This paper presents a characterization of various current approaches to quality of service (QoS) management in distributed, real-time systems. The characterization is based on an eight-point comparison of selected research: middleware interface, handling of violations, support of distributed applications, monitored data, requirements specification, characteristics of the supported real-time systems, overall system architecture, and quality of service dimensions supported. The comparisons are summarized in a tabular form with key references for further reading.
