Multi-class Applications for Parallel Usage of a Guaranteed Rate and a Scavenger Service
— Grid computing requires network services beyond what is currently provided by the Best-Effort Internet. Among the different approaches towards network Quality of Service, aggregate scheduling, which maps micro-flows to a small number of different service classes, offers sufficient scalability to the size of the Internet. The Differentiated Services architecture of the Internet Engineering Task Force is such an approach. Recently further Best-Effort like services based on aggregate scheduling have been proposed like the less than Best-Effort Scavenger Service and the Alternative Best-Effort Service. In this paper we briefly introduce the existing aggregate based approaches to Quality of Service. We take a heterogeneous mix of Transmission Control Protocol and User Datagram Protocol flows into account and complement services by adding transport protocol specific elements, if necessary and appropriate. In particular we show multi-class applications that are designed to apply a Gu...
