A new single image architecture for distributed computing systems

In this paper, we describe a single system image (SSI) architecture for distributed systems. The SSI architecture is constructed through three components: single process space (SPS), process migration, and dynamic load balancing. These components attempt to share all available resources in the cluster among all executing processes, so that the distributed system operates like a single node with much more computing power. To this end, we first resolve broken pipe problems and bind errors on server socket in process migration. Second, we realize SPS based on block process identifier (PID) allocation. Finally, we design and implement a dynamic load balancing scheme. The dynamic load balancing scheme exploits our novel metric, effective tasks, to effectively distribute jobs to a large distributed system. The experimental results show that these three components present scalability, new functionality, and performance improvement in distributed systems.
