According to mobility and high speed of nodes in Vehicular Delay Tolerant Networks (VDTNs), end to end path is not available all the time and intermittent connection has occurred. So, messages are sent with a considerable delay and most of them will be dropped. Therefore, well-organized buffer management policy is necessary to improve the overall network performance. We present an efficient policy to model buffer management problem as a multi-criteria decision problem. Using Multi Criteria

Multi Criteria Decision Making (MCDM) method enables the buffer manager to apply several criteria with different degrees of importance for optimal buffer management in terms of requirements of different application scenarios in VDTNs. The efficiency and tradeoffs of the proposed policy is evaluated through extensive simulation.
