Improving existing mechanisms

Our primary objective in the project is to design and implement mechanisms which improve upon the shortcomings of existing mechanisms.

Current Work

  • Researching about algorithms used for finding memory sharing opportunities across VMs
  • Researching about different data structures and mechanisms that would help in fast searching for similar pages e.g. hashing, bloom filters

For the future

  • Understanding how memory page sharing is implemented in Xen hypervisor based virtualization environments
  • Enhancing dynamic memory allocation in virtualized environments by integrating with memory sharing features
  • Evaluation of the integrated mechanism
