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.
