Solaris Bandwidth Manager Architecture

Solaris Bandwidth Manager consists of the following major components:

  • The administration tool, batool, provides a graphical interface for configuring the Solaris Bandwidth Manager software. This can be run as an applet or an application from any machine in your network that has a Java Virtual Machine.

  • The policy agent implements the configuration and handles communication with the kernel module. See “The Policy Agent” for details of how the policy agent works.

  • The kernel module is viewed as a STREAMS driver, /dev/ipqos, by the tools in user space, and is viewed as a STREAMS module, ipqos, by the IP stack. It contains the classifier and the scheduler.
