A Linux Implementation of a Differentiated Services Router

  • The Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) is currently working on the development of Differentiated Services (DiffServ). DiffServ seems to be a promising technology for next-generation IP networks supporting Quality-of-Services (QoS). Emerging applications such as IP telephony and time-critical business applications can benefit significantly from the DiffServ approach since the current Internet often can not provide the required QoS. This paper describes an implementation of Differentiated Services for Linux routers and end systems. The implementation is based on the Linux traffic control package and is, therefore, very flexible. It can be used in different network environments as first-hop, boundary or interior router for Differentiated Services. In addition to the implementation architecture, the paper describes performance results demonstrating the usefulness of the DiffServ concept in general and the implementation in particular.
