Utilization-based admission control for real-time applications Conference Paper uri icon


  • © 2000 IEEE. In this paper, we present a methodology to use utilization-based admission control in guaranteed real-time communication in a scalable fashion. We make admission control scalable by using a configuration-time test to determine a safe utilization level of servers. Admission control at run-time then is reduced to simple utilization tests on the servers along the path of the new flow. Furthermore, we discuss how appropriate route selection improve utilization levels, design a safe route selection heuristic algorithm to achieve high utilization of resources, and derive two bounds on the maximum utilization level for given traffic in a network. We compare the results of our route selection heuristics with that of a shortest-path based algorithm, and find that our heuristics can achieve a much higher maximum utilization level than that of the shortest-path based algorithm.
