Abstract:

An increasing number of applications e.g., collaborative planning, video conferencing, telemedicine, and distributed command and control have quality-of-service QoS requirements including data precision, accuracy, timeliness, security and availability. These QoS requirements are generally end-to-end requirements because the users of the applications are interested in the end results. This report describes the architecture developed for the Global Resource Management GRM project, to enable adaptive, end-to-end, scalable resource management of distributed systems. The architecture includes a QoS taxonomy models to capture the application, resource, and system design space algorithms to navigate this system design space and algorithms to evaluate points within this design space so as to determine the impact on application QoS and system metrics. The architecture can be realized in many system domains, including command and control, multimedia, and medical domains, to provide domain-specific application QoS support.
