Abstract
The page migration problem is one of subproblems of data management in networks. It occurs<br>in a distributed network of processors sharing one indivisible memory page of size D. During runtime,<br>the processors access a unit of data from the page, and the system is allowed to migrate the page <br>between the processors. The problem is to compute (on-line) a schedule of page movements <br>to minimize the total communication cost. <br><br>The Dynamic Page Migration problem is an extension to the page migration. <br>It attempts to model the network dynamics, occurring, for example, in mobile networks.<br>However, the pace of changes is restricted, i.e. the distances between processors can <br>change only by a constant per round. <br><br>The movement of the nodes induce changes in the communication cost between each pair of nodes, <br>which is proportional to the distance between them raised to some power $alpha$.<br>This is typical for mobile wireless networks, where nodes can move with a constant speed,<br>and the cost of communication is measured in terms of energy used for sending the data.<br>Thus, by setting $alpha$ equal to the propagation exponent of the medium, <br>cost minimization becomes minimizing the total energy consumption in the system. <br><br>However, as proven in citedynamic-page-migration, if both network mobility and <br>request sequence are created by an adversary, then the competitive ratio is polynomially large in D and <br>in the number of the nodes. In our search for a reasonable, close-to-reality model, in this paper we <br>consider a scenario in which the network mobility is adversarial, but the requests are <br>generated randomly by a stochastic process. We design an algorithm MTFR for this scenario,<br>and prove that it is O(1)-competitive, on expectation and with high probability.
