</i>/<i>x</i>-diagnosability and <i>t</i>[<i>x</i>]-diagnosability of multiprocessor systems based on regular network.

  • A sprouting graph-based approach to analysing timed workflow processes
           with shared resources
    • Authors: Yanhua Du, Ruyue Li, Benyuan Yang
      Pages: 259 - 268
      Abstract: Recently, temporal constraint satisfiability is regarded as an important criterion in the field of business process management. Existing methods do not fully investigate the various modes of shared resources, cannot provide the solutions for temporal violations or cannot develop the prototype system to automatically verify them. In this paper, we propose a new sprouting graph based approach to analysing temporal constraints of workflow processes with shared resources. First of all, in order to deal with various modes of shared resources we propose the corresponding patterns to record the executing information of resources. Then, how to automatically construct sprouting graph is presented, and the procedure of solving temporal violations is proposed. Finally, we also develop a prototype system. Compared with existing works, our approach is more effective and practical in the real business environment.

  • Detecting spammers using review graph
    • Authors: Chonglin Gu, Zhixiang He, Shi Chen, Hejiao Huang, Xiaohua Jia
      Pages: 269 - 278
      Abstract: In recent years, e-commerce is so popular that many consumers make transactions online. In order to make more profit, some merchants hire spammers to give high ratings to promote certain products, or to give malicious negative reviews to defame products of competitors. Those misleading reviews are destructive to the fairness of e-commerce environment. Therefore, it is very important to detect spammers who are always posting deceptive reviews. However, existing methods have low recognition rate for detecting spam reviews. In this paper, we first propose to use SCTD to reduce the whole dataset, so that we can focus on the periods when spammers are more likely to happen. And then, a similarity graph is built to describe the relationships between those reviewers who post reviews on the same products. Finally, we propose an iterative algorithm to calculate the spam score for each reviewer using the edge weight and key features of adjacent reviewers in the graph. Experiment results show that our proposed method is much more effective in spammers detection.

  • Evaluation and comparison of ten data race detection techniques
    • Authors: Zhen Yu, Zhen Yang, Xiaohong Su, Peijun Ma
      Pages: 279 - 288
      Abstract: Many techniques for dynamically detecting data races in multithreaded programs have been proposed. However, it is unclear how these techniques compare in terms of precision, overhead and scalability. This paper presents an experiment to evaluate ten data-race detection techniques on 100 small-scale or middle-scale C/C++ programs. The selected ten techniques, implemented in the same Maple framework, cover not only the classical but also the state-of-the-art in dynamical data-race detection. We compare the ten techniques and try to give reasonable explanations for why some techniques are weaker or stronger than other ones. Evaluation results show that no one technique performs perfectly for all programs according to the three criteria. Based on the evaluation and comparison, we give suggestions of which technique is the most suitable one to use when the target program exhibits particular characteristics. Later researchers can also benefit from our results to construct a better detection technique.

  • Reliable broadcast in anonymous distributed systems with fair lossy
           channels
    • Authors: Jian Tang, Mikel Larrea, Sergio Arévalo, Ernesto Jiménez

      Abstract: Reliable broadcast (RB) is a basic abstraction in distributed systems, because it allows processes to communicate consistently and reliably with each other. This abstraction has been extensively investigated in eponymous distributed systems (i.e., all processes have different identifiers) in contrast to the study in anonymous systems (i.e., all processes have no ID). Hence, this paper is aimed to study RB in anonymous distributed systems with fair lossy communication channels. Firstly, a non-quiescent RB algorithm tolerating an arbitrary number of crashed processes is given. Then, we introduce an anonymous perfect failure detector <i>AP</i>*. Finally, we propose an extended and quiescent RB algorithm using <i>AP</i>*, in which eventually no process sends messages.

  • Communication-aware task scheduling algorithm for heterogeneous
           computing
    • Authors: Tehui Huang, Tao Li, Qiankun Dong, Kezhao Zhao, Wenjing Ma, Yulu Yang
      Pages: 298 - 309
      Abstract: In this paper, we propose a new task scheduling algorithm for heterogeneous computing platforms, called communication-aware earliest finish time (CEFT). It combines the features of list-scheduling and task-duplication, where task priority is assigned according to communication ratio (CR), a notion defined to represent communication cost. We also present a duplication mechanism, which cooperates with CR to reduce the communication overhead. The time complexity of the algorithm is O(<i>v</i><SUP align="right">2</SUP> • <i>p</i>), for <i>v</i> tasks and <i>p</i> processors. The experiment results show that CEFT algorithm improves performance by 11% compared with the state-of-the-art list-based algorithm PEFT, and 15.6% compared with duplication-based algorithm HDCPD, in terms of scheduling length ratio. CEFT is the best algorithm compared with PEFT, HDCPD and HEFT regarding to efficiency and average surplus time as well.

