Abstract:

This report presents the results of the second phase of the Distributed Operating System Design Study. The goal of this project is to advance the state of the art in several important distributed operating system DOS design areas. These areas include global system control and scheduling, failure detection and recovery, and features desirable for hosts that must operate in a DOS. Part of the effort is to characterize these design areas by identifying issues and problems related to each. After the problems are identified approaches and solutions to them suitable for use in DOS designs are to be developed. Topics covered include Goals for the DOS Design Basic DOS Architecture A DOS Reliability System Resource Management in Distributed Systems and A Simulation Model.
