Abstract

In this paper we analyze the performance
characteristics of various alternatives for the admission
control module of a Bandwidth Broker. In particular, we
study the metrics such as acceptance rate, fairness towards
requests and computation overhead and how they are
affected when comparing a simple admission control module
and an adaptive one. Furthermore, we examine the benefits
that can arise under various circumstances through usage of
adaptive price-based admission control and enhancements
such as the ability to handle the resubmission of previously
rejected requests. We describe the results of our
experimentation using a simulated environment and the
operating circumstances that benefit each solution.
