The reports that follow cover a broad range of topics. These reports present a characterization of synchronization behavior and overhead in commercial databases, and a hardware-based lock predictor based on the characterization; design and implementation of a partitioned protocol offload architecture that provides Direct Data Placement (DDP) functionality and better utilizes both the network interface and the host CPU; design and implementation of file indexing inside file systems for fast content searching support; comparison-based server verification techniques for stateful and semi-deterministic protocols such as NFSv4; data-plane protection techniques for link-state routing protocols such as OSPF, which is resilient to the existence of compromised routers; and performance comparison of in-band and out-of-band data access strategies in file systems.
While not all of these reports report definitely and positively, all are worth reading because they involve novelty in the systems explored and bring forth interesting research questions.
