Latency has risen as one of major network performance metrics in data centres due to the emergence of latency-sensitive applications such as algorithmic trading services, real-time online bidding systems, social collaboration and recommendation systems. To effectively support these applications, network operators need to carry out two fundamental tasks---latency measurement and latency management. Thus we discuss issues pertaining to the two tasks in this talk.

This talk comprises two parts. The first part deals with the challenges involved in obtaining accurate latency measurements and our approaches to overcome them. In the second part, the focus is geared towards latency guarantees with a particular emphasis on latency equalisation problem. This is an ongoing work. Thus we mainly discuss the motivation, challenges and preliminary approaches.


Myungjin Lee is currently a Chancellor's Fellow in the School of Informatics at the University of Edinburgh. He received his Ph.D. degree from Purdue University in 2012, M.S. from KAIST in 2002, and B.E. from Kyungpook National University, Korea in 2000. His major research focuses on scalable measurement architectures and algorithms for data centre networks, scheduling resources in cloud networks, and networked application monitoring and characterisation.
