|Abstract||In this article, we develop a general methodology, mainly based upon Lyapunov functions, to derive bounds on average delays, and on averages and variances of queue lengths in complex systems of queues. We apply this methodology to cell-based switches and routers, considering first output-queued (OQ) architectures, in order to provide a simple example of our methodology, and then both input-queued (IQ), and combined input/output queued (CIOQ) architectures. These latter switching architectures require a scheduling algorithm to select at each slot a subset of input-buffered cells that can be transferred toward output ports. Although the stability properties (i.e., the limit throughput) of IQ and CIOQ cell-based switches were already studied for several classes of scheduling algorithms, very few analytical results concerning cell delays or queue lengths are available in the technical literature. We concentrate on Maximum Weight Matching (MWM) and Maximal Size Matching (mSM) scheduling algorithms; while the former was proved to maximize throughput, the latter allows simpler implementation. The derived bounds are shown to be rather tight when compared to simulation results.|

Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) under its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT) has initiated the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project to develop a framework of virtual repository of learning resources with a single-window search facility. Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find out the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDLI is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for leading vernacular languages, (currently Hindi, Bengali and several other languages are available). It is designed to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular forms of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is being developed to help students to prepare for entrance and competitive examinations, to enable people to learn and prepare from best practices from all over the world and to facilitate researchers to perform inter-linked exploration from multiple sources. It is being developed at Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDLI is a conglomeration of freely available or institutionally contributed or donated or publisher managed contents. Almost all these contents are hosted and accessed from respective sources. The responsibility for authenticity, relevance, completeness, accuracy, reliability and suitability of these contents rests with the respective organization and NDLI has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDLI portal up and running smoothly unless there are some unavoidable technical issues.
Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), has sponsored and funded the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project.
