Scalable QoS-Based Resource Allocation in Hierarchical Networked Environment
In this paper, we study the problem of allocating end-toend bandwidth to each of multiple traffic flows in a largescale network. We adopt the QoS-based Resource Allocation Model (Q-RAM) [9], whereby each flow derives an utility based on the amount of its allocated bandwidth. Our goal therefore is to maximize the total utility derived across all network flows. The NP-hard nature of the resource allocation problem is compounded by the need to select an appropriate path between each source-destination pair. We propose a hierarchical decomposition scheme that allows the resource allocation problem to be solved in a decentralized and scalable fashion. The hierarchy we use is based on a (natural) partitioning of the network into subnets, with resource allocation decisions made on a subnet-by-subnet basis. A novel distributed transaction scheme is used to ensure that resource allocations are consistent across all the subnets traversed by each flow. We provide both analytical and experim...
