Overview: This Microsoft white paper focuses on the construction problem and very few addressed its scheduling problem which is also very important for the overall performance. It studies the scheduling problem in DON and models it as a classical min-cost network flow problem. Later both the global optimal scheduling scheme is proposed and distributed heuristic algorithm to maximize the system throughput. Experimental results indicate that the algorithms outperform other schemes and the throughput gain is up to 80%.
