Abstract
In the present paper, we examine the problem of sup-
porting application-specific computation within a network
file server. Our objectives are (i) to introduce an easy to
use yet powerful architecture for executing both custom-
developed and legacy applications close to the stored data,
(ii) to investigate the performance improvement that we get
from data proximity in I/O-intensive processing, and (iii) to
exploit the I/O-traffic information available within the file
server for more effective resource management. One main
difference from previous active storage research is our em-
phasis on the expressive power and usability of the network
server interface. We describe an extensible active storage
