  title={Modeling and Performance Control of Internet Servers},
  author={Tarek E Abdelzaher and Chenyang Lu},
The paper describes modeling and performance control of an Internet server using classical feedback control theory. We show that classical feedback' control can leverage on well-known real-time scheduling results to resolve one of the fundamental problems in Internetservers today; namely, achieving overload protection and performance guarantees in the presence of load unpredictability. The research is motivated by the increasing proliferation of a new category of Web-based services, such as… CONTINUE READING
