Control of systems with flexible multi-server pools: a shadow routing approach

Abstract

A general model with multiple input flows (classes) and several flexible multi-server pools is considered. We propose a robust, generic scheme for routing new arrivals, which optimally balances server pools’ loads, without the knowledge of the flow input rates and without solving any optimization problem. The scheme is based on Shadow routing in a virtual… (More)
