Time-Constrained Scheduling of Weighted Packets on Trees and Meshes
The time-constrained packet routing problem is to schedule a set of packets to be transmitted through a multinode network, where every packet has a source and a destination (as in traditional packet routing problems) as well as a release time and a deadline. The objective is to schedule the maximum number of packets subject to deadline constraints. This problem is studied in [1], where it is shown that the problem is NP-Complete even when the underlying topology is a linear array. Approximation algorithms are also provided in [1] for the linear array and the unidirectional ring for both the case where packets may be buffered in transit and the case where they may not be. In this paper we extend the results of [1] in two directions. First, we consider the more general network topologies of trees and two-dimensional meshes. Second, we associate with each packet a measure of utility, called a weight, and study the problem of maximizing the total weight of the packets that are scheduled su...
