Host resources (e.g., CPU time and buffer space) in mobile ad hoc networks must be shared between the devices own applications and networking functions, such as routing and packet forwarding on behalf of remote nodes. Previous work has ignored the performance conflicts that arise due to the need to share host resources. In this paper, using both analytical and statistical-based empirical analysis, the authors investigate the conflicting roles that the host must serve and provide the first detailed study on the impact that host capacity has on the performance of ad hoc networks.
