The project will be approached with an iterative/incremental development model in two phases. The first phase of the project will be short, on a timescale of a few months. Phase-1 will look at task visstat2 to understand how the I/O works. The knowledge acquired in Phase-1 will be used to define the implementation plan and deliverables in Phase-2.
To understand how the I/O subsystem works in the table system, and what effect various sort orders have on it.
To understand the effect of tile shape versus various types of selections on MS and MMS.
To fix the parts of CASA identified in Phase-1.
To tune the performance of the I/O system in CASA
Propose improvements on the table system based on the acquired understanding.
