Brief Announcement: On Self-Adjusting Skip List Networks

Abstract

This paper explores the design of dynamic network topologies which adjust to the workload they serve, in an online manner. Such self-adjusting networks (SANs) are enabled by emerging optical technologies, and can be found, e.g., in datacenters. SANs can be used to reduce routing costs by moving frequently communicating nodes topologically closer. This paper presents SANs which provide, for the first time, provable working set guarantees: the routing cost between node pairs is proportional to how recently these nodes communicated last time. Our SANs rely on skip lists (which serve as the topology) and provide additional interesting properties such as local routing.
