Energy--Performance Trade-Offs via the EP Queue
Peter G. Harrison, Naresh M. Patel, William J. Knottenbelt
Article No.: 6
DOI: 10.1145/2818726

We introduce the EP queue -- a significant generalization of the MB/G/1 queue that has state-dependent service time probability distributions and incorporates power-up for first arrivals and power-down for idle periods. We...

Performance Evaluation of Dynamic Page Allocation Strategies in SSDs
Arash Tavakkol, Pooyan Mehrvarzy, Mohammad Arjomand, Hamid Sarbazi-Azad
Article No.: 7
DOI: 10.1145/2829974

Solid-state drives (SSDs) with tens of NAND flash chips and highly parallel architectures are widely used in enterprise and client storage systems. As any write operation in NAND flash is preceded by a slow erase operation, an out-of-place update...

Coding Rate Analysis of Forbidden Overlap Codes in High-Speed Buses
Cheng-Shang Chang, Jay Cheng, Tien-Ke Huang, Duan-Shin Lee, Cheng-Yu Chen
Article No.: 8
DOI: 10.1145/2846091

One of the main problems in deep submicron designs of high-speed buses is propagation delay due to the crosstalk effect. To alleviate the crosstalk effect, there are several types of crosstalk avoidance codes proposed in the literature. In this...

Estimating the Transmission Probability in Wireless Networks with Configuration Models
Paola Bermolen, Matthieu Jonckheere, Federico Larroca, Pascal Moyal
Article No.: 9
DOI: 10.1145/2858795

We propose a new methodology to estimate the probability of successful transmissions for random access scheduling in wireless networks, in particular those using Carrier Sense Multiple Access (CSMA). Instead of focusing on spatial configurations...
