Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


The theoretical and practical aspects of a task control model implemented in the middleware layer of the Internet, is presented. The model applies control theoretical approaches to utilize measurement-based samples monitored in the network traffic, as well as resource and quality of service demand dynamics observed in the end systems. Adaptation tasks for controlling the adaptive behavior of applications, observation tasks for measurement of traffic and end system resources are introduced to the model. Based on the model, the stability adaptive algorithms are analyzed, specific translation mechanisms within the applications are presented and service platforms in the middle level are explored.
