Papers of Interest in ATC 22

ATC 22 has 18 tracks, and 64 papers are accepted.

  1. Distributed Systems 1/2
  2. Machine Learning 1/2/3
  3. Disaggregated Systems (what are the differences between disaggregated system and distributed system?)
  4. Networking 1/2
  5. Deployed Systems 1/2 (don’ t know what is )

Paper titles in ATC are more interesting than those in SIGCOMM or INFOCOM.

Investigating Managed Language Runtime Performance: Why JavaScript and Python are 8x and 29x slower than C++, yet Java and Go can be Faster?

This paper compares the performance of Java, Go, JavaScript and Python with C++.

We found that V8/Node.js and CPython exhibit excessive overheads, executing applications 8.01x and 29.50x slower on average than their C++ counterparts.
In contrast, OpenJDK and Go applications are performance competitive to C++, running only 1.43x and 1.30x slower.

Features of managed language:

  • Easier readability and usability
  • Dynamic type checking
  • Memory management with garbage collection
  • Dynamic memory safety checks

Firebolt: Finding Bugs in Programmable Data Plane Generators


We apply Firebolt to three popular open-source DP generators, i.e., Marple, Sonata, and Poise.

I’m interested in these DP generators.
