The Theory Problem Consider the following distributed view of shortest path routing on an n node network: u v e1 e2 e3 V e2 T(u)

The Theory Problem Consider the following distributed view of shortest path routing on an n node network: u e1 e2 e3 V e2 v t T(u) T(t)

The Theory Problem Consider the following distributed view of shortest path routing on an n node network: u e1 e2 e3 V e2 v t T(u) T(t) Space: O(n log n) bit tables

The Compact Routing Problem Can we “compact” the local routing tables if we allow short rather than shortest paths? u v e1 e2 e3 V e2 h T(u) F(h,v,T(u))=e

Compact Routing Scheme The stretch of a path p(u,v) from u to v is | p(u,v)|/d(u,v) where d(u,v) is the length of the shortest path from u to v. The stretch of a routing scheme is the maximum stretch of any path. Want: small stretch and small table size.

Reality This graph algorithms problem has little to do with this:

Reality Each router advertises some of its known routes to (some of the) destinations in the network it knows about, to its neighbors. Routers prefer short routes; if a router thinks a route is undesirable, it will fail to pass it on, or depreciate it by artificially inflating its length. Complicated by peering relationships Tables and routes can be arbitrarily long; no stretch bounds

Back to Compact Routing Theory Early work: Santoro-Khatib (85) [rings, trees], van Leeuwen-Tan (86) [complete networks, grids], Fredrickson-Janardan (88) [outerplanar graphs, small separators] Compact Routing on Trees Universal compact routing schemes

Compact Routing on Trees Fraignaud/Gavoille [01] and Thorup/Zwick [01]: Stretch 1 Space O(log n) !!!! Header size O(log n) 2

Compact Routing on Trees Single source shortest path routing: For each node, identify Its heavy child; the one with most descendents

Compact Routing on Trees Single source shortest path routing: For each node, identify Its heavy child; the one with most descendents Packet header is the names of all the light edges from root to destination along with their parent names

Compact Routing on Trees Single source shortest path routing: Packet header is the names of all the light edges from root to destination along with their parent names Can only be O(log n) light edges on any path!!!

Compact Routing on Trees This works to route down; need to know when to route up: Add interval labeling to know when to go toward the root

Universal Compact Routing Schemes Work on any graph: -- ABLP-90, AP-92 early schemes -- EGP-98, stretch 5 -- C-00, stretch 3 -- TZ-01, stretch 3 (improved table size) Gavoille and Gengler proved a lower bound of 3 on the stretch on any routing scheme with sublinear-sized routing tables.

Universal Compact Routing Schemes Define a node’s local neighborhood to be its closest sqrt n nodes. From set cover: choose a set of sqrt n log n landmarks to hit every local neighborhood.

Universal Compact Routing Schemes Within a local neighborhood, store exact shortest path routing information Outside store routing information to all landmarks; route through a destination’s closest landmark, and then use tree- routing from landmark to destination.

Universal Compact Routing Schemes Stretch bound follows from the triangle inequality: Suppose d(u,v) >= d(L(v),v) Then d(u,L(v)) + d(L(v),v) <= d(u,v) + d(v,L(v)) + d(L(v),v) <= 3d(u,v) u v L(v)

Universal Compact Routing Schemes The construction sketched above achieves stretch 3 with tables of average size O(sqrt n log^2 n) to store local information for each node’s closest sqrt n nodes, and routing information for every landmark. u v L(v)

Universal Compact Routing Schemes Remark: needs undirected Graphs for triangle ineq bound Roundtrip routing (C-Wagner-04 ) measure d(u,v)+d(v,u) u v L(v)

The Internet Graph The Internet graph is not an arbitrary graph; it is believed to have a power-law topology. Faloutsos^3 -99 (but see also CCGJSW-02)

The Internet Graph

Performance of universal schemes on both synthetic models of power-law topologies and “real” maps of the inter-AS graph is much better on average than worst-case guarantees!

So: shouldn’t we be designing schemes for Internet graphs? Brady-C 06: Compact Routing with Additive Stretch on power-law graphs. Breaks graph into a dense core, of diameter d; the rest of the graph is called the fringe.

BC Scheme Let e be the number of edges that need to be removed from the fringe to make it into a forest. Theorem. For any unweighted, undirected network, there is a routing scheme that uses O(e log^2 n)-bit headers and routing tables, and has additive stretch d.

BC Scheme Constructed using a shortest path tree to route in the core, and e spanning trees in the fringe, and a distance labeling to choose between them. Estimates on the Inter-AS graph would give a worst-case additive stretch of 10 (and average stretch much smaller).

Internet Graph Simulations: Our Results Definition. A power-law graph G=(V,E) is an unweighted, undirected graph whose degree distribution approximates a power- law, i.e it has c vertices of degree 1 c/x vertices of degree x 

Name-independent simulations

But is it practical yet? No. Still have to deal with updating routing tables in response to changing network topology. Brady-Cowen protocol has some attractive features that make this easier than for the universal schemes (work in progress)

Back to theory A distance labeling is an assignment of short (polylog n)-bit strings to vertices so that given the labels of two vertices their exact (or approximate) distance can be inferred. Exact distance labeling schemes are known for graphs with small separators or separators with small diameter.

Theory Not possible for planar graphs (Gavoille, Peleg, x) Theorem (Brady-C 06) Exact distance labeling yield additive stretch compact routing schemes. Other connections between spanners, distance labelings, compact routing??

Theory: open problems Stretch 1 or additive stretch compact routing schemes for planar graphs: do they exist? More classes of exact additive spanners More special classes of graphs that have exact distance labeling schemes
