An Online Learning Multi-path Selection Framework for Multi-path Transmission Protocols


In the last decade, we have witnessed a tremendous growth of inter-connectivity among hosts in networks. Many new data transmission protocols have been developed to enable multi-path data transmissions between two hosts. However, the existing multi-path transmission protocol designs are limited as they neglect the stochastic nature of the metrics of the paths, e.g., latency, available bandwidth, and packet loss. Moreover, there are different design requirements in the applications, such as low latency, bandwidth throttling, and low loss rate in data delivery. In this talk, we propose a flexible online learning multi-path selection (OLMPS) framework to select multiple paths by learning the stochastic metrics of the paths and meeting the design requirements of the applications. Specifically, we design a set of novel online learning algorithms in the OLMPS framework for three different applications -- maxRTT constrained, bandwidth constrained, and loss rate constrained, multi-path selection, to select paths and satisfy the requirements. We prove that the algorithms can provide theoretical guarantees on both sublinear regret and sublinear violation in our OLMPS framework.

过去十年间,接入威尼斯人官网网络的主机数量呈现出爆炸式增长。多种用于主机间数据传输的多路径协议被相继提出。然而,当前的数据传输多路径协议由于忽略了网络传输延迟、可用带宽和数据丢包等随机特性而使它们在应用上收到了极大的限制。另外,许多应用对网络传输延迟、链路带宽和丢包率等有一定要求。本报告将先容一种基于网络特性在线学习的多路径选取框架,用于满足不同应用对数据传输的需求。具体地,将先容一类用于分别满足最大传输延迟、网络带宽和丢包率约束的在线学习多路径选取算法,并在理论上确保算法具有次线性的regret violation两个关键性能指标。
