Adaptive QoS Control Based on Benefit Optimization for Video Servers Providing Differentiated Services

Free registration required

Executive Summary

This paper proposes and analyzes Quality of Service (QoS) control algorithms for video servers designed to provide differentiated video streaming services. The design concepts are based on resource reservation and benefit optimization so that resources are reserved dynamically and adaptively for different QoS levels in response to the changing workload of the system, with the objective of maximizing the benefit throughput obtainable by the system. The authors analyze the benefit throughput obtainable by the system for a baseline algorithm for which the QoS levels of admitted users are not changed during the service lifetime and a greedy algorithm that may raise QoS levels of admitted users due to resources being free from departure events.
