Abstract: The fact that there is a lack of comparisons between methods for VPC management makes it important to evaluate fundamentally different methods. We have tried to find representatives of different ways of calculating the capacity distribution. A central approach uses global information about demands and resources, while decentralized approaches can be categorized into distributed-iterative and local. The local approaches that we have evaluated use the number of ongoing connections to decide how much capacity that is needed during the next updating period. A distributed-iterative approach uses a distributed way of calculating the capacity reservations. By evaluating these, we have then been able to do a survey over the performances.
