We describe a novel approach for designing network control algorithms that incorporate traffic models. Traffic models can be viewed as stochastic predictions about the future network state, and can be used to generate traces of potential future network behavior. Our approach is to use such traces to heuristically evaluate candidate control actions using a technique called hindsight optimization. In hindsight optimization, the finite-horizon “utility” achievable from a given system state is… CONTINUE READING
