Modeling Multiprocessor Systems


  • Synchronous Data Flow Graph (SDFG)
    The Synchronous DFG is similar to a directed graph which contains vertices and edges. Where each vertex represents the computation and the edges do the job of carrying the data from one vertex to another
    Vertex is represented by a circle whereas the edge is denoted as an arrow.


  • Homogeneous Synchronous DFG (HSDFG)
    When there is only one token at the input and only one token at the output in a SDFG, then it is said to be Homogeneous Synchronous DFG (HSDFG). Usually SDFG is converted into a HSDFG by making the input and output to have one token, so that there will be lot of small HSDFG created out of SDFG.


  • Acrylic Precedence Expansion Group (APEG)
    APEG is obtained by removing the delay elements from the SDFG. Each vertex takes inputs and giving outputs, if any such inputs contains delay, then the delay has to be removed to obtain the Acrylic Precedence Expansion Group (APEG)

Example for all the above models is given below · The above figure shows the Directed Graph which includes two instructions X and Y which belongs to Processor A (PA) and processor B (PB) respectively.
· The outputs from X are (a, b, c) and two of its outputs are sent to Y as inputs. There are two other inputs i, j are sent to Y. so the total inputs to Y is 4. This is indicated by a circle with 4 as the number of inputs. So this graph is said to be SDFG.
· To convert this in to HSDFG, there should be only one token at the input and output.
· In the above figure, there are two inputs to Y and it is being separated as one input, one from X1 and another from X2. (X1 & Y) makes one HSDFG and (X2 & Y) makes another HSDFG.
· APEG is obtained from removing the delay elements from an HSDFG. In the above figure there is no delay element between (X2 and Y), but there is a delay between (X1 and Y).
· So the following figure is APEG

Implementing a new system call in Kernel version 2.6.32

A system call is used by application or user programs to request service from the operating systems. Since the user programs does not have direct access to the kernel whereas the OS has the direct access. OS can access the hardware through system calls only. The following files has to be modified for implementing a system call /usr/src/linux-2.6.32.5/arch/x86/kernel/syscall_table_32.S /usr/src/linux-2.6.32.5/arch/x86/include/asm/unistd_32.h /usr/src/linux-2.6.32.5/include/linux/syscalls.h /usr/src/linux-2.6.32.5/Makefile New set of files to be created Create a new directory newcall/ inside the path “ /usr/src/linux-2.6.32.5/ ” Create new files Makefile, newcall.c and put them in the /usr/src/linux-2.6.32.5/newcall/ folder Create new user files (in any folder of Linux) to test the system call testnewcall.c, testnewcall.h (created in /home/pradeepkumar ) syscall_table_32.S Find the file /usr/src/linux-2.6.32.5/arch/x86/kernel/syscall_tab

How to Access MOODLE in Intranet and Internet

When Moodle is accessed either in Intranet or internet, there will not be any issue. But occasions when the MOODLE Site has to be accessed both in the intranet and in the Internet, here is a simple trick Server Used: IBM Blade Servers Operating system: Windows Server 2008 Moodle Version: 2.4 WAMP Server is used. Number of Users: 3000 (Students) + 200 (Faculty) Open the config.php from ~/moodle/config.php include these lines $CFG->wwwroot = 'http://'.$server_id.'/vitcc'; $CFG->dataroot  = 'C:\\wamp\\moodledata'; before the following line $CFG->directorypermissions = 07xx; Restart the WAMP Server and you can Check MOODLE Site both in Internet and Intranet. The above Image tells the intranet Link and the internet link can be opened outside the campus network
