Dynamic Adaptive File Management in a Local Area Network
In light of advances in processor and networking technology, especially the emergenceof networkattached disks,the traditional clientserver architecture of file systems has become suboptimal for many computation/data intensive applications. In this paper, we introduce a revised architecture for file management employing network attached storage: the dynamic file server environment (Dynamo). Dynamo introduces two main architectural innovations: (1) To provide high scalability, the file management functions are mainly performed cooperativelyby the clients in the system. Furthermore,data is transferred directly to the client’s cache from network-attached disks, thus avoiding copies from a disk to the server buffer and then over the network to the client. (2) Dynamo uses a cooperative cache management which employs a decentralized lottery-based page replacement strategy. We show via performance benchmarks run on the Dynamo system and simulation results how this architecture increases...
