2009 Poster Sessions : Target-Based Power Control for Queueing Systems with Applications to Packet Switches

Student Name : Dimitrios Tsamis
Advisor : Nicholas Bambos
Research Areas: Information Systems
Many data center devices, for instance packet switches, can be modeled within the context of resource constrained queueing systems. In this work, we define a novel algorithm class which simultaneously addresses three significant concerns in the operation of such systems: stability, differentiated QOS, and power control. This class, which we refer to as target/power projective cone scheduling (TP-PCS), encapsulates many previously studied algorithms as special cases. At the same time, however, it is broad enough to include a rich set of other, potentially superior control procedures.

This is joint work with Benjamin Yolken and Prof Nick Bambos

Dimitrios Tsamis is a 3rd year PhD student working with Nick Bambos in the Information Systems Lab at Stanford University. He received his Diploma in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the National Technical University of Athens, Greece in 2006. Since then he has been working on power control for data-center devices, bandwidth estimation and rate control for mobile devices and buffer sizing for switches.
