A Hierarchical Quality of Service Control Architecture for Configurable Multimedia Applications

In order to achieve the best application-level Quality-of-Service (QoS), multimedia applications need to be dynamically tuned and reconfigured to adapt to fluctuating computing and communication environments. QoS-sensitive adaptations are critical when applications run in general-purpose systems, with no mechanisms provided for supporting resource reservations and real-time guarantees. Such adaptations are triggered by resource availability variations caused by best-effort resource allocations in unpredictable open environments.
