In order to answer this question appropriately, it is important to
first understand what Resource Management means within the realm of
Typically, when one talks about Resource Management, what we are
really talking about is the method of utilizing hardware and software
in task-appropriate ways to minimize cost and maximize network
I was able to find a report entitled, A Case for Customizable
Resource Management in Networks which appears at the following link:
Essentially, this articles main point seems to be that,
is a key building block in the implementation of an
electronic services market.
This article looks like a must read in the area of Resource
Management. It also contains a lengthy Reference list that should
enhance your view of the area. It should also be noted that this
article seems to take a very strong positive stance for the
implementation of Resource Management in Networks.
Another excellent source of information on Resource Management is an
article entitled, Resource Management for IP Telephony Networks that
This article looks at ways to improve the QoS over such networks using
a variety of resource management methods including simple fat and
congestion sensitive redirection techniques. Their results indicate
adding QoS sensitivity to congestion sensitive redirection
maximizes resource utilization while simultaneously maximizing the
Microsoft also has a article on Resource Management specifically
geared towards their Datacenter Server. It gives details and some
possible solutions for implementing Resource Management using
RedHat Linux also has some HOWTO information on implementing Resource
Management in Networks, and some basic information to get you up and
running with Resource Management.
Perhaps the only downside to Resource Management in networks, is the
time it takes to evaluate and analyze the needs of the network, and
the cost associated with ensuring that the correct and the proper
computing platform and services are used to maximize your investment.
All this effort, and initial investment, may well pay off in leaps and
bounds after the network is tuned and more efficiently using
resources. However, depending on the size of the organization, ROI
(Return on Investment) may well be lower than expectations: or take
longer than expected.
