We have two primary efforts planned for extensions to the plugin scheduler.
- Additional information services: We plan to add functionalities
to enable the application developer to access and use data concerning the
internal state of the DIET server (e.g., the current length of request
queues). As other performance measurement and evaluation tools are developed
both within and external to the DIET project (see
Chapter 10), some tools are already available to
enable such information to be incorporated in the context of the plugin
- Enhanced aggregation methods: The plugin scheduler implemented
in the current release enables the DIET system to account for user-defined
factors in the server selection process. However, the priority aggregation
method is fairly rudimentary and lacks the power to express many imaginable
comparison mechanisms. We plan to investigate methods to embed code into
DIET agents (e.g., a simple expression interpreter) in a manner that is secure
and that preserves performance.