  • An adaptive hybrid ARQ method for coexistence of ZigBee and WiFi
    • Authors: Quan Liu, Xiaorui Li, Zizhong Quan, Duzhong Zhang, Wenjun Xu
      Pages: 310 - 319
      Abstract: With the rapid development of modern communication technology, all kinds of radio technologies emerge endlessly. As different wireless networks share the same spectrum, coexistence of the heterogeneous networks becomes a challenging problem, especially the coexistence between ZigBee and WiFi. Much research has been done to solve this problem, and some coexistence methods have been proposed, such as the spectrum allocation, power control and so on. However, the proposed methods are either too complex to implement or need additional hardware cost. This paper proposes an easy and feasible method called AHA for ZigBee. The method modifies the current FEC coding method and additionally colligates energy sensing and adaptive retransmission. By implementing the method on ZigBee using USRP N210 devices, it is demonstrated that AHA effectively improves the communication performance of ZigBee under WiFi interference.

  • Thwarting Android app repackaging by executable code fragmentation
    • Authors: Ruxia Fan, Dingyi Fang, Zhanyong Tang, Xiaojiang Chen, Fangyuan Liu, Zhengqiao Li
      Pages: 320 - 331
      Abstract: With the increasing popularity and adoption of Android-based smartphones, there are more and more Android malwares in app marketplaces. What's more, most malwares are repackaged versions of legitimate applications. Existing solutions have mostly focused on post-mortem detection of repackaged application. Lately, packing mechanism has been proposed to enable self-defence for Android apps against repackaging. However, since current app packing systems all load the executable file into process memory in plaintext intactly, it can be easily dumped, which would enable the repackaging again. To address this problem, we propose a more effective protection model, DexSplit, to prevent app repackaging. Inspired by the weakness of current app packing model, DexSplit maintains the protected dex file as several pieces throughout this application's entire lifecycle, which makes it difficult to be dumped. Experiments with a DexSplit prototype using six typical apps show that DexSplit effectively defends against app repackaging threats with reasonable performance overhead.

  • A service industry perspective on software defined radio access networks
    • Authors: Casimer DeCusatis, Ioannis Papapanagiotou
      Pages: 332 - 340
      Abstract: Despite the rapid growth of service science, relatively little attention has been paid to the service architecture requirements in software defined radio access networks (SDRAN). In this concept paper, we propose to repurpose cloud computing network services to address issues specific to SDRAN. In particular, a multi-level backhaul slicing approach derived from cloud computing networks is discussed as a way to mitigate interference limited networks with a frequency reuse factor of one. Experimental demonstration of the control plane implementation in a virtual cloud network is presented, and implications on service provider development and training are also discussed.

  • U-Search: usage-based search with collective intelligence
    • Authors: Pengfei Yin, Guojun Wang, Wenjun Jiang
      Pages: 341 - 351
      Abstract: With the emergence of big data in the networking environments, searching the most suitable information for users is getting more challenging. We propose a usage-based search model, U-Search, to retrieve high quality resources which meet user's requirements. There are mainly two processes in our model, first-stage retrieval (FRet) and second-stage retrieval (SRet). At FRet, general users collect useful resources from a variety of channels and import them into the resource sharing platform after the resource checking. At SRet, a user inputs his search purpose firstly. Then, our model will match the purpose in the platform by judging the relevance between user profile and resource profile. Finally, the result list will be generated by integrating the usage of influential users and the calculated relevance. Experiment on the offline dataset shows that our model can truly provide the suitable search result to the user.

