Fair resource allocation for different scenarios of demands
AbstractThis paper considers a resource allocation problem, which objective is to treat fairly all the system users. Usually the requests cannot be entirely predicted, but the manager can forecast the request evolution, this leading to a set of possible scenarios. Such a problem arises for instance in network bandwidth allocation as well as in storage space management. It also appears in the management of computer systems, such as computational grids or in cloud computing, when teams share a common pool of machines. Problems of fair resource sharing arise among users with equal access right but with different needs.
