Updating Delicious...

After my absence I am updating my delicious links. New articles include (much of my research work is posted to delicious which is available as an RSS feed or as a list on the sidebar of this page):

Architecture: End to End Arguments in System Design...
This paper presents a design principle that helps guide placement of functions among the modules of a distributed computer system. This principle, called the end-to-end argument, suggests that functions placed at low levels of a system may be redundant o
to systems...

Virtualisation: Automating Xen Virtual Machine Deployment...
While consolidating physical to virtual machines using Xen,we want to be able to deploy and manage virtual machines in the same way we manage and deploy physical machines. For operators and support people there should be no difference between virtual and to...

Development: Cocoa Subclasses & Delegates...
In Java subclassing, nearly everything was quite common. So common in fact, that Sun provided generic subclasses in quite a few cases. Objective-C and Cocoa, however, have a different approach. Marcus walks you through the different approaches used in...

Shell: Reading Function & Cursor Keys In A Shell Script...
This month, Chris F.A. Johnson presents Reading Function and Cursor Keys in a Shell Script...

Databases: Learning from The Web...
The Web has much to teach us about managing and modeling distributed data. It's time we began listening.

Databases: Why Your Data Won't Mix...
Making heterogeneous schemas play nicely together has challenged computer scientists for years, but we're on the path to better behavior...

Databases: Managing Semi-Structured Data...
Most of the world's data does not fit into a traditional database structure. Fortunately, work is being done on various fronts to harness this vast information pool...

Development: Pragmatic Exceptions...
A general rule for showing obvious exception messages (such as in a dialog) should be. Show the message only if there is an immediate, reasonable course of action users can take...

Development: Memory Management & Embedded Databases...
Building an infrastructure with opimisation in mind...

Development: Wide-Character Format String Vulnerabilities
Strategies for handling format string weaknesses...

Linux: The SIG11 Problem (Hardware Debugging)...
This FAQ describes what the possible causes are for an effect that bothers lots of people lately. Namely that a linux(*)-kernel (or any other large package for that matter) compile crashes with a "signal 11". The cause can be software or (most likely)...

Virtualisation: Building your own VMWare VMM Management Websites...
SDK Programming - building your own Virtual Machine Management Websites...

Virtualisation: ESX Server Performance Tuning Lab...
VMware ESX Server Performance Troubleshooting...

Embedded: SoC, Function allocation and specification...
The system-on-a-chip (SoC) has emerged as the ideal replacement for multipart chipsets. The SoC design promises a single-chip solution, lower power, less board real estate, simpler integration, and lower part counts -- all of which are clearly quite attra...

Systems Management: The Role Of The Human In Autonomic Systems...
Autonomic computing enables IT systems to manage themselves. The autonomic computing architecture provides a foundation on which self-managing information technology systems can be built...

Grid: Grid architecture in the Telescience Project...
What does it mean to "grid-enable" an end-to-end process? In the first article of this series, we describe the grid-based system architecture developed in the Telescience Project at the National Center for Microscopy and Imaging Research.

Virtualisation: Windows Virtualisation Technology for Intel Architecture...
The first presentation covers with greater detail what appeared on the public virtualization roadmap webcast, while the remaining two disclose information never appeared till now. So it really worth the read...

Virtualisation: Windows Virtualization Technology for AMD Architecture
The first presentation covers with greater detail what appeared on the public virtualization roadmap webcast, while the remaining two disclose information never appeared till now. So it really worth the read...

Virtualisation: Windows Virtualisation Architecture...
The first presentation covers with greater detail what appeared on the public virtualization roadmap webcast, while the remaining two disclose information never appeared till now. So its really worth the read...

Virtualisation: Architectural Considerations & Other Evaluation Criteria...
A new white paper, Virtualization: Architectural Considerations And Other Evaluation Criteria, describes the operation of virtualization designs and examines the issues...

Virtualisation: Slicing & Dicing Servers...
Part of an emerging family of containment technologies, server virtualization is designed to help reduce server sprawl — the proliferation of individual hardware servers and accompanying management and resource allocation problems...

Performance: Extreme Software Scaling...
Chip multiprocessors have introduced a new dimension in scaling for application developers, operating system designers, and deployment specialists.

Research: TinyDisk...
TinyDisk is a program from saving and retrieving files from TinyURL and TinyURL-like services such as Nanourl. It overlays a write-once-read-many anonymous, persistent and globally shared filesystem...
