Guest lecture by Giovane Moura

Next Friday, 11 December, in the first part of the lecture Giovane Moura will give a guest lecture about analyzing network management data. Giovane is Ph.D. student at the Design and Analysis of Communication Systems Group (DACS). His research topics include scalability of network analysis and intrusion detection, scalable storage for network flows, and self-management approaches for network management.

In the second part of the lecture we will discuss the SIGMOD 2008 paper by Christopher Olston et al.: “Pig Latin: A Not-So-Foreign Language for Data Processing”. The goal of Assignment 6 is to use Pig Latin for analyzing the network management data provided by Giovane and his collegues of the DACS group.

Assignment 5 (Sawzall) and Assignment 6 (Analyzing Network Management Data) for Distributed Data Processing using MapReduce are now on-line in the Blackboard Assignments section.
