Paper Abstract

The OS/2 Resource Reservation System supports bandwidth reservation in the LAN Server Ultimedia multimedia file server. This paper describes how audio/video streams are specified and managed by the resource reservation system. The problem of variable-bit-rate stream utilization is considered: It is shown that the peak-rate of the variable-bit-rate stream can be reduced as the size of the destination buffer is increased beyond a single block. A buffered-peak-rate descriptor is presented that computes peak rate of variable-bit-rate stream based upon a particular client-buffer size. The framework and interfaces of the resource reservation system are described.
