Abstract-- The routing infrastructure of the Internet has be-
come resistant to fundamental changes and the use of overlay
networks has been proposed to provide additional flexibility and
control. One of the most prominent configurable components
of an overlay network is its topology, which can be dynami-
cally reconfigured to accommodate communication requirements
that vary over time. In this paper, we study the problem of
determining dynamic topology reconfiguration for service overlay
networks with dynamic communication requirement, and the
ideal goal is to find the optimal reconfiguration policies that
can minimize the potential overall cost of using an overlay. We
start by observing the properties of the optimal reconfiguration
policies through studies on small systems and find structures in
the optimal reconfiguration policies. Based on these observations,
we propose heuristic methods for constructing different flavors of
