Performance and Interoperability In Solar
A. Abram White
Dartmouth TR2002-427

Abstract: Ubiquitous computing promises to integrate computers into our physical environment, surrounding us with applications that are able to adapt to our dynamics. Solar is a software infrastructure designed to deliver contextual information to these applications. To serve the large number and wide variety of context-aware devices envisioned by ubiquitous computing, Solar must exhibit both high performance and the ability to interoperate with many computing platforms. We created a testing framework to measure the performance of distributed systems such as Solar, as well as a pluggable data-transfer mechanism to support the dissemination of information to heterogeneous applications. This paper explores the testing framework developed, analyzes its findings concerning the performance of the current Solar prototype, presents several optimizations to Solar and their effects, and finally discusses the design of the pluggable data-transfer mechanism.
