Towards Multi-Service Traffic Shaping in Two-Tier Enterprise Data Centers

Abstract : In Enterprise Data Centers (EDC), service providers are usually governed by Client Service Contracts (CSC) that specify, among other requirements, the rate at which a service should be accessed. The contract limits the rate to no more than a number of service requests during a given observation period. In two-tier setups, a cluster of Service-Oriented Networking (SON) Appliances form a pre-processing tier that accesses services in the service tier. SON Appliances locally shape the flow of requests to enforce the global rate defined in the CSC. Off-the-shelf SON Appliances present architectural limitations that prevent them from being used to efficiently perform traffic shaping in the presence of multiple service hosts. In this paper, besides identifying these limitations, we provide two contributions in this field. First, we introduce a SON Appliance architecture fit for multi-service traffic shaping. Second, we propose and validate an algorithm for multipoint-to-multipoint service traffic shaping in two-tier EDCs. We show via simulation that our approach solves the multipoint-to-multipoint service traffic shaping problem while pushing the system to its maximum capacity.
