CWRR: A Scheduling Algorithm for Maximizing the Performance of Quality of Service Network Router
This paper presents a novel approach for implementing quality of service as demanded by evolving applications in the Internet. For some decades now, research efforts have led to the extension of the TCP/IP in order to make the Internet a full-fledged quality of service network. Novel in the extension is the invention of the integrated services and Differentiated services architectures. The Differentiated services architecture was widely accepted among researchers because of its scalability. In order to achieve some of the refinements to the current TCP/IP protocol by the IETF for DiffServ implementation in the Internet, new traffic management mechanisms such as differential packet buffering cum differential allocation of available link bandwidth are needed.
