A flowmeter is a set of traffic-related variables associated with a connection established in a network node as a result of the connection setup. Comprehensive quality-of-service provision to each packet flow is the purpose of flowmeter-based dynamic packet scheduling. The earliest deadline first (EDF) scheduling algorithm is adopted for rate allocation, delay control, and flow control. A gas pressure admission control algorithm is also presented to simplify EDF admission test. The delay performance of the scheduler is evaluated on a subnetwork of the Internet.
