Best-effort Networks: Modeling and Performance Analysis via Large Networks Asymptotics

Abstract

In this paper we introduce a class of Markov models, termed best-effort networks, designed to capture performance indices such as mean transfer times in data networks with best-effort service. We introduce the so-called min bandwidth sharing policy as a conservative approximation to the classical max-min policy. We establish necessary and sufficient… (More)
