Patent Number: US5613155

Abstract: Logic for receiving client write requests, bundling them, and sending a reply back to the client(s) once the requests are committed to storage. The logic is included in an intermediate server which includes a write request module having a write bundling module included and a write reply module. A separate reply is sent for each of the individual client write requests. Out of order requests are handled by checking for a contiguous write having a lower file location (offset) than a current write request and placing that lower ordered offset request first in the bundle.
