Adaptive Resource Management for Flow-Based IP/ATM Hybrid Switching Systems
This paper addresses a fundamental problem in resource management for flow-based hybrid switching systems. Such systems aim at efficient transport of layer-3 connectionless IP traffic over layer-2 connection-oriented ATM switching fabrics. One idea behind flow-based hybrid switching is to decompose individual IP packet streams into flows and then to classify them into short-lived and long-lived flows. While the short-lived flows are good for forwarding by the embedded software through permanent virtual connections (PVC's), the long-lived flows are more effectively transmitted by hardware through switched virtual connections (SVC's). Clearly the flow identification/classification mechanism will have great impact on the utilization of the system's resources. Unlike the traditional emphasis on resources such as link bandwidth and cell buffer size, our paper focuses on the resources which are directly associated with packet processing power, signaling capacity, and flow cach...
