Abstract

Disclosed is an service level (SL) arbitration mechanism using SL arbitrations and queue pair (QP) tenures. This mechanism is suitable for providing quality of service (QOS) differentiation in Infiniband* host channel adapters (HCA's) or switches and other fabrics that use the concept of traffic classes such as PCI express.
