The functional efficiency of cloud solutions depends on their responsive allocation of processing resources to individual tasks according to their predefined completion time. An optimum usage of resources requires an accurate prediction of resource consumption. In this paper we introduce a novel method for predicting the resource consumption of processing requests in multiple consumption classes in a system consisting of a plentitude of processing units. We further enhance the prediction algorithm with different mechanisms to determine the request resource consumption of a variety of request classes in order to increase the precision of the prediction. We also show that the prediction algorithm is robust against abrupt and large variations of consumption and recovers itself rapidly.Index Terms: Resource consumption prediction, resource allocation, Machine Learning, adaptive algorithms, network softwarization, cloud computing, distributed systems.

  • Segall I.

Network Function Virtualization (NFV) is a new networking paradigm in which network functionality is implemented on top of virtual infrastructure deployed over COTS servers. One of the main motivations for the shift of telco operators into this paradigm is cost reduction, thus the efficient use of resources is an important ...

Network Function Virtualization (NFV) is a novel paradigm allowing flexible and scalable implementation of network services on cloud infrastructure. An important enabler for the NFV paradigm is software switching, which needs to satisfy rigid network requirements such as high throughput and low latency. Despite recent research activities in the field ...

Coexistence-aware dynamic channel allocation for 3.5 GHz shared spectrum systems

The paradigm of shared spectrum allows secondary devices to opportunistically access spectrum bands underutilized by primary owners. As the first step, the FCC targeted sharing the 3.5 GHz (3550–3700 MHz) federal spectrum with commercial systems. The proposed rules require a Spectrum Access System to implement a three-tiered spectrum management framework, ...
