Performance of Multisource Application Layer Multicast Routing: A Cost-Based Approach
In this work, a simulative study on the cost of multisource ALM routing protocols is presented. The authors discuss a multiplicative pricing model for multisource ALM based on the single-source cost model. By simulating various ALM protocols, the study discovered that a multiplicative characteristic is held between the cost of single-source and multisource ALM routing. The multiplicative pricing model makes the minimum cost of multisource ALM more clear for protocol designer and gives a intuitive way to examine the cost of a designed multisource ALM without incurring too many computation complexity.
