Application Performance Analysis of Distributed File Systems under Cloud Computing Environment

The processing efficiency of data-intensive application on Hadoop with the general-purpose distributed file system such as Lustre, as the backend file system, is not clear. This paper focuses on the similarities and differences between Lustre and HDFS (Hadoop Distributed File System). We propose a Hadoop-Lustre platform and evaluate the performance differences of Lustre and HDFS […]

The data mining applications of shoulder pain patients treatment: physical therapy equipment usage approaches

The purpose of this paper is to apply the data mining techniques to discover and predict the recovery duration from physical therapy equipment usage patterns based on a classification system and establish selection rules of physical therapy techniques based on the association rule discovery method to support the decision making for physical therapists in the […]

Active queue management for congestion avoidance in multimedia streaming

Reducing the queue length and queuing delay in the buffer which in turn reduces congestion and latency in the network are of great importance for real-time video services. This paper proposes a congestion avoidance active queue management, tailored for scalable video coding (SVC). This distortion-constrained (DC) queue management mechanism maximally decreases the queue length and queuing delay […]

Agent based State Estimation in Smart Distribution Grid

A novel agent based static state estimation strategy for a specific class of physical systems is proposed. Physical systems, (e.g. smart distribution grid) which are well modeled using decentralized measurements and distributed state-space formulations are considered. In such systems, sensor nodes acting as agents estimate only a subset of states, instead of evaluating local estimates […]

Formal validation of QRS wave within ECG

Electrical sensors are used to detect and record the electrical activity of the heart over a period of time, this operation is referred to as Electrocardiography (ECG) in medical science. Hence ECG is composed of a set of signal waves that repeats themselves and are usually useful in medical diagnosis, where certain ECG patterns and […]

Improving system capacity based upon user-specific QoS for heterogeneous networks

This paper describes how user-specific QoS requirements may improve spectral utilization in heterogeneous networks. Throughput improvements of FTP (File Transfer Protocol) applications benefiting from the rate adaptation and MAC scheduling algorithms for video applications that incorporate user-specific QoS to improve system capacity are demonstrated. These improvements are achieved while user satisfaction for video applications, as […]

Modeling and Simulation of Data Flow for VLAN-Based Communication in Substations

IEC 61850, the standard for communication in substations, has resolved the interoperability between intelligent electronic devices (IEDs) from different vendors. Thus, the IEDs’ uniform communication standard contributes to the realization of more sophisticated functionality in substation automation systems. However, there are still several issues unsolved for the simulation, planning, and extension of substation communication network […]

Impact of IPSec on Real Time applications in IPv6 and 6to4 Tunneled Migration Network

IPSec is the amalgam of protocols dispensing security in IP networks. It has been the rudimentary security component in IPv4 and IPv6 networks providing for data authentication, integrity and confidentiality. Earlier security was not embedded at the IP level however with emergence of large scale public and corporate internets, the user data became vulnerable to […]

Research on dynamic routing algorithm of the combat collaboration communication network

The military communication system is the key element to make a victory in the battle. In general, the combat collaborative communication network is a multi-hop and autonomous system, which is composed by a group of mobile nodes with wireless communication ability. The network has some features such as no center, self-organizing, multi-hop routing and dynamic […]

Energy-Efficient Scheduling Mechanism for Indoor Wireless Sensor Networks

Energy efficiency is one of the most critical issues in wireless sensor networks, since the sensor nodes are usually battery powered. These energy-constrained sensor nodes are usually densely distributed in indoor environments, which leads to spatially correlated sensor data and low network efficiency. Thus, one way to improve energy efficiency is to reduce the redundancy […]
