|Abstract||Distributed operating systems have been in the experimental stage for a number of years now, but few have progressed to the point of actually being used in a production environment. It is our belief that the reason lies primarily with the performance of these systems---they tend to be fairly slow compared to traditional single computer systems. The Amoeba system has been designed with high performance in mind. In this paper some performance measurements of Amoeba are presented and comparisons are made with UNIX on the SUN, as well as with some other interesting systems. In particular, short remote procedure calls take 1.4 msec and long data transfers achieve a user-to-user bandwidth of 677 kbytes/sec. Furthermore, the file server is so fast that it is limited by the communication bandwidth to 677 kbytes/sec. The real speed of the file server is too high to measure. To the best of our knowledge, these are the best figures yet reported in the literature for the class of hardware used.|

Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) under its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT) has initiated the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project to develop a framework of virtual repository of learning resources with a single-window search facility. Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find out the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDLI is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for leading vernacular languages, (currently Hindi, Bengali and several other languages are available). It is designed to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular forms of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is being developed to help students to prepare for entrance and competitive examinations, to enable people to learn and prepare from best practices from all over the world and to facilitate researchers to perform inter-linked exploration from multiple sources. It is being developed at Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDLI is a conglomeration of freely available or institutionally contributed or donated or publisher managed contents. Almost all these contents are hosted and accessed from respective sources. The responsibility for authenticity, relevance, completeness, accuracy, reliability and suitability of these contents rests with the respective organization and NDLI has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDLI portal up and running smoothly unless there are some unavoidable technical issues.
Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), has sponsored and funded the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project.
