                 modest-sized program of novel design. It provides
                 textual I/O and bitmap graphic services to both local
                 and remote client programs by offering a multiplexed
                 file service to those clients. It serves traditional
                 UNIX files like {\tt /dev/tty} as well as more unusual
                 ones that provide access to the mouse and the raw
                 screen. Bitmap graphics operations are provided by
                 serving a file called {\tt /dev/bitblt} that interprets
                 client messages to perform raster operations. The file
                 service that $ 8 1 / 2 $ offers its clients is
                 identical to that it uses for its own implementation,
                 so it is fundamentally no more than a multiplexer. This
                 architecture has some rewarding symmetries and can be

                 system, and the architecture used in the Plan 9
                 distributed file system. The emphasis of the comparison
                 is on generalized support for remote access to file
                 system resources, which include peripheral devices and
                 IPC communication channels as well as regular files.
                 The vnode architecture is an evolution of structures
                 and interfaces used in the original, stand-alone UNIX
                 file system. The Sprite architecture provides a
                 network-wide shared name space and emphasizes a strong
                 separation of the internal naming and I/O interfaces to
                 easily provide remote access to a variety of resources.
                 The Plan 9 architecture relies on per-process name
                 spaces and is organized around a single file system
                 protocol, 9P, through which a variety of devices and

                 gives text-oriented applications a clean, expressive,
                 and consistent style of interaction. Traditional window
                 systems support interactive client programs and offer
                 libraries of pre-defined operations such as pop-up
                 menus and buttons to promote a consistent user
                 interface among the clients. Acme instead provides its
                 clients with a fixed user interface and simple
                 conventions to encourage its uniform use. Clients
                 access the facilities of Acme through a file system
                 interface; Acme is in part a file server that exports
                 device-like files that may be manipulated to access and
                 control the contents of its windows. Written in a
                 concurrent programming language, Acme is structured as
                 a set of communicating processes that neatly subdivide
                 the various aspects of its tasks: display management,
                 input, file server, and so on.\par

                 Acme attaches distinct functions to the three mouse
                 buttons: the left selects text; the middle executes
                 textual commands; and the right combines context search
                 and file opening functions to integrate the various
                 applications and files in the system.\par

                 Acme works well enough to have developed a community
                 that uses it exclusively. Although Acme discourages the
                 traditional style of interaction based on typescript
                 windows teletypes its users find Acme's other services
                 render typescripts obsolete.",

                 applications running distributed systems on small
                 computers. It supports modular programming, strong type
                 checking at compile- and run-time, interprocess
                 communication over typed channels, automatic garbage
                 collection, and simple abstract data types. It is
                 designed for safe execution even on small machines
                 without hardware memory protection. In its initial
                 implementation for the Inferno operating system, object
                 programs generated by the Limbo compiler run using an
                 interpreter for a fixed virtual machine. Inferno and
                 its accompanying virtual machine run either stand-alone
                 on bare hardware or as an application under
                 conventional operating systems like Unix, Windows 95,
                 Windows NT, and Plan 9. For several architectures,
                 including Intel x86 and MIPS, Limbo object programs are
                 transformed on-the-fly into instructions for the

                 names muddle the result of operations such as copying a

                 To address these problems, the Plan 9 kernel has been

                 rooted, absolute name the program used to acquire it.
                 These names are maintained by an efficient method that
                 combines lexical processing such as evaluating {\tt ..}
                 by just removing the last path name element of a

                 examining the lexically maintained names
                 themselves.\par

                 A new kernel call, {\tt fd2path}, returns the file name

                 {\tt pwd} to debugging. Although this work was done in
                 Plan 9, Unix systems could also benefit from the

  abstract =     "Plumbing is a new mechanism for inter-process
                 communication in Plan 9, specifically the passing of
                 messages between interactive programs as part of the
                 user interface. Although plumbing shares some
                 properties with familiar notions such as cut and paste,
                 it offers a more general data exchange mechanism
                 without imposing a particular user interface.\par

                 The core of the plumbing system is a program called the
                 plumber, which handles all messages and dispatches and
                 reformats them according to configuration rules written
                 in a special-purpose language. This approach allows the
                 contents and context of a piece of data to define how
                 it is handled. Unlike with drag and drop or cut and
                 paste, the user doesn't need to deliver the data; the
                 contents of a plumbing message, as interpreted by the
                 plumbing rules, determine its destination.\par

