Riassunto analitico
The proposed work try to achieve the main objectives of implement and investigate the behaviour of the BandWidth Inheritance protocol in a GNU/Linux system plus the AQuoSA framework.<br><br>Firstly a modification of the Linux kernel and of the framework, so that they support the BWI protocol, is presented.<br>After that, a deep analysis of performances and behaviour of the modified system is accomplished, in order to investigate both the benefits effectively produced by the protocol and the implementation introduced overhead, thus providing as much quantitative data as we can for future research steps in this area.
