    • Securing Provenance 

      Braun, Uri Jacob; Shinnar, Avraham; Seltzer, Margo I. (USENIX Association, 2008)
      Provenance describes how an object came to be in its present state. Intelligence dossiers, medical records and corporate financial reports capture provenance information. Many of these applications call for security, but ...
    • A Self-Scaling and Self-Configuring Benchmark for Web Servers 

      Manley, Stephen; Courage, Michael; Seltzer, Margo I. (1997)
      World Wide Web clients and servers have become some of the most important applications in our computing base today, and as such, we need realistic and meaningful ways of capturing their performance. Current server benchmarks ...
    • Stable and Accurate Network Coordinates 

      Ledlie, Jonathan; Seltzer, Margo I. (2005)
      Synthetic coordinate systems that mirror latencies between physical hosts have become a part of the toolbox networking researchers would like to use in real deployments. However, the most promising algorithm for building ...
    • StarFlow: A Script-Centric Data Analysis Environment 

      Angelino, Elaine Lee; Yamins, Daniel Louis Kanef; Seltzer, Margo I. (Springer, 2010)
      We introduce StarFlow, a script-centric environment for data analysis. StarFlow has four main features: (1) extraction of control and data-flow dependencies through a novel combination of static analysis, dynamic runtime ...
    • Strategyproof Computing: Systems Infrastructures for Self-Interested Parties 

      Ng, Chaki; Parkes, David C.; Seltzer, Margo I. (2003)
      The widespread deployment of high-speed internet access is ushering in a new era of distributed computing, in which parties both contribute to a global pool of shared resources and access the pooled resources to support ...
    • Towards General-Purpose Neural Network Computing 

      Eldridge, Schuyler; Waterland, Amos; Seltzer, Margo I.; Appavoo, Jonathan; Joshi, Ajay (2015)
      Machine learning is becoming pervasive, decades of research in neural network computation is now being leveraged to learn patterns in data and perform computations that are difficult to express using standard programming ...
    • Towards Query interoperability: PASSing PLUS 

      Braun, Uri Jacob; Seltzer, Margo I.; Chapman, Adriane; Blaustein, Barbara; Allen, M. David; Seligman, Len (USENIX Association, 2011-04-13)
      We describe our experiences importing PASS [16] provenance into PLUS [7]. Although both systems import and export provenance that conforms to the Open Provenance Model (OPM) [14], the two systems vary greatly with respect ...
    • Tracking Back References in a Write-Anywhere File System 

      Macko, Peter; Seltzer, Margo I.; Smith, Keith A. (2010)
      Many file systems reorganize data on disk, for example to defragment storage, shrink volumes, or migrate data between different classes of storage. Advanced file system features such as snapshots, writable clones, and ...
    • The Utility of File Names 

      Ellard, Daniel; Ledlie, Jonathan; Seltzer, Margo I. (2003)
      For typical workloads and file naming conventions, the size, lifespan, read/write ratio, and access pattern of nearly all files in a file system are accurately predicted by the name given to the file when it is created. ...
    • VINO: An Integrated Platform for Operating System and Database Research 

      Small, Christopher A.; Seltzer, Margo I. (1994)
      In 1981, Stonebraker wrote: "Operating system services in many existing systems are either too slow or inappropriate. Current DBMSs usually provide their own and make little or no use of those offered by the operating ...
    • VINO: The 1994 Fall Harvest 

      Endo, Yasuhiro; Seltzer, Margo I.; Small, Christopher A.; Smith, Keith (1994)
      Current operating systems are designed to provide least-common-denominator service to a variety of applications. They export few internal kernel facilities, and those which are exported have irregular interfaces. As a ...
    • Virtual Worlds: Fast and Strategyproof Auctions for Dynamic Resource Allocation 

      Ng, Chaki; Parkes, David C.; Seltzer, Margo I. (Association for Computing Machinery, 2003)
      We consider the problem of designing fast and strategyproof exchanges for dynamic resource allocation problems in distributed systems. The exchange is implemented as a sequence of auctions, with dynamically arriving requests ...
