ROOT: An Object-Oriented Data Analysis Framework
Analyzing the FTP logs of the more than 9,300 downloads of the ROOT binaries reveals the popularity of the different computing platforms in the mainly scientific community. Figure 4 shows the number of ROOT binaries downloaded per platform.
Linux is the clear leader, followed by the Microsoft platforms (Windows 95 and NT together equal Linux). The results for the other UNIX machines should probably be corrected a bit, since many machines are multi-user machines where a single download by a system manager will cover more than one user. Linux and Windows are typical single-user environments.
In this article I've given an overview of some of the main features of the ROOT data-handling system. However, many aspects and features of the system remain uncovered, such as the client/server classes (the TSocket, TServerSocket, TMonitor and TMessage classes), how to automatically generate HTML documentation (using the THtml class), remote database access (via the rootd daemon), advanced 3D graphics, etc. More on these topics can be found on the ROOT web site.

Free Webinar: Hadoop
How to Build an Optimal Hadoop Cluster to Store and Maintain Unlimited Amounts of Data Using Microservers
Realizing the promise of Apache® Hadoop® requires the effective deployment of compute, memory, storage and networking to achieve optimal results. With its flexibility and multitude of options, it is easy to over or under provision the server infrastructure, resulting in poor performance and high TCO. Join us for an in depth, technical discussion with industry experts from leading Hadoop and server companies who will provide insights into the key considerations for designing and deploying an optimal Hadoop cluster.
Some of key questions to be discussed are:
- What is the “typical” Hadoop cluster and what should be installed on the different machine types?
- Why should you consider the typical workload patterns when making your hardware decisions?
- Are all microservers created equal for Hadoop deployments?
- How do I plan for expansion if I require more compute, memory, storage or networking?
