    SubjectDistributed Linux

    Hi all,
    the subject may be too ambitious, but thats not a prank i am
    playing... As a graduation project i intended to make linux distributed...
    by distributed i mean, enabling process migration, selecting eligible
    nodes, and ofcourse selecting candidate processes which would be migrated
    to the selected node. The following is the description of how i intended
    to do and would like inputs/suggessions from the gurus here.

    The processes would be dynamically migrated from one node to the other
    based on the selections of local process (candidate) and the remote node.
    The entire task along with its memory map will be migrated on to the other
    system (This system however would be later changed to migrate only
    referenced pages). The guest system (where the process originated) would
    however have a pseudo process running on it, which would not take much
    resources but would help in handling various signals/interrupts and in
    handling system calls. This method of handling helps is in migrating the
    user mode execution (which is on an average greater than 75%) to some
    other system on the network thus reducing the load on the guest system.

    As of now i am trying to device a migration system where the system mode
    computation is mostly carried out on the tasks original system, as this
    simplifies the implementation and helps maintaining the speed and
    efficiency in cases where the distribution is not needed.
