    Automatic OS Kernel TCB Reduction by Leveraging Compile-Time Configurability

    The Linux kernel can be a threat to the dependability of systems because of its sheer size. A simple approach to produce smaller kernels is to manually configure the Linux kernel. However, the more than 11;000 configuration options available in recent Linux versions render this a demanding task. The authors...

    DQMP: A Decentralized Protocol to Enforce Global Quotas in Cloud Environments

    Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) clouds free companies of building infrastructures dimensioned for peak service demand and allow them to only pay for the resources they actually use. Being a PaaS cloud customer, on the one hand, offers a company the opportunity to provide applications in a dynamically scalable way. On the other...

    Advanced Virtualization Techniques for FAUmachine

    This paper presents advanced virtualization techniques used to implement the virtual PC FAUmachine. The authors created a just-in-time compiler that can transform kernel mode code into code suitable for direct execution within a user mode simulator. This approach allows the efficient virtualization of standard PC hardware. To improve the performance...

    Uncertainty About The Persistence Of Inflation

    This paper offers several contributions to actual research and discussion on monetary policy. It clarifies the relationship between uncertainty of inflation persistence and optimal monetary policy and discusses the consequences of the recent Blanchard proposal to implement a higher inflation target in the light of parameter uncertainty. Furthermore, it provides...

    Flow-Based TCP Connection Analysis

    This paper discusses the need for accurate analysis of TCP connections based on aggregated flow information. Due to increasing bandwidths in the Internet, flow metering is thought to be the a promising solution for network monitoring, because packet-oriented state-based analysis reaches its limits and fast hardware support for flow metering...

    Real-Time Enabled IEEE 802.15.4 Sensor Networks in Industrial Automation

    Sensor networks have been investigated in many scenarios and a good number of protocols have been developed. With the standardization of the IEEE 802.15.4 protocol, sensor networks became also an interesting topic in industrial automation. Here, the main focus is on real-time capabilities and reliability. The paper analyzed the IEEE...

    A New Approach to Modular Database Systems

    In this paper, the authors present their approach towards a modularized DataBase Management System (DBMS) whose components can be adapted at runtime and show the modularization of a DBMS beneath the record-oriented interface as a first step. Cross-cutting concerns like transactions pose thereby a challenge that they answer with Aspect-Oriented...
