The results showed that the Solaris BM 1.6 software performed well, providing users true differentiated services. TCP traffic is much more predictable and controlled than UDP traffic, but the Solaris BM 1.6 software still proved to do a fairly reasonable job in segregating traffic classes proportionately. Deploying the PDP and PEP on a dedicated server offered the best results. Deploying the PDP and PEP on the application server, as a software-only solution, was the least intrusive solution. However, sufficient CPU resources must be available for best results. Finally, an architecture was proposed, with some code skeletons in Section , "Appendix A" that offer an integrated QoS Policy Based System and Network Management System. This is where the server is also monitored and reconfigured based on policies. This solution is a closed loop feedback architecture that offers promising performance results.
