NIC-level Support for Quality of Service (QoS)
We have suggested NIC-level rate control mechanism and coordinated admission control/scheduling mechanism. The rate control mechanism works by controlling the rate at which packets are injected at the source NIC into the network. The admission control/scheduling mechanism maintains global knowledge of cluster traffic patterns. We also provide an interface so that applications can specify bandwidth requirements of their flows to the underlying network.
