Paper Abstract

We present an adaptive distributed multimedia server architecture (ADMS) that builds upon the idea of offensive adaptivity, where the server proactively controls its layout through replication or migration of server components to recommended hosts. Proactive actions are taken when network or server resources become critical when fulfilling client demands. Recommendations are provided by a so-called "host recommender" which represents an integral part of Vagabond2 -- the middleware used for component distribution. Recommendations are based on measured or estimated server and network resource availabilities. Network distance and host resource metrics -- obtained from network and host resource services respectively -- may be communicated as MPEG-21 DIA descriptors. Finally we evaluate our architecture in a real-world streaming scenario.
