  1. Abstract — SAGE (the Scalable Adaptive Graphics Environment) and its successor SAGE2 (the Scalable Amplified Group Environment) are operating systems for managing content across wideband display environments. This paper documents the prevalent usage patterns of SAGE-enabled display walls in support of the e-Science enterprise, based on nearly 15 years of observations of the SAGE community. These patterns will help guide e-Science users and cyberinfrastructure developers on how best to leverage large tiled display walls, and the types of software services that could be provided in the future.

  3. DOI 10.1109/COMPSAC.2019.10284 Abstract—Hadoop is a popular data-analytics platform based on the MapReduce model. When analyzing extremely big data, hard disk drives are commonly used and Hadoop performance can be optimized by improving I/O performance. Hard disk drives have different performance depending on whether data are placed in the outer or inner disk zones. In this paper, we propose a method that uses knowledge of job characteristics to place data in hard disk drives so that Hadoop performance is improved. Files of a job that intensively and sequentially accesses the storage device are placed in outer disk tracks which have higher sequential access speed than inner tracks. Temporary and permanent files are placed in the outer and inner zones, respectively. This enables repeated usage of the faster zones by avoiding the use of the faster zones by permanent files. Our evaluation demonstrates that the proposed method improves the performance of Hadoop jobs by 15.0% over the normal case when file placement is not used. The proposed method also outperforms a previously proposed placement approach by 9.9%.
