Internet Protocols Each layer is abstracted as an optimization problem Operation of a layer is a distributed solution Results of one problem (layer) are parameters of others Operate at different timescales TCP/AQM IP Link Application IPLink

IP TCP/ AQM Applications Link Chiang: X-ities?? Utility maximization Chiang: Wireless issues ?? Outline General Approach: 1) Understand a single layer in isolation and assume other layers are designed nearly optimally. 2) Understand interactions across layers 3) Incorporate additional layers, with the ultimate goal of viewing entire protocol stack as solving one giant optimization problem (where individual layers are solving parts of it).

IP TCP/ AQM Applications Link Outline Utility maximization Some implications

21
Implications Is fair allocation always inefficient ? Does raising capacity always increase throughput ? Intricate and surprising interactions in large-scale networks … unlike at single link

22
Implications Is fair allocation always inefficient Does raising capacity always increase throughput

23
Fairness Identify allocation with An allocation is fairer if its is larger (Mo, Walrand 00)

24
Fairness maximum throughput proportional fairness min delay fairness (Reno) infinity maxmin fairness (Mo, Walrand 00)

25
Efficiency Unique optimal rate x () An allocation is efficient if T () is large

26
Conjecture T () is nonincreasing i.e. a fair allocation is always inefficient

27
Example 1 Conjecture T () is nonincreasing i.e. a fair allocation is always inefficient 0 max throughput 1 1/(L+1) proportional fairness L/L(L+1) 1/2 maxmin fairness 1/2

28
Intuition “The fundamental conflict between achieving flow fairness and maximizing overall system throughput….. The basic issue is thus the trade-off between these two conflicting criteria.” Luo,etc.(2003), ACM MONET

29
Results Theorem: Necessary & sufficient condition for general networks (R, c) provided every link has a 1-link flow Corollary 1: true if N(R)=1

30
Counter-example There exists a network such that dT/d > 0 for almost all >0 Intuition Large favors expensive flows Long flows may not be expensive Max-min may be more efficient than proportional fairness expensive long

31
Counter-example Theorem: Given any 0 >0, there exists network where Compact example

32
Implications Is fair allocation always inefficient ? Does raising capacity always increase throughput ? Intricate and surprising interactions in large-scale networks … unlike at single link

33
Throughput & capacity Intuition: Increasing link capacities always raises throughput T Theorem: Necessary & sufficient condition for general networks (R, c) Corollary: For all , increasing a link’s capacity can reduce T all links’ capacities equally can reduce T all links’ capacities proportionally raises T

34
