-Two important requirements for protocol implementations to be able to provide quality of service (QoS) guarantees within the endsystem are: 1) efficient processor scheduling for application and protocol processing and 2) efficient mechanisms for data movement. Scheduling is needed to guarantee that the application and protocol tasks involved in processing… CONTINUE READING
