Scalable Resource Control in Active Networks

Anagnostakis, Kostas G.; Hicks, Michael W.; Ioannidis, Sotiris; Keromytis, Angelos D.; Smith, Jonathan M.

The increased complexity of the service model relative to store-and-forward routers has made resource management one of the paramount concerns in active networking research and engineering. In this paper,we address two major challenges in scaling resource management-to-many-node active networks. The first is the use of market mechanisms and trading amongst nodes and programs with varying degrees of competition and cooperation to provide a scalable approach to managing active network resources. The second is the use of a trust-management architecture to ensure that the participants in the resource management marketplace have a policy-driven "rule of law" in which marketplace decisions can be made and relied upon. We have used lottery scheduling and the Keynote trust-management system for our implementation, for which we provide some initial performance indications.
