A Dynamic Quality of Service Middleware Agent for Mediating Application Resource Usage
High-bandwidth applications with time-dependent resource requirements demand certain resource level assurances in order to operate correctly. Quality of Service resource management techniques are being successfully developed that allow network systems to provide such assurances. These solutions generally assume that the operating system at either end of the network is capable of handling the throughput requirements of the applications. However, real operating systems have to manage many concurrent applications with varying resource requirements. Without specialized support, the operating system cannot guarantee the resources needed for any particular application. In support of these kinds of applications we have developed a middleware agent called a dynamic QoS manager (DQM) that mediates application resource usage so as to ensure that applications get the resources they need in order to provide adequate performance. The DQM employs a variety of algorithms to determine application res...
