Multi-cluster resource usage optimization by dynamic compute node borrowing

Compute Resource Lending Across Multiple Clusters Abstract This thesis investigates the problem of sharing resources between different compute clusters by lending them. In order to solve the problem, a software architecture in the form of a framework is provided. The central mechanism to manage the borrowing of resources consists of… Read more

Optimizing Compute Resource Usage Using Full Rescheduling

A series of new QoS challenges can be used to pose constraints on workflow schedulers. For this reason, the schedulers sometime cannot generate an optimal schedule based on the available information. Even though many schedulers using various techniques ranging from simple modified approaches to complex algorithms based on task prediction… Read more

Engineering a reliable and stateful Software Service for a Container Orchestration Environment

As container orchestration environments, like Kubernetes, get more popular due to their simpler deployment, problems arise. With this, certain requirements for those orchestration environments become essential, one of which is the reliability of the software services it contains. This thesis presents recommendations that help to achieve a reliable software service,… Read more

Evaluation of Learning Objectives for an Introductory Course in Programming

The evaluation of an introductory programming course can be a challenging task. Developing metrics to evaluate whether the students satisfied the learning objectives requires the consideration of aspects from didactic and programming perspectives. From a programming perspective, the manual assessment of programming submissions is undesirable. Thus, an automatic process is… Read more

Knowledge Modeling for cross-organizational DevOps Teams

Knowledge Modeling for cross-organizational DevOps Teams DevOps is a well known means to support the development of software by removing the borders between development and operations teams in software development projects. Software is continuously evolving and is not finished after it is shipped to the customer. Thus, DevOps strives… Read more

Progress Monitoring for an Introductory Course in Programming

Progress Monitoring for an Introductory Course in Programming Note: This thesis topic is strongly related to the preliminary course in programming that is offered in German language only. Thus a basic level in the German language is required. Abstract The RWTH Aachen University offers a preliminary course in computer science… Read more

Test Case Prioritization for Combinatorial Testing

Combinatorial testing is a model-based black-box testing technique which aims to reduce the number of required test cases while still providing high failure detection capabilities. To this end, it divides the input and environment of the system under test into a finite number of parameters and values. The combinatorial coverage… Read more

Using Kubernetes Operators for Distributed Data Processing Pipelines

Big Data and data processing has been the center of many emerged businesses over the last decade. As data amounts grow beyond treatability by single processors, scalability has become a rising concern for implementing efficient and fast structures to process data. Particularly, as data outgrows compute performance, scaling data processing… Read more

Continuous Operations in the Context od Edge Computing

Modern infrastructure and software systems are moving away from central data centers or cloud regions towards the edge of the infrastructure closer to the user. This trend results in highly distributed architecture for the software and imposes new problems and challenges for the operators of the software. Due to the… Read more
