Christoph Kuehbacher from the University of Augsburg has defended his PhD thesis entitled Analyzable Dataflow Executions With Adaptive Redundancy.
In his thesis, he has developed a runtime environment (RTE) for the fault-tolerant execution of dataflow applications modelled as directed acyclic graphs. The RTE is able to adaptively select an appropriate level of redundancy and runs on various multi- and manycore architectures. The tasks of such applications are then scheduled regarding their dependencies, the required levels of redundancy, and the specified deadline of the application. The work was developed in the scope of the ADMORPH project, more specifically as part of the activities on Work Package 2 (Task 2.3) and Work Package 3 (Task 3.3).
