Managing a portfolio of overlay paths
In recent years, several architectures have been proposed and developed for supporting streaming applications that take advantage of multiple paths through the network simultaneously. We consider the problem of computing a set of paths and the relative amounts of data conveyed through them in order to provide the desired level of performance for data streams. Given the expectation, variance, and covariance of an appropriate metric of interest for overlay links, we attempt to solve the underlying resource allocation problem by applying methods used in managing a finance portfolio. We observe that the flow allocation problem requires constrained application of these methods, and we discuss the tractability of enforcing the constraints. We finally present some simulation results to evaluate the effectiveness of our proposed techniques.
