Title (EN) METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR SCHEDULING RESOURCES ON A SWITCHED UNDERLAY NETWORK
(FR) PROCEDE ET APPAREIL POUR ORDONNANCER LES RESSOURCES DANS UN RESEAU SOUS-JACENT COMMUTE
Abstract:
(EN) A method and apparatus for resource scheduling on a switched underlay network (18) enables coordination, scheduling, and scheduling optimization to take place taking into account the availability of the data and the network resources comprising the switched underlay network (18). Requested transfers may be fulfilled by assessing the requested transfer parameters, the availability of the network resources required to fulfill the request, the availability of the data to be transferred, the availability of sufficient storage resources to receive the data, and other potentially conflicting requested transfers. In one embodiment, the requests are under-constrained to enable transfer scheduling optimization to occur. The under-constrained nature of the requests enable transfer scheduling optimization to occur. The under-constrained nature of the requests enables requests to be scheduled taking into account factors such as transfer priority, transfer duration, the amount of time it has been since the transfer request was submitted, and many other factors.
(FR) L'invention concerne un procédé et un appareil pour ordonnancer les ressources dans un réseau sous-jacent commuté (18); ces procédé et appareil permettent d'effectuer la coordination, l'ordonnancement et l'optimisation d'ordonnancement compte tenu de la disponibilité des données et des ressources réseau comprenant le réseau sous-jacent commuté (18). Les transferts requis peuvent être réalisés par l'estimation des paramètres de transfert requis, de la disponibilité des ressources réseau nécessaires pour réaliser la requête, la disponibilité des données à transférer, la disponibilité de ressources de stockage suffisantes pour recevoir les données et d'autres transferts requis éventuellement conflictuels. Dans un mode de réalisation, les requêtes sont soumises à des contraintes moindres pour permettre l'optimisation de l'ordonnancement du transfert. Cette nature des requêtes à contraintes moindres permet d'ordonnancer les requêtes en tenant compte de facteurs tels que la priorité de transfert, la durée de transfert, la duré de temps écoulé depuis la soumission du transfert et de nombreux autres facteurs.
