Abstract
THE DEVELOPMENT OF A GENERAL PURPOSE, UNIVERSAL INTERFACE SOFTWARE (UIS) WHICH ENABLES THE EFFICIENT, CONGESTION FREE TRANSFER OF DATA BASES BETWEEN CENTRAL COMPUTING FACILITIES FOR THE PURPOSE OF REAL TIME, OPTIMAL TRANSMISSION OF WORSE CASE THREAT DATA, IS DESCRIBED IN THIS PROPOSAL. THE MATHEMATICAL RESEARCH BASIS FOR THIS SOFTWARE WILLBE COMPRISED OF THE FOLLING THREE AREAS: (A) THE OPTIMIZATION OF THE PERCENTAGE OF NETWORK OR SUBNETWORK LINK LOAD LINKED TO A % OF CONGESTION WHICH MINIMIZES THE DELAY REGARDLESS OF THE NETWORK OR SUBNET-WORK SIZE, (B) THE OPTIMIZATION OF THE AVAILABILITY OF LINKS IN A CON-TENTION SOFTWARE WITH RESPECT TO THE SYSTEM LOAD FOR NETWORKS AND SUB-NETWORKS, (C) THE COMPUTATION STORAGE AND TIME OPTIMIZATION OF THE MATHEMATICAL COMPUTER SOFTWARE. THE UIS WILL BE FOCUSED ON A CONTINUATION OF THE MAP AND INTERFACE SOFTWARE THEORY DEVELOPED FOR THE DARPA INTERNETWORK BY NIZNIK IN DCA100-84-C-0038, TO TRANSFER DATA BASES BETWEEN IMP'S AND GATEWAYS. THE INTERFACE SOFTWARE CURRENTLY CONTAINS A CLOSED HASHING TABLE WHICH ENABLE ROUTING OF THE DELAY TABLES ONLY WHEN PATHS ARE AVAILABLE. THE INTERFACE COMPARISON CRITERIA IS WHETHER THE REAL TIME PATH IS LESS THAN THE OPTIMALLY DERIVED PATH DELAY FOR A SERIES OF M/M/1 QUEUEING SYSTEM NODES. THE THEORETICAL BASIS FOR DETERMINING THE POINT IN THE LOAD WHERE THIS ROUTING AVAILABILITY IS BELOW A CERTWAIN THRESHOLD WILL BE DERIVED HERE. THIS WILL PROVIDE FOR A MEANINGFUL CONNECTION BETWEEN ETHERNET LAN'S CONTENTION AND THE FINITE BUFFER CLASSES OR BLOCKS IN GATEWAYS AND FIRST LEVEL COMPUTER NODES TO EFFECTUATE CONGESTION CONTROL.
