Scheduling file transfers over high speed networks - 09/14/2005

Edy Tan and Andres Guedez

Fast, efficient algorithms for large scale file transfers across high speed networks have long been sought by researchers who find that current networking technologies are just not good enough for the Terabytes of data that they find themselves analyzing and transferring on a daily basis. It is for this reason that the Department of Energy developed the UtlraScience Net across its main labs.

Our presentation focuses on the algorithm used to schedule the file transfers across this network and our implementation ETAG. Coupled with a simulation and a GUI, we hope that the work we've done this past summer will serve as a good basis for the future study, analysis and improvement of this algorithm.
