Abstract: The fact that there is a lack of comparisons between methods for virtual path connection (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, decentralized approaches can be categorized iterative and local. The local approaches that we have evaluated uses the number of ongoing connections to decide how much capacity is needed during the next updating period. An iterative approach uses a distributed way of calculating the capacity distribution. By evaluating these, we have then been able to do a survey over the performances.
