Description Multimedia systems are gaining importance as novel computer and communication system architectures, which are specialized to the storage and transfer of video documents. Consider a multimedia-ondemand server who transmits video documents through a high-speed network, to geographically distributed clients. The server accumulates requests for specific documents in separate queues. The queues need to share the transmission medium in some fashion, typically in Round-Robin mode. We describe the resulting performance modeling problem, and develop an approximate representation using queuing networks. Our analytic model enables the efficient implementation of a new scheduling scheme, that we call the Local RoundRobin (LRR). We show that LRR yields significant improvement in system performance, compared to the original Round-Robin. 1 Introduction 1.1 The Multimedia Server System Multimedia servers are quite different from those of conventional computer file systems, due to their strict timin...