                 The plumber has an unusual architecture: it is a
                 language-driven file server. This design has distinct
                 advantages. It makes plumbing easy to add to an
                 existing, Unix-like command environment; it guarantees
                 uniform handling of inter-application messages; it
                 off-loads from those applications most of the work of
                 extracting and dispatching messages; and it works

                 to make complex or repetitive editing tasks easy to
                 specify. The language is characterized by the
                 composition of regular expressions to describe the

                 files as a database, with changes logged as atomic
                 transactions, guides the implementation and makes a
                 general `undo' mechanism straightforward.\par

                 Sam is implemented as two processes connected by a
                 low-bandwidth stream, one process handling the display
                 and the other the editing algorithms. Therefore it can
                 run with the display process in a bitmap terminal and
                 the editor on a local host, with both processes on a
                 bitmap-equipped host, or with the display process in
                 the terminal and the editor in a remote host. By
                 suppressing the display process, it can even run

                 system has recently been redesigned to address some
                 technical shortcomings. This redesign provided an
                 opportunity also to make the system more convenient to
                 use securely. Plan 9 has thus improved in two ways not
                 usually seen together: it has become more secure {\em

                 The central component of the new architecture is a
                 per-user self-contained agent called {\tt factotum}.
                 {\tt Factotum} securely holds a copy of the user's keys
                 and negotiates authentication protocols, on behalf of
                 the user, with secure services around the network.
                 Concentrating security code in a single program offers
                 several advantages including: ease of update or repair
                 to broken security software and protocols; the ability
                 to run secure services at a lower privilege level;
                 uniform management of keys for all services; and an
                 opportunity to provide single sign on, even to
                 unchanged legacy applications. {\tt Factotum} has an

                 unique hash of a block's contents acts as the block
                 identifier for read and write operations. This approach
                 enforces a write-once policy, preventing accidental or
                 malicious destruction of data. In addition, duplicate
                 copies of a block can be coalesced, reducing the
                 consumption of storage and simplifying the
                 implementation of clients. Venti is a building block
                 for constructing a variety of storage applications such
                 as logical backup, physical backup, and snapshot file
                 systems.\par

                 We have built a prototype of the system and present

                 an access time for archival data that is comparable to
                 non-archival data. The feasibility of the write-once

                 Plan 9 operating system from Bell Labs, which runs such
                 applications as a non-privileged user and relies on a

                 with multi-million-thread programs running on
                 million-core systems [16]. This will no doubt stress
                 the contemporary HPC software model which was developed
                 in a time when 512 cores was a large number. Historical
                 approaches have been further challenged by the
                 increased desire of developers and end users for
                 supercomputer light weight kernels (LWKs) to support
                 the same environment, libraries, and tools as their
                 desktops. As a result, the emerging workloads of today
                 are far more sophisticated than those of the last two
                 decades when much of the HPC infrastructure was
                 developed, and feature the use of scripting
                 environments such as Python, dynamic libraries, and
                 complex multi-scale physics frameworks. Complicating
                 this picture is the overwhelming management, monitoring
                 and reliability problem created by the huge number of
                 nodes in a system of that magnitude.\par

                 We believe that a re-evaluation and exploration of
                 distributed system principals is called for in order to
                 address the challenges of ultrascale. To that end we
                 will be evaluating and extending the Plan 9 [21]
                 distributed system on the largest machines available to
                 us, namely the BG/L [28] and BG/P [10] supercomputers.
                 We have chosen Plan 9 based on our previous experiences
                 with it in combination with previous research [17]
                 which determined Plan 9 was a `right weight kernel',
                 balancing trade offs between LWKs and more general
                 purpose operating systems such as Linux. To deal with
                 issues of scale, we plan on leveraging the use of the
                 high-performance interconnects by system services as
                 well as exploring aggregation as more of a first-class
                 system construct -- providing dynamic hierarchical
                 organization and management of all resources. Our plan
                 is to evaluate the viability of these concepts at scale
                 as well as create an alternative development and
                 execution environment which compliments the features
                 and capabilities of the existing system software and
                 run time options. Our intent is to broaden the
                 application base as well as make the system as a whole
                 more approachable to a larger class of developers and
