PODOS -- The design and implementation of a performance oriented Linux cluster
PODOS is a performance oriented distributed operating system being developed to harness the performance capabilities of a cluster-computing environment. In order to address the growing demand for performance, we are designing a distributed operating system (DOS) that can utilize the computing potential of a number of systems. Earlier clustering approaches have traditionally stressed more on resource sharing or reliability and have given lesser priority to performance. PODOS adds just four new components to the existing Linux operating system to make it distributed. These components are a Communication Manager (CM), a PODOS Distributed File System (PDFS), a Resource Manager (RM), and Global Interprocess Communication (GIPC). This paper addresses the design and implementation of the various components of the PODOS system.
