Global Order From a Minimal Local Resource Allocation Strategy

Global Order From a Minimal Local Resource Allocation Strategy
Global Order From a Minimal Local Resource Allocation Strategy
In this paper we explore the relationship between local and global behaviour in a simple model of utility computing infrastructure as the system heterogeneity, load and reliability are varied. To do this, we implement minimally complex agent strategies for which we can identify the fundamental generic feedback underlying system behaviour. Such feedback must be balanced by any utility computing infrastructure if decentralised control is to become an effective technique for preserving stable functionality.

Abstract

In this paper we explore the relationship between local and global behaviour in a simple model of utility computing infrastructure as the system heterogeneity, load and reliability are varied. To do this, we implement minimally complex agent strategies for which we can identify the fundamental generic feedback underlying system behaviour. Such feedback must be balanced by any utility computing infrastructure if decentralised control is to become an effective technique for preserving stable functionality.
