A Resource Sharing System for Personal Computers in a LAN: Concepts, Design, and Experience
August 1987 (vol. 13 no. 8)
pp. 895-904
R.C. Summers, IBM Los Angeles Scientific Center
RM is an experimental prototype that supports the use of distributed services by personal computers in a LAN. Using a service request model, RM allows any PC on the LAN to offer and use services, which can be user-written or off-the-shelf applications. A user can start several activities that proceed concurrently and that use services offered by different machines. Program interfaces are provided for the development of distributed applications. Remote execution is supported within the service-request framework. The paper considers issues in resource sharing and discusses the choices that were made for RM. It provides an overview of RM concepts, design, and implementation, and reviews experience using the system.
Index Terms:
