It is a challenging task that enables performance isolation while providing performance guarantees among applications that share storage infrastructure. This paper presents Admission-control-based Proportional Allocation (APA), a novel I/O request scheduler that combines the admission control of worst-case resources reserved with the proportional resources allocation to manage the bandwidth resources for performance isolation. APA has three characteristics: 1) admission control for I/O requests… CONTINUE READING
