Robust traffic engineering: game theoretic perspective
On-line routing algorithms deal with requests as they arrive without assuming any knowledge of the underlying process that generates the streams of requests. By contrast, off-line...

Multiple-queue backfilling scheduling with priorities and reservations for parallel systems
We describe a new, non-FCFS policy to schedule parallel jobs on systems that may be part of a computational grid. Our algorithm continuously monitors the system (i.e., the intensi...

Understanding the slowdown of large jobs in an M/GI/1 system
We explore the performance of an M/GI/1 queue under various scheduling policies from the perspective of a new metric: the it slowdown experienced by largest jobs. We consider sche...
