Digital video services, scientific visualization and other multimedia applications require delivery of high network throughput to end user applications. In this paper we identify bottlenecks in the data path between high-speed networks and applications. Using performance of multimedia applications as a metric, the effectiveness of solutions to reduce network, operating system, and user bottlenecks is explored experimentally.
