Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Query response times are critical for cluster computing applications in data centers. In this letter, we argue that to optimize the network performance, we should consider the latency of the flows suffered loss, which are called tardy flows. We propose two tardy flow scheduling algorithms and show that our work offers significant performance gains through performance analysis and simulations.
