Paper Abstract

This paper examines the feasibility of networked environments as the basis for image information systems. Experiments are conducted to investigate the effect of the network on an image display application, using an Ethernet network. It is shown that for typical configurations the network is not the major bottleneck in display of large images. The major factors are the display software used, CPU performance and the workstation memory capacity. To generate significant delays due to network traffic with a small workgroup setup, an artificial configuration was required that would not be employed in practice. To support larger image datasets and greater numbers of users, options for enhancing the network are examined.
