Modern networks are now capable of guaranteeing a consistent Quality of Service (QoS) to multimedia traffic streams. A number of major operating system vendors are also working hard to extend these guarantees into the end-system. In both cases, however, there remains the problem of determining a service rate sufficient to ensure the desired Quality of Service. Source modelling is not a sustainable approach in the network case and it is even less feasible to model the demands of multimedia applications. The ESPRIT Measure project is successfully using online measurement and estimation to perform resource allocation for bursty traffic in ATM networks. In this paper we consider the applicability of the same theory to resource allocation in a multimedia operating system which offers QoS guarantees to its applications.
