Automatic dynamic run-time optical network reservations

Automatic dynamic run-time optical network reservations
Optical networking may dramatically change high performance distributed computing. One reason is that optical networks can support provisioning dynamically configurable lightpaths, a form of circuit switching, through reservations. However, to use it (and all other network reservation mechanisms), the user or developer must modify the application. We present a system, VRESERVE, that automatically and dynamically creates network reservation requests based on the inferred network demands of running distributed and/or parallel applications with no modification to the application or operating system, and no input from the user or developer. Our execution model is a collection of virtual machines interconnected by an overlay network. The overlay network infers application demands, providing a dynamic run-time assessment of the application’s topology and traffic load matrix. We then reserve lightpaths corresponding to the topology and use the overlay to forward virtual network traffic...
