Video-on-Demand (VoD) is a typical human-to-machine communication system, in which the application server resources are typically shared by multiple end users and are designed to satisfy normal peak traffic volume based on time-of-day effect. However, the event that catches the attention of a large number of people will trigger flash crowd, which causes unexpected and overloading surge of traffic. In this paper, a Dynamic-Resource-Allocation (DRA) based flash crowd mitigation algorithm for… CONTINUE READING
