End-host based mechanisms for implementing flow scheduling in GridNetworks

Abstract : In Grids, transfer jobs and network resources need to be managed in a moredeterministic way than in the Internet. New approaches like flow schedulingare proposed and studied as alternatives to traditional QoS and reservationproposals. To enable such flow scheduling approaches, run-time mechanismscontrolling flow sending time and rate have to be implemented in the dataplane. This paper quantify and compares in a range of latency conditions,such end-host based mechanisms combined with transport protocols to instantiatedifferent scheduling strategies. We show that, in high speed network, asingle-rate scheduling strategy implemented by an AIMD-based protocol withpacket pacing mechanism offers predictable performance and is insensitive tolatency. This paper also highlights the limits of other strategies and rate limitationmechanisms like token bucket which may present unpredictability andother drawbacks.
