Towards Quality of Service Based Resource Management for Cluster-Based Image Retrieval Systems

  title={Towards Quality of Service Based Resource Management for Cluster-Based Image Retrieval Systems},
  author={Andreas Br{\"u}ning and F. Drews and M. Hoefer and O. Kao and U. Rerrer},
The main research in the area of image databases addresses the improvement of retrieval quality and the speedup of the query processing. A number of image retrieval systems reached meanwhile a level, where these are used in real-world applications and thus create new demands. In particular dealing with a large, simultaneous number of users and queries requires concepts for resource management, which strongly consider the underlying architecture and the various approaches for image retrieval… Expand

Robust Task Allocation for Dynamic Distributed Real-Time Systems Subject to Multiple Environmental Parameters
An approximation algorithm for task allocation is developed, and it finds allocations that are maximally robust against dynamic changes in multiple external variables that will help to reduce expensive reallocations triggered by changes in unpredictable environments. Expand

A resource allocation model for QoS management
This work presents an analytical model for QoS management in systems which must satisfy application needs along multiple dimensions such as timeliness, reliable delivery schemes, cryptographic security and data quality, and refers to this model as Q-RAM (QoS-based Resource Allocation Model). Expand
