TCP Performance based on Queue Occupation
2001 (English)Report (Other academic)
The main protocol for flow and congestion control on the Internet is the Transmission Control Protocol, TCP. This protocol was constructed and developed based on heuristic arguments, and its main purpose is to prevent network congestion. Because of changes in the character of the Internet traffic, TCP does not work as well as when it was designed - a problem that has been addressed by researchers in different ways. In this contribution, the bad performance of TCP will be illustrated using queue occupation. Simulations have been made using a simple simulation testbed implemented in the Matlab tools Simulink and StateFlow, as well as a more complex environment in a simulator developed at Berkeley called ns-2. It is seen that a modified TCP implementation yields significant performance improvements.
