In this paper, the problem of allocating multiple finite resources to satisfy the quality of service (QoS) needs of multiple applications along multiple QoS dimensions is presented. A mathematical model that captures the dynamics of such adaptive problem is presented. This model formulates the problem as multiple-choice multidimensional 0-1 knapsack problem (MMKP), an NP-hard optimization problem. A heuristic algorithm is then proposed to solve the MMKP. Experimental results demonstrate that our proposed algorithm finds 96% optimal solutions on average, and outperforms other heuristic algorithms for MMKP. Furthermore, the time required is on average 50% to 70% less than that required by other benchmark heuristics. These two properties make this heuristic a strong candidate for use in real-time applications.