  • An energy-aware task consolidation algorithm for cloud computing data

    • Authors: Yonghua Xiong, Ya Chen, Keyuan Jiang, Yongbing Tang
      Pages: 352 - 358
      Abstract: Energy efficiency has become an increasingly prominent issue in cloud computing. Task consolidation is an effective way to maximise utilisation of cloud computing resources and reduce energy consumption. Presented in this paper is an improved energy-aware task consolidation algorithm to optimise the scheduling of tasks in cloud computing data centres. Our algorithm was developed based on the linear relationship between energy consumption and the CPU utilisation. Instead of consolidating tasks to a service node until its CPU utilisation reaches 100%, our algorithm uses an optimal point, where the CPU utilisation of a service node reaches 70%, and ensures that every task is preferentially assigned to service nodes that satisfy the 70% CPU utilisation. Our experiments demonstrate that our algorithm can significantly reduce the energy consumption of cloud computing data centres without performance degradation while maintaining good performance compared to the energy-conscious task consolidation (ECTC) approach.

  • Kernel mechanisms for turning a 3D MMOG from single into multi-server

    • Authors: Mei-Ling Chiang, Ching-Chung Tseng, Yen-Chu Chang, Shu-Chun Chao, Han Wang
      Pages: 359 - 371
      Abstract: A game designed with single-server architecture cannot serve a large number of players at the same time. To increase the service capacity, one needs either to upgrade the server with more powerful equipment or to redesign the game software to enable multi-server processing. Instead of modifying the game software, we experiment on using operating system mechanisms to effectively support 3D massively multiplayer online games in server clusters. The game connection handoff mechanism is implemented for transparently migrating a client's live game connection between servers. Besides, a load distribution policy treats a virtual world as a set of regions and distributes players on them to servers. It adjusts the range of regions for servers when some servers are added into or removed from the cluster. Experiments with a real 3D game show that under some constraints, the original single-server game is turned into one with server cluster architecture. The system capacity is increased.

  • Communication-aware virtual machine migration in cloud data centres
    • Authors: Weilian Xue, Wenxin Li, Heng Qi, Keqiu Li, Xiaoyi Tao, Xinhua Ji
      Pages: 372 - 380
      Abstract: The virtual machine (VM) migration technology is widely used in cloud data centres for achieving load balance, or saving energy consumption. Despite the potential benefits of the VM migrations, relatively little work has taken the inter-VM communication into account, with researchers mainly focusing on reducing the network cost of migration or the energy cost. In this paper, we focus on the VM migration problem in the context of large volume of inter-VM communication traffic. To this end, we make decisions on three problems of when, which, and to where the VMs shall be migrated. Specifically, we formulate an optimisation of minimising the number of migrations as well as the cost of both inter-VM traffic and migration traffic. To solve the optimisation, we design an efficient communication-aware VM migration algorithm and seamlessly combine three types of resources: CPU, memory and bandwidth. Finally, we conduct comprehensive experiments based on the CloudSim simulator. Extensive simulation results show that the proposed method can outperform the state-of-art RIAL and Sandpiper, in terms of the following three metrics: the number of migrations, the inter-VM communication cost, and the migration network cost.

  • Para-Join: an efficient parallel method for string similarity join
    • Authors: Cairong Yan, Jian Wang, Bin Zhu, Wenjing Guo
      Pages: 381 - 390
      Abstract: In big data area, a significant challenge about string similarity join is to find all similar pairs more efficiently. In this paper, we propose an efficient parallel method, called Para-Join which first splits the input into small sets according to the joint-frequency vector and the interval-vector of each string, and then joins the pairs for each small set in parallel. Para-RR algorithm and Para-RS algorithm are proposed to extend partion-based algorithm and adopt the multi-threading technique to implement the string similarity join within each set and between two different sets separately. We prove that Para-Join method can not only avoid reduplicate computation but also ensure the completeness of the result. We also put forward an effective pruning strategy to improve the performance. Experimental results show that our method achieves high efficiency and significantly outperforms state-of-the-art approaches.

  • Hardware support for message-passing in chip multi-processors
    • Authors: Yanhua Li, Youhui Zhang, Cihang Jiang, Weiming Zheng
      Pages: 391 - 402
      Abstract: Compared with the traditional shared-memory programming model, message passing models for chip multiprocessors (CMPs) have distinct advantages due to the relative ease of validation and the fact that they are more portable. This paper proposes a design of integrating a message-passing engine into each router of the network-on-chip as well as the programming-friendly message passing interface for these engines. Combined with the DMA mechanism, the proposed design applies the on-chip RAM as intermediary message buffer, and frees the CPU core from message-passing operations to a large extent. The detailed design and implementation, including the register-transfer-level (RTL) descriptions of the engine, are presented. Evaluations show that: compared with the software-based solution, it can decrease the message passing latency by one or two orders of magnitude. Co-simulation also demonstrates that the proposed designs effectively boost the performance of point-to-point communications on-chip, while the consumptions of power and chip-area are both limited.

