© 2007 IBM Corporation Overlay Topologies for Pub/Sub “Good” overlay will allow for efficient and simple publication routing “Good” overlay will allow for efficient and simple publication routing –Small routing tables, low load on relays, –low latency Ideally, overlay is topic-connected: i.e., one connected component for each topic- induced sub-graph Ideally, overlay is topic-connected: i.e., one connected component for each topic- induced sub-graph –Most existing implementations construct topic- connected overlays

© 2007 IBM Corporation Scalability of the Simple Solution Negative impact on performance due to Negative impact on performance due to –CPU load: neighbor monitoring, message processing –Connection maintenance and header overhead –Memory overhead: per-link state associated with routing and/or compression schemes being used, etc. Scalability barrier for large systems offering a wide range of subscription choices Can we do better?

© 2007 IBM Corporation The Min-TCO Problem Minimum Topic-Connected Overlay (Min- TCO) problem: Minimum Topic-Connected Overlay (Min- TCO) problem: –For a set of nodes V, set of topics T, and I nterest: V T {true, false} –Construct a topic-connected overlay G with the minimum possible number of edges (or average degree) TCO (decision version): TCO (decision version): –Decide whether there is a topic-connected overlay consisting of k edges (for a given k )

10
© 2007 IBM Corporation Complexity of TCO Lemma: TCO(V,T,Interest,k) NP Proof: Topic connectivity is verifyable in polynomial time Lemma: TCO(V,T,Interest,k) is NP-hard Proof : 1.Define an auxiliary problem Single Node TCO (SN-TCO) which is to decide if there is a topic-connected overlay in which the degree of single given node d 2.Set Cover is polynomially reducible to SN-TCO 3.SN-TCO is polynomially reducible to TCO Theorem : TCO is NP-complete N5 {B,C,D} N2 {A,B} N3 {A,D} {A,C} {A,B,C,D} N4 N1

© 2007 IBM Corporation GM Running Time O(|V| 4 |T|) O(|V| 4 |T|) –At most |V| 2 iterations –At most |V| 2 edges inspected at each iteration –At most |T| steps to inspect an edge Can be optimized to run in O(|V| 2 |T|) Can be optimized to run in O(|V| 2 |T|) –For each e V V, weight(e) = the number of connected components merged by e –At each iteration, output the heaviest edge and adjust the other edge weights accordingly –Stop once there are no more edges with weight > 0

19
© 2007 IBM Corporation Approximability Results Lemma: 1.The number of edges in the overlay constructed by GM log(|V| |T|) OPT Proof: Similar to that of the approximation ratio of the greedy algorithm for Set Cover 2.There exists an input on which GM’s output meets this ratio Theorem: No algorithm can approximate Min-TCO within a constant factor (unless P=NP) Proof: Existence of such an algorithm would imply existence of the constant factor approximation for Set Cover which is known to be impossible (unless P=NP)
