CS Assistant Professor Rachit Agarwal has two papers at the 2016 Symposium on Operating Systems Design and Implementation, the flagship conference in systems. The first paper “Network Requirements for Resource Disaggregation” explores a fundamentally new way of designing computer systems that can overcome some of the limitations of today's computers. The second paper, “Simplifying Datacenter Network Debugging with PathDump,” presents new tools and techniques for real-time monitoring, debugging and verification of large-scale operational networks. The papers are attracting attention from both, the academic and the industrial communities, due to simplicity as well as potential impact on the two challenging real-world problems.
