Multi-resource Allocation with Unknown Participants

Ajoy K. Datta, Lawrence L. Larmore, Stephane Devismes, Francois Kawala, Maria Potop-Butucaru
2011 2011 Second International Conference on Networking and Computing  
We define the problem of multi-resource allocation, which is an extension of the dining philosophers problem. We apply this problem to systems where participants (here called clients) are unknown.  ...  We propose a solution for 2-resource allocation in static networks, then, explain how to modify our protocol to handle client dynamicity.  ...  In Section III, we present a two-resource allocation algorithm for systems with unknown participants. In Section IV, we explain how to handle dynamicity of clients.  ...

Introducing a Distributed Cloud Architecture with Efficient Resource Discovery and Optimal Resource Allocation

Praveen Khethavath, Johnson Thomas, Eric Chan-Tin, Hong Liu
2013 2013 IEEE Ninth World Congress on Services  
Resource discovery and allocation is critical in designing an efficient and practical distributed cloud. We propose using multi-valued distributed hash tables for efficient resource discovery.  ...  Leveraging the fact that there are many users providing resources such as CPU and memory, we define these resources under one key to easily locate devices with equivalent resources.  ...  If enough nodes are found, start with resource allocation.  ...

Exposing market mechanism design trade-offs via multi-objective evolutionary search

Arjun Chandra, Richard Allmendinger, Peter R. Lewis, Xin Yao, Jim Torresen
2013 2013 IEEE Congress on Evolutionary Computation  
Market mechanisms are a means by which resources in contention can be allocated between contending parties, both in human economies and those populated by software agents.  ...  This application of NSGA-II exposes tradeoffs between objectives, revealing relationships between them that were otherwise unknown for this mechanism class.  ...  Moreover, in multi-agent systems research, specifically tailored towards resource allocation problems in decentralised systems, employing market mechanisms for such allocations is becoming commonplace  ...

Cloud Flat Rates Enabled via Fair Multi-resource Consumption [chapter]

Patrick Poullie, Burkhard Stiller
2016 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
This paper defines fair multi-resource cloud sharing and details its enforcement to enable attractive cloud sharing schemes that, particularly, enable cloud flat rates.  ...  By simulating the GM's application to adapt resource allocations of cloud hosts, it is shown how fairness between cloud customers can be achieved and thereby attractive cloud flat rates offered.  ...  In economics, fairness of multi-resource allocations is defined by envy-freeness [4] , i.e., no consumer prefers to swap his bundle with another.  ...

How to Improve Water Resources Allocation Efficiency: A Two-Stage Performance-Based Allocation Mechanism

Hui Zhang, Qiyu Ren, Jiaying Li
2019 Sustainability  
Besides, the total water resources invested into production or environment is two water users' private information, which is unknown to the governor.  ...  Hence, this paper constructs a two-stage performance-based allocation mechanism to motivate two competing water users (referred to as the agents) to act in accordance with the interests of the governor  ...  (v) All participants are risk-neutral in this paper, with risk-aversion or risk-preference to be studied in the future.  ...

It's the thought that counts over time: The interplay of intent, outcome, stewardship, and legacy motivations in intergenerational reciprocity

H. Min Bang, Christy Zhou Koval, Kimberly A. Wade-Benzoni
2017 Journal of Experimental Social Psychology  
Our research highlights the role of making the intention of past generations transparent in intergenerational resource allocations.  ...  We demonstrate that even in the presence of undesirable outcomes, people use previous generations' intentions to guide their own decisions for allocating resources to future generations.  ...  In Experiments 1A-B, we explored H1 using a lab study involving allocations of real money and natural resource. Experiment 2 replicates the findings in the context of natural resource allocation.  ...

A suggested solution for the problem of Capacity Resource Management (CRM) allocation is the Extended Max Min Fairness (EMMF) criterion, an extension of the well-known Max Min Fairness criterion.  ...  The participants' requirements for these resources are de ned and translated in terms of Quality of Service (QoS) requirements and the fairness criteria.  ...  This allocation should be feasible, fair and humanly reasonable. The multi-party video conferencing management system faces con ict in two main system resources, conference time and network capacity.  ...
