- Gelato@UNSW has shut down
- We've finished what we were paid for, and have no new
funding. The staff and students have moved onto other things. Therefore, although we'll be maintaining this website for
historical purposes as long as possible, we will not be doing any more
Highlights of the time we've had were:
- Removing the 2TB Filesystem size limit to make use of the new 64-bit
processor's addressing capabilities. Why allow 64 bits of virtual
address if you can only map a file that's 41 bit?
- A thorough examination of virtual memory subsystem and superpage tradeoffs on Itanium,
culminating in Ian Wienands Thesis
- Super-fast implementation of
- A useable user-level PCI-driver framework for Linux
- Improvements to the Linux I/O schedulers for single disk and for
hardware RAID systems
- A user-mode virtual machine monitor for Itanium
- The IA64 kernel autobuilder, that helped make the Itanium port
- Numerous bugfixes, patches, and improvements to Linux kernel, and
low-level (i.e., system software) userspace.
All past team members have information on the IA64wiki
The UNSW GELATO project started on February 27 2002. Research
published by the group can be accessed via our publications
The project officially ended after Linux.conf.au 2009.
Now we're just waiting for the Fat Lady to sing :-)