  • Reboot-based recovery of performance anomalies in adaptive bitrate
           video-streaming services
    • Authors: Carlos A.S. Cunha, Luis A.M. Silva
      Pages: 403 - 414
      Abstract: Overcoming performance anomalies without server downtimes is of the utmost importance in videostreaming services. These services have large user abandonment costs when failures occur after users watch a significant part of a video. Reboot is the most popular and effective technique for overcoming performance anomalies but requires long server warm-up times. During warm-up, the server is unavailable or provides limited capacity to process end-users' requests. This paper presents a recovery technique for performance anomalies in HTTP streaming services, which relies on container-based virtualisation to implement an efficient multiphase server reboot technique that minimises the service downtime. The recovery process includes analysis of variance of request-response times to delimit the server warm-up period, after which the server is running at its full capacity. Experimental results show that the virtual container recovery process completes in 72 seconds, which contrasts with the 434 seconds required for a full operating system recovery. Both recovery types generate service downtimes imperceptible to end-users.

  • An energy-aware cooperative content distributed strategy based on MST
           for the mobile environment
    • Authors: Nao Wang, Gaocai Wang, Tianxiao Xie
      Pages: 415 - 422
      Abstract: In a mobile environment, they will consume less energy if mobile terminals download the common interesting content from each other by using short-range wireless transmission technology. This paper mainly focuses on energy-aware cooperative content distribution strategy for these mobile networks. Considering the characteristics of wireless networks and energy consumption of mobile terminals, we construct an energy consumption optimisation model with energy consumption fairness constraint and then solve it by using minimum spanning tree (MST) based on a distributed algorithm. We obtain simulation results under NS-2 tool, and compare them with the minimal energy consumption scheme and the no-cooperation scheme at total energy consumption and the fairness of energy consumption. Performance analysis results show that the proposed strategy can decrease the total energy consumption significantly for mobile terminals, and obtain the balance at the energy consumption.

  • Optimising the deployment of virtual machine image replicas in cloud

    • Authors: Cong Xu, Jiahai Yang, Jianping Weng, Ye Wang, Hui Yu
      Pages: 423 - 435
      Abstract: With the immense proliferation of cloud-based applications, the diversity of cloud services exacerbates the complexity of virtual machine provisioning. Addressing the performance issue, a series of solutions have been proposed to optimise the VM replica deployment. However, the majority of the existing mechanisms concentrate on optimising the locations of VM replicas, or resizing the scales of different replica sets; without an overall consideration of both the platform and application features. The purpose of this paper is to optimise the deployment of VM image replicas in cloud storage clusters. We study the impacts of both application and platform features on the VM instance installation rate, and further propose a novel mechanism to optimise the deployment of VM image replicas. Our deployment mechanism has been implemented in a real cloud storage cluster. Experimental results show that our mechanism improves the overall throughput of a storage cluster and speeds up the image installation operations.

  • Addressing statistical significance of fault injection: empirical studies
           of the soft error susceptibility
    • Authors: Qiang Guan, Nathan DeBardeleben, Sean Blanchard, Song Fu
      Pages: 436 - 452
      Abstract: Soft errors are becoming an important issue in computing systems. Near-threshold voltage (NTV), reduced circuit sizes, high performance computing (HPC), and high altitude computing all present interesting challenges in this area. Much of the existing literature has focused on hardware techniques to mitigate and measure soft errors at the hardware level. Instead, in this paper, we explore the soft error susceptibility of three common sorting algorithms at the software layer. We focus on the comparison operator and use our software fault injection tool to place faults with fine precision during the execution of these algorithms. We explore how the algorithm susceptibilities vary based on input and bit position and relate these faults back to the source code to study how algorithmic decisions impact the reliability of the codes. Finally, we look at the question of the number of fault injections required for statistical significance. Using standard practice equations used in hardware fault injection experiments, we calculate the number of injections that should be required to achieve confidence in our results. Then we show, empirically, that more fault injections are required before we gain confidence in our experiments.
