ABSTRACT
This paper presents Quo Vadis, an evolving framework for intelligent
traffic management in very large communication networks. Quo Vadis
is designed to exploit topological properties of large networks as well
as their  spatio-temporal dynamics to optimize multiple performance
criteria  through cooperation among nodes in the network. It employs a
distributed representation of network state information using local
load measurements  supplemented by a less precise global summary.
Routing decisions in Quo Vadis are based on parameterized heuristics
designed to optimize various performance metrics in an anticipatory or
pro-active as well as compensatory or reactive  mode and to minimize the
overhead associated with traffic management.  The results of simulation
experiments within a grid network clearly demonstrate the ability of
Quo Vadis to avoid congestion and minimize message delay under a variety
of network load conditions.
