Two important trends are expected to guide the de­
sign of next­generation networks. First, with the
commercialization of the Internet, providers will use
value­added services to di#erentiate their service of­
ferings from other providers; such services require
the use of sophisticated resource scheduling mech­
anisms in routers. Second, to enable extensibility
and the deployment of new services in a rapid and
cost­e#ective manner, routers will be instantiated us­
ing programmable network processors. In this re­
search, our goal is to develop sophisticated multipro­
cessor scheduling mechanisms that would enable net­
works that deploy such router platforms to provide
