A recent fluid-model formulation of an Internet congestion-control problem considers routers with small Droptail buffers. This paper is interested in the oscillatory regime of such networks and considers a topology where two TCP-controlled flows (each regulated by separate (edge) routers) merge to compete for bandwidth at a common (core) router. We describe(More)
We consider the problem of scheduling customers with deadlines in the G/M/c queue. We assume that customer deadlines are not known but that the scheduling policy has available to it partial information regarding stochastic relationships between the deadlines of eligible customers. We prove three main results, 1) in the case that deadlines are until the(More)
