    Accounting of service usage is one of the main tasks of service providers in their operation and management processes, providing the necessary information for the subsequent charging process. Because of the increasing number and diversity of services in IP-based networks, accounting has to provide flexible and extensible means supporting different service specific accounting attributes in order to...

    We present a framework enabling charging for composed services comprised of services offered by multiple providers. In the framework rating engines may generate charge information for individual services and provide this information upon request to other rating engines when these services are used as part of a composed service. Rating engines additionally employ a two-phase rating process which al... View full abstract»

  • A Framework for Quality of Service Control Through Pricing Mechanisms

    Most research in network pricing focuses on improving QoS for a single network. These approaches are not easily extensible to a set of interconnected networks, as the inter-ISP negotiations would be unwieldy. Our approach is to provide a general QoS-aware networking service. We first introduce the concept of QoS-transit services: transit services with QoS guarantees, where dynamic pricing is used ... View full abstract»

    In this paper we address the problem of ensuring business-IT alignment. We describe a method and a system for decision support in IT service management driven by alignment with the business objectives of the enterprise that the IT supports. Our technical proposition, called IT management by business objectives (MBO) is applicable to most of the domains of IT service management, such as incident ma... View full abstract»

    The trends for pushing more operational intelligence towards network elements to achieve more context-aware and self-managing behavior often requires elements to gather network knowledge without necessarily binding explicitly to all of the potential sources of that knowledge. Though event-based publish-subscribe models allow efficient distribution of knowledge where the event types are known globa... View full abstract»

    The current practice of physical science research has yielded a continuously growing demand for interconnection network bandwidth to support the sharing of large datasets. Academic research networks and Internet service providers have provisioned their networks to handle this type of load, which generates prolonged, high-volume traffic between nodes on the network. Maintenance of QoS for all netwo... View full abstract»

    This paper presents a new method, BART (bandwidth available in real-time), for estimating the end-to-end available bandwidth over a network path. It estimates bandwidth quasi-continuously, in real-time. The method has also been implemented as a tool. It relies on self-induced congestion, and repeatedly samples the available bandwidth of the network path with sequences of probe packet pairs, sent a... View full abstract»

    End-to-end fault and performance problems detection in wide area production networks is becoming increasingly hard as the complexity of the paths, the diversity of the performance, and dependency on the network increase. Several monitoring infrastructures are built to monitor different network metrics and collect monitoring information from thousands of hosts around the globe. Typically there are ...

    A key factor for the success of hotspot deployment is played by the capability of supporting real-time multimedia applications. The IEEE 802.11e standard for providing QoS in 802.11 WLANs (wireless LANs) has been recently completed. It allows differentiated QoS guarantees for different types of traffic, like video, voice and best effort. In this paper we first propose a method for guaranteeing QoS... View full abstract»

    How to effectively allocate system resources to meet service level objectives (SLOs) is a challenging problem for Web services providers. In this paper, we propose a scheme for autonomous performance control of Web applications. It uses a queueing model predictor and an online adaptive feedback loop that enforces admission control of the incoming requests to ensure the desired response time target... View full abstract»

    It is challenging to reduce resource over-provisioning for enterprise applications while maintaining service level objectives (SLOs) due to their time-varying and stochastic workloads. In this paper, we study the effect of prediction on dynamic resource allocation to virtualized servers running enterprise applications. We present predictive controllers using three different prediction algorithms b... View full abstract»

    Resource pools are computing environments that offer virtualized access to shared resources. When used effectively they can align the use of capacity with business needs (flexibility), lower infrastructure costs (via resource sharing), and lower operating costs (via automation). Using resources effectively can rely on a combination of workload placement and workload management technologies. Worklo... View full abstract»

    In this paper, we present a theoretical framework and a distributed mechanism for fair bandwidth allocation on a network with various bottleneck links. In our model, a user is guaranteed a minimum bandwidth and charged a price for a bandwidth capacity request. We defined a utility function that reflects user's bandwidth demand when the user requests the bandwidth capacity. We then present a non-co... View full abstract»
