Instability Phenomena in Underloaded Packet Networks with QoS Schedulers
— Instability in packet-switching networks is normally associated with overload conditions, since queueing network models show that, in simple configurations, only overload generates instability. However, some results showing that instability can happen also in underloaded queueing networks appeared in the recent literature. Underload instabilities can be produced by complex scheduling algorithms, that bear significant resemblance to the Quality of Service (QoS) schedulers considered today for packet networks. In this paper, we study with fluid models and with adversarial queueing theory possible underload instabilities due to strict-priority schedulers and to Generalized Processor Sharing (GPS) schedulers.
