Mueller Receives Grant to Study Online Data Reconstruction for Supercomputers

Dr. Frank Mueller, associate professor of computer science, has been awarded $15,000 from the Oak Ridge National Laboratories for his research proposal titled “Online Data Reconstruction for Supercomputers.” 
The award will run from January 1, 2007 through June 30, 2007.
Research Abstract - This work seeks to build online recovery mechanisms for transient supercomputer job data. With the proposed on-demand data reconstruction, staged input files that are unavailable due to I/O node failures in a parallel file system are transparently patched from source copies using the recovery metadata.
