A distributed directory scheme for information access in mobile computers
Kumar, M. J., Venkatesh, S. and Panchanathan, S. 1996, A distributed directory scheme for information access in mobile computers, in HiPC 1996 : Proceedings of the 3rd International Conference on High Performance Computing, IEEE, Piscataway, N. J., pp. 138-143, doi: 10.1109/HIPC.1996.565812.
In this paper, we discuss the design aspects of a dynamic distributed directory scheme (DDS) to facilitate efficient and transparent access to information files in mobile environments. The proposed directory interface enables users of mobile computers to view a distributed file system on a network of computers as a globally shared file system. In order to counter some of the limitations of wireless communications, we propose improvised invalidation schemes that avoid false sharing and ensure uninterrupted usage under disconnected and low bandwidth conditions.
