I will evaluate the system's fully connected operation by performing time
measurements on operations performed by the same fully connected notebook
computer using only the TACO layer and using the new file system (on top of
TACO) and comparing these. If my performance goals are to be fulfilled, the
result should show no more overhead than can be explained by the implementation
of the server and client software (using the socket facilities) on top
of the existing system with TACO.
The system's weakly connected operation will be evaluated by performing the same
set of operations as above with a known and stable amount of available bandwidth.
The running times should be comparable to those of fully connected operation
when the lower bandwidth (and the higher latency) is taken into account.
