Multi-Resource Load Balancing for Virtual Network Functions متعادل کردن بار (ترافیکی) چند منبعی برای توابع شبکه مجازی Abstract—Middleboxes are widely deployed to perform various network functions to ensure security and improve performance. The recent trend of Network Function Virtualization (NFV) makes it easy for operators to deploy software implementations of these network functions on commodity servers. However, virtual network functions consume different amounts of resources when processing packets. Thus a multi-resource load balancing (MRLB) mechanism is needed to efficiently utilize server resources. MRLB problem in the context of NFV is fundamentally different from multi-resource allocation problems, as well as traditional single-resource load balancing and multi-resource load balancing problems in task scheduling. In this paper, we tackle the MRLB problem in NFV by first proposing dominant load—the load of the most stressed resource on a server— …
