Dynamic Priority Packet Scheduler with Deadline Considerations (DPD)
Providing quality of service (QoS) to applications with different traffic characteristics based on their needs is an important research area for today's and tomorrow's high speed networks. Various techniques have been proposed to achieve good QoS for diverse application types. Among these techniques packet scheduling algorithms decide on how to process packets at network nodeshowever they have limited support for better QoS. In order to supply the various QoS requirements for different kinds of applications new scheduling policies need to be developed and evaluated. This paper proposes a new kind of packet scheduling algorithm Dynamic Priority with Deadline Considerations (DPD) which integrates an important QoS parameter (the delay) into the classical static priority packet scheduling algorithm and analyses the packet losses by considering the two different components of lossesbuffer overflows and deadline violations. The proposed algorithm not only reduces the complexity of the static priority algorithm by introducing degree sorting but also solves the starving problem and provides fairness to applications with different priorities.
