Abstract or Summary
  • The performance of multi-user workstations that access files over a local area network is studied. Such file systems, called distributed file systems, provide access of remote file systems with a great degree of transparency. The main objectives are To study the principles of distributed file systems. specifically NFS from Sun Microsystems and RFS from AT&T. To investigate a methodology to evaluate the performance of such file systems. To evaluate the performance of these network based file systems and study the effect of various implementation issues on their performance. The major conclusions drawn are Allowing larger block transfers from a remote resource to clients over the network improves performance. The benefits, however, are limited to disk block sizes of 12-16 Kbytes data. Performance can also be improved by proper layout structure on the disk. Enhancements of the server prove to be more cost effective than those of the client. Network contention is not the major bottleneck when a high speed network is being used. A configuration of computers sharing file systems over a LAN can have satisfactory performance in a software development environment.
