Abstract

Servers are an essential part of today's computing environments. High performance is one of the critical requirements that the applications demand from servers. It is often found that the key performance bottleneck on servers is the operating systems. We have investigated the commonly encountered performance anomalies and found that they are due to the mismatches between operating systems and the distinct characteristics of server applications. The characteristics pose several scalability issues in operating systems. We discuss possible scalable solutions and their trade-offs to support applications on servers efficiently.
