We consider buffer management policies for shared memory switches. We study the case of overloads resulting in packet loss, where the constraint is the limited shared memory capacity. The goal of the buffer management policy is that of maximizing the number of packets transmitted. The problem is online in nature, and thus we use competitive analysis to measure the performance of the buffer management policies. Our main result is to show that the well-known preemptive Longest Queue Drop (LQD… CONTINUE READING
