NVCache: A Plug-and-Play NVMM-based I/O Booster for Legacy Systems

Published in 51th IEEE/IFIP International Conference on Dependable Systems and Networks (DSN 21), 2021

This paper introduces NVCache, an approach that uses a non-volatile main memory (NVMM) as a write cache to improve the write performance of legacy applications.

DUF: Dynamic Uncore Frequency scaling to reduce power consumption

Published in (HAL), 2019

This paper studies how the uncore frequency can be used as a leverage to improvepower consumption. We propose DUF, a daemon process that dynamically adaptsthe uncore frequency to reduce an application power consumption with a user-definedlimit on performance degradation.

Using differential execution analysis to identify thread interference

Published in IEEE Transactions on Parallel and Distributed Systems, VOL. 30, NO. 12, December 2019, 2019

In this paper, we propose a holistic metric able to pinpoint the blocks of code that suffer interference the most, regardless of the interference cause. Our metric uses performance variation as a universal indicator of interference problems.
