Adaptive Resource Management Made Real

Karl-Erik Årzén, Vanessa Romero Segovia, Stefan Schorr, Gerhard Fohler


The adaptive resource management framework implemented in the European ACTORS project is presented. A resource manager has been developed that collaborates with a new Linux scheduler providing support for hard constant bandwidth server reservations, in order to adapt applications to changes in resource availability and to adapt the resource allocation to changes in application requirements. The focus of this paper is the three demonstrators developed based on the framework. The demonstrators presented are an adaptive video quality demonstrator, a feedback control demonstrator, and a video decoding demonstrator. All of these execute under the control of the resource manager.
