We propose and analyze a cost-based, resource-reservation admission control algorithm for handling mixed workloads in modern multimedia systems such as a digital library multimedia system that must provide access services to heterogeneous objects stored in the library. The cost-based scheme considered in the paper is based on the concept of "rewards" and "penalties" associated with requests of various object types. Instead of admitting object requests until resources are exhausted as a condition for admission control, resources are reserved to requests of different types dynamically based on the cost-based scheme so that the system is capable of maximizing the total reward received by the system in response to workload changes in the environment.
