  author={Mohammad Peyravian and Ajay D. Kshemkalyani},
Connection preemption can be a means to provide available and reliable services to high-priority connections when a network is heavily loaded and connection request arrival patterns are unknown, or when the network experiences link or node failures. We present a simulation study of preemption in a general connection-oriented network setting. Based on the observations made in this study, we have developed two optimal connection preemption selection algorithms that operate in a decentralized… CONTINUE READING
