Abstract : We have developed reconfiguration algorithms that are robust, impose little overhead, and are gracefully degradable and potent enough to extract large performance gains. In addition, we have developed techniques to collect system status information and designed rational approximate techniques to project algorithm performance. We have studied the performance of our reconfiguration algorithm in ring-based and optical networks. Our results promise substantial improvements in distributed real-time system performance without imposing a high overhead.
