Maximizing the profit of datacenter networks (DCNs) demands to satisfy more flows' requirements simultaneously, but existing schemes always allocate resource based on single flow attribute, which cannot carry out accurate resource allocation and make many flows failed. In this letter, we propose Highest Priority Flow First (HPFF) to maximize DCN profit, which allocates resource for flows according to the priority. HPFF employs a utility function that considers multiple flow attributes,

The experiments on the testbed show that HPFF can improve the network profit by 6.75%-19.7% and decrease the number of failed flow by 26.3%-83.3% compared with existing schemes under real DCN workloads. key words: datacenter network, network profit, multiple attributes
