Mixed Mobile and Fixed Transactions Scheduling in Mobile Computing Environment
Source: Loughborough University
As technological advances are made in software and hardware, the feasibility of accessing information "Any time, anywhere" is becoming a reality. In a mobile computing environment, a potentially large number of mobile and fixed users may simultaneously access shared data;. In this paper, the authors have addressed the problem and devised an effective OCC protocol with deferred adjustment of serialization order, called OCC-DF, for MDBS with mixed transactions. The characteristics of the OCC-DF protocol have been examined in detail by simulation. The results show that the performance of the OCC-DF protocol is consistently better than OCC-TI protocol over a wide range of system settings.
