Abstract

In this paper we present a QoS-based welfare economic resource management model, which models the actual price-formation process of an economy. This approach handles resource and QoS allocation optimally so that the total utility of the system is maximized through a tatonnement process, in which operating markets for each resource is done separately. We use the constructs of application benefit functions and resource demand functions to represent the system configuration and to solve the resource allocation problems. Empirical studies are conducted to evaluate the performance of our proposed pricing model and to compare it with other approaches such as priority (class)-based scheme and greedy method.
