Abstract: Networked safety-critical applications have to rely upon a certain Quality of Service (QoS). Internet, however, might not be that reliable in that respect. Thus, quality feedback towards the application is a crucial aspect. This contribution reviews typical origins of QoS problems and discusses possibilities how to monitor them. It also presents a lightweight monitoring solution for bandwidth problems which can be used for quality feedback towards the application.
