Resource management is only able to fullfil the desired goals if the needed resources are not only reserved but if the reservation is enforced by appropriate scheduling techniques. Scheduling mechanisms are necessary for all resources used during the processing of continuous-media data. As discussed in Section 3.1 this work concentrates on the buffer space and CPU resources. Mechanisms for these will be described in this chapter. How the requirements can be determined will be discussed in Chapter 5.
