Abstract:
The object of interest in this research is the evaluation of the combined routing and flow control scheme proposed by Muralidhar and Sundareshan. A slightly modified design using results from positive system theory is proposed as an attempt to improve the performance. Then a detailed performance evaluation of Muralidhar and Sundareshan's scheme and its modified version proposed here is conducted using discrete-event simulation. The application of positive system theory to the combined routing and flow control algorithm proposed by Muralidhar and Sundareshan proved to be quite effective in improving the overall performance only in the initial transient period. The fact that the improvement is restricted to a particular time period appears to be attributable to poor buffer management and certain other fundamental problems with Muralidhar and Sundareshan's scheme. These problems are identified and are described in detail.
