Abstract

Computer systems are operating in environments where applications are rapidly diversifying while resources like energy and storage are becoming severely limited. These environments demand that computers dynamically manage their resources efficiently to deliver the best performance and meet many goals. An important challenge in designing computer resource management systems is that computers are structured in multiple modular layers, such as hardware, operating system, and network. Each layer is complex and designed independently without full knowledge of the other layers. Therefore, computers must have modular resource controllers for each layer that are robust to modeling limitations and the uncertainty of influence from other layers. Existing designs either rely heavily on ad hoc heuristics or lack modularity. We present a design with multiple Structured Singular Value (SSV) controllers from robust control theory for systematic and efficient computer management. On a challenging computer, we build a two-layer SSV control system that significantly outperforms state-of-the-art heuristics.
