         NFV Architectural Framework for Real-time Analytics and
                              Orchestration

             draft-krishnan-nfvrg-real-time-analytics-orch-00

Abstract

   One of the key goals of NFV is to optimize the infrastructure
   resource usage while driving operational simplicity. Real-time
   analytics providing insight into various components such as compute
   (e.g. dynamic CPU utilization), storage (e.g. dynamic capacity
   usage), network (e.g. dynamic bandwidth utilization), energy (e.g.
   dynamic power consumption) is key to not only providing visibility
   into the NFV infrastructure and thus driving operational simplicity
   but also optimizing resource usage for the purposes of
   orchestration. This draft focusses on a NFV architecture for real-
   time analytics and orchestration including Big Data predictive
   analytics for addressing the aforementioned requirements.

1. Introduction

   Operator Network Point-of-Presence (N-PoP) locations [ETSI-NFV-TERM]
   often have capacity, energy and other constraints. Thus, optimizing
   overall resource usage is an important requirement [ETSI-NFV-REQ].
   The general case must consider a distributed (elastic) VNF platform
