A Potential Resource Problem for SDNs

See Gartner’s latest research on the application performance monitoring landscape and how APM suites are becoming more and more critical to the business, brought to you in partnership with AppDynamics.

A new article on SDN Central sees potential problems in software-defined networking's future if network engineers treat their resource allocations like they're unlimited.  This is a common problem for software deployment, where virtualization has caused some development teams to neglect code optimization for the efficient use of resources because they have seemingly unlimited compute power.

If every application can manipulate the network configuration and request resources, how and where do you resolve conflicts? (And who resolves them?) Don’t we all always want the best service, the fastest link, the lowest latency?
