TCP Performance based on Queue Occupation
2001 (English)In: Proceedings of the Third Conference on Computer Science and Systems Engineering, 2001, 127-134 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
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 shifts in 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. We will illustrate the bad performance using the queue occupancy and also show that a proposed feedback scheme improves the performance, in a simulation environment.
