Issues on Performance Measurements of TCP
2002 (English)In: Proceedings of Radiovetenskap och Kommunikation 2002, 2002Conference paper (Other academic)
Due to the rapid growth of the Internet and the use of packet data traffic, the communication world has to find ways of improving performance of this traffic. New areas of use include, e.g., radio transmissions and real time data. This work discusses some issues of performance when using TCP and also present some of the measures that are used today. Furthermore we discuss this matter from the perspective of a bottleneck queue and present a measure that can be used from that viewpoint in the network. This measure is illustrated by comparing two versions of TCP and form the basis for a discussion of what models will be needed to actually achieve the goals that we have. A control structure is presented and using simulations and a control interpretation we note that RED introduces an implicit wanted steady state value of the queue length. We use the dropping of packets as a control signal and the output signal is the queue length.
