Load balancing and fault tolerance in workstation clusters migrating groups of communicating processes

In the past, several process migration facilities for distributed systems have been developed. Due to the complex nature of the subject, all those facilities have limitations that make them usable for only limited classes of applications and environments. We discuss some of the usual limitations and possible solutions. Specifically, we focus on migration of groups of collaborating processes between Unix systems without kernel modifications, and from this we derive the design for a migration system. First experiences with our implementation show that we reach performance figures for the migration that are close to those of real distributed operating system. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png ACM SIGOPS Operating Systems Review Association for Computing Machinery
