Agile dynamic provisioning of multi-tier Internet applications
Bhuvan Urgaonkar, Prashant Shenoy, Abhishek Chandra, Pawan Goyal, Timothy Wood
Article No.: 1
DOI: 10.1145/1342171.1342172

Dynamic capacity provisioning is a useful technique for handling the multi-time-scale variations seen in Internet workloads. In this article, we propose a novel dynamic provisioning technique for multi-tier Internet applications that employs (1) a...

An adaptative agent architecture for holonic multi-agent systems
Vincent Hilaire, Abder Koukam, Sebastian Rodriguez
Article No.: 2
DOI: 10.1145/1342171.1342173

Self-organized multi-agent systems (MAS) are still difficult to engineer, because, to deal with real world problems, a self-organized MAS should exhibit complex adaptive organizations. In this respect the holonic paradigm provides a solution for...

Ant-based distributed constrained steiner tree algorithm for jointly conserving energy and bounding delay in ad hoc multicast routing
Chien-Chung Shen, Ke Li, Chaiporn Jaikaeo, Vinay Sridhara
Article No.: 3
DOI: 10.1145/1342171.1342174

The minimum-energy multicast tree problem aims to construct a multicast tree rooted at the source node and spanning all the destination nodes such that the sum of transmission power at non-leaf nodes is minimized. However, aggressive power...

Admission of QoS aware users in a smart network
Erol Gelenbe, Georgia Sakellari, Maurizio D'arienzo
Article No.: 4
DOI: 10.1145/1342171.1342175

Smart networks have grown out of the need for stable, reliable, and predictable networks that will guarantee packet delivery under Quality of Service (QoS) constraints. In this article we present a measurement-based admission control algorithm...
