Methods, systems and computer program products are provided for type of service classification of a communication request for an application executing on a server. An application plug-in associated with the application is provided in an operating system kernel of the server. The application plug-in receives the communication request and obtains application level information from the received communication request. The application plug-in further assigns a type of service classification to the received communication request based on the obtained application level information and provides the assigned type of service classification information for the communication request to a process executing on the server for processing communications from the server responsive to the communication request.

Claim 1:

Method for type of service classification of a communication request for an application executing on a server, the method comprising the steps of:
providing an application plug-in associated with the application, the application plug-in being in an operating system kernel of the server;
wherein the application plug-in performs the following steps:
receiving the communication request;
obtaining application level information from the received communication request;
assigning a type of service classification to the received communication request based on the obtained application level information; and
providing the assigned type of service classification information for the communication request to a process executing on the server for processing communications from the server responsive to the communication request.
