  • Zusammenfassung

    This paper presents the integration of two collective I/O techniques into the Clusterfile parallel file system: disk-directed I/O and two-phase I/O. We show that global cooperative cache management improves the collective I/O performance. The solution focuses on integrating disk parallelism with other types of parallelism: memory (by buffering and caching on several nodes), network (by parallel I/O scheduling strategies) and processors (by redistributing the I/O related computation over several nodes). The performance results show considerable throughput increases over ROMIO&#8217s extended two-phase I/O.
