Abstract

We consider connection-level models of resource allocation in the Internet, where files arrive into the network according to a Poisson process and the size of each file is exponentially distributed. The link capacities in the network are assumed to be shared among the files in the network using a proportionally-fair resource allocation scheme. In this paper, we are interested in the impact of this resource allocation on the filetransfer delay experienced by the users of the network. Towards this end, we derive a simple upper bound on the expected number of files in the network using Lyapunov techniques.
