We observe that an effect of ldquodisk resource sharingrdquo of multi-copy movie traffic has great impact on the blocking performance of a video-on-demand system. This observation leads us to establish a conjecture on how to balance the movie traffic load among ldquocombinationrdquo groups of disks to maximize the level of disk resource sharing. For a given file replication instance, the conjecture predicts in general an effective lower bound on the blocking performance of the system. It… CONTINUE READING
