3 Introduction A large number of studies on multihop wireless networks have been devoted to system stability while maximizing metrics like throughput or utility. The delay performance of wireless networks, however, has largely been an open problem. ◦ the mutual interference inherent in wireless networks. This paper presented a new, systematic methodology to obtain a fundamental lower bound on the average packet delay under any scheduling policy. 3

4 Introduction (cont’d) The delay performance of any scheduling policy is primarily limited by the interference. Many bottlenecks to be formed in the network ◦ The transmission medium is shared ◦ A bottleneck contains multiple links 4

5 Introduction (cont’d) In this paper, the authors development of a new queue grouping technique to handle the complex correlations of the service process resulting from the multihop nature of the flows ◦ (K,X)-bottlenecks  Queueing model 5

6 System model The service structure is slotted. Each packet has a deterministic service time equal to one unit. A(t)=(A 1 (t),…,A N (t)) : the vector of exogenous arrivals ◦ A i (t) : the number of packets injected into the system by the source s i during time slot t. =( 1,…, N ) : the corresponding arrival rate vector. P i =(v i 0, v i 1,…, v i |Pi| ) : the path on which flow i is routed ◦ v i j is a node at a j-hop distance from the source node 6

7 System model (cont’d) The queue length vector is denoted by Q(t) = (Q i j (t): i=1,2,…N) At each time slot, an activation vector I(t) is scheduled depending on the scheduling policy and the underlying interference model. ◦ I i j (t) indicates whether or not flow i received service at the j-th hop from source s i at time slot t. 7

8 (K,X)-bottleneck We partition the flows into several groups. ◦ Each group passes through a (K,X)-bottleneck, and the queueing for each group is analyzed individually. (K,X)-bottleneck : a set of links X such that no more than K of its links can be scheduled simultaneously (K,X)-bottleneck  G/D/K queue 8

9 Characterizing Bottlenecks in the System 1 {i  X} : indicate whether the flow passes through the (K,X)-bottleneck. The total flow rate  X crossing the bottleneck X is given by Let the flow I enter the (K,X)-bottleneck at the node v i ki and leave it at the node v i li. 9 number of hops in bottleneck

10 Deriving lower bounds on average delay S X (t) The sum of queues upstream of each link in X at time t is given by S X (t) 10 bottleneck packet S i 1 =1 S i 2 =1 S i 3 =1 S i 4 =2 S i 5 =2 S i 6 =2 S X =6 S i 4 =1 S i 5 =2 S i 6 =2 S X =5

11 Reduced System Let be the queue length of this system at time t. The queue evolution of the reduced system is given by the following equation: 11

12 Bound on Expected Delay 12 delay from v i li to v i |Pi| delay from v i 1 to v i li where

13 Flow Partition How to compute the lower bound on the average delay for a system containing multiple bottlenecks ? 13

14 Flow Partition (cont’d) Assume that we have precomputed a list of bottlenecks in the system Let Z be the set of flows in the system. Let π be a partition on Z such that each element p  π is a set of flows passing through a common (K p, X p )-bottleneck. Our objective is to compute a partition π such that the lower bound on can be maximized. 14

15 Flow Partition (cont’d) Greedily search for a set of flows p  P and the corresponding (K p,X p )-bottleneck that yields the maximum lower bound 15

16 Design of delay-efficient policies Such a scheduler must satisfy the following properties: ◦ Ensure high throughput ◦ Allocate resources equitably  Starvation leads to an increase in the average delay in the system. 16 K

17 The clique network A clique network is one in which the interference constraints allow only one link to be scheduled at any given time. ◦ ( 1,X)-bottleneck ◦ Any work-conserving policy will achieve the lower bound on S X. ◦ Note that a policy that minimizes S X may not minimize the sum of queue lengths in the system at all times, nor is it guaranteed to be delay-optimal. 17

18 The clique network (cont’d) The optimal policy ◦ Last Buffer First Serve (LBFS)  Scheduling the packet that is closest to its destination is optimal hop to dest. 2-hop to dest. 3-hop to dest. Delay time: 1, 3, 6 Delay time: 3, 5, 6

19 Back-Pressure Policy A throughput-optimal scheduling policy. Define the differential backlog of flow i passing through a link as For each link, the flow with the maximum differential backlog is chosen. The link-scheduling component schedules the activation vector with the maximum weight at every time slot. 19

20 Back-Pressure Policy (cont’d) 20

21 Illustrative examples Tandem Queue 21 The differential backlog at the last hop becomes comparatively large for small values of , thereby increasing the relative priority of the last link.

27 Conclusion This paper develop a new approach to reduce the bottlenecks in a multihop wireless to single- queue systems to carry out lower bound analysis. The analysis is very general and admits a large class of arrival processes. The analysis can be readily extended to handle channel variations. 27

28 Comments How to identify the bottlenecks in a wireless mesh network ? The analysis model can only obtain the lower bound of “expected delay time” How good is the lower bound ? ◦ especially when K is large. 28
