The paper describes the design and implementation of L4ATM, an ATM (asynchronous transfer mode) based networking server. While ATM emphasizes deterministic high speed communication, applications can not yet fully utilize its potential. We demonstrate an architecture-and a corresponding implementation-to resolve this dilemma by developing implementable resource quantification techniques and QoS (Quality Of Service) management algorithms for host resources. L4 ATM has been built in the context of DROPS (Dresden Real-Time Operating System). DROPS supports coexisting real time and time sharing applications in a μkernel environment. Evaluating L4ATM's implementation in a real world environment, we show that: (i) performance guarantees are maintained under heavy time sharing load, and (ii) the implementation outperforms a standard OS significantly
