Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
This collection of 45 papers and 13 posters from the September 2002 conference focuses on the software and hardware that will enable cluster computing. The researchers discuss task management, network hardware, programming clusters, and scalable clusters. Among the topics are experience in offloading protocol processing to a programmable NIC, selective buddy allocation for scheduling parallel jobs on clusters, and high performance user level sockets over gigabit ethernet. Other topics include compiling tiled iteration spaces for clusters, an evaluation of JavaSymphony for cluster applications, and using idle disks in a cluster as a high performance storage system.
