Bypass: A Tool for Building Split Execution Systems
Split execution is a common model for providing a friendly environment on a foreign machine. In this model, a remotely executing process sends some or all of its system calls back to a home environment for execution. Unfortunately, hand-coding split execution systems for experimentation and research is difficult and error-prone. We have built a tool, Bypass, for quickly producing portable and correct split execution systems for unmodified legacy applications. We demonstrate Bypass by using it to transparently connect a POSIX application to a simple data staging system based on the Globus toolkit.
