This paper concerns the attainment of QoS on a network and focuses on the management of two resources on routers: the link bandwidth and the CPU for achieving fair share resource management. A comparative analysis of four different schedulers is performed. In addition to CPU scheduling, this paper also investigates three different packet-dropping policies. Based on measurements made on a performance prototype of routers, insights into system behaviour and performance are presented.
