2 Sep doc.: e-The Effect of Failures on QoS Slide 2 Submission Paul Dixon, Hisilicon Outline Reliability Quality of Service Fault Tolerance

3 Sep doc.: e-The Effect of Failures on QoS Slide 3 Submission Paul Dixon, Hisilicon Motivation There appears to be much non-standard use of terms and a misunderstanding in some quarters of the relationship between Reliability and QoS This presents a brief overview of these issues to ensure a common understanding

4 Sep doc.: e-The Effect of Failures on QoS Slide 4 Submission Paul Dixon, Hisilicon Reliability reliability is the ability of a system to perform and maintain its functionality in under normal circumstances A system which does not do this may be said to have failed

5 Sep doc.: e-The Effect of Failures on QoS Slide 5 Submission Paul Dixon, Hisilicon Reliability Failures come in two main types, hard and soft A hard failure occurs when a fault develops in the systems and renders it incapable of performing its function A soft failure is a short term failure due some unpredictable circumstance but functionality is unimpaired in the long term

6 Sep doc.: e-The Effect of Failures on QoS Slide 6 Submission Paul Dixon, Hisilicon Quality of Service Quality of Service is about achieving goals There is a need to deliver a stream of data between two points The requirements of said stream need to be predictable Delivery of such data is a real time scheduling issue

7 Sep doc.: e-The Effect of Failures on QoS Slide 7 Submission Paul Dixon, Hisilicon Quality of Service This is not synonymous with reliability Reliable operation is required for file transfer and higher level protocols are very good in ensuring reliable delivery is achieved But in what time?

8 Sep doc.: e-The Effect of Failures on QoS Slide 8 Submission Paul Dixon, Hisilicon Fault Tolerance Fault tolerance is a totally different issue A different level of cost and complexity

9 Sep doc.: e-The Effect of Failures on QoS Slide 9 Submission Paul Dixon, Hisilicon Fault Tolerance While a fault tolerant system could probably be configured from components, systems are not fault tolerant in the normal use of the term An system has some resilience to faults and may in a reasonably short time reconfigure its routing to overcome a failure

10 Sep doc.: e-The Effect of Failures on QoS Slide 10 Submission Paul Dixon, Hisilicon Summary Reliability is important, without a certain level of reliability, a usable system cannot be configured QoS provides a mechanism to deliver information in a timely manner in the absence of other disturbances True Fault Tolerance provides performance which is identical whether or not faults exist Some level of resilience is providing allowing systems to continue after reconfiguration
