This invention proposes a mechanism for bandwidth management for stride transfers. It also proposes a dynamic bandwidth management scheme based on transfer priority. The important components of this invention are: a device capable of initiating stride transfers, a bandwidth management scheme for allocating system bandwidth across multiple transfer initiaters. Existing stride transfer schemes have no mechanism for bandwidth management. This invention proposes a mechanism to solve this problem and performs dynamic bandwidth management based on transfer priority.
