This paper generalizes the TCP Vegas congestion avoidance mechanism and uses accumulation, buffered packets of a flow inside network routers, as a congestion measure based on which a family of congestion control schemes can be derived. We call this model Accumulation-based Congestion Control (ACC), which fits into the nonlinear optimization framework(More)
— Traditionally QoS capabilities have been constructed out of open-loop building blocks such as packet schedulers and traffic conditioners. In this paper, we consider closed-loop techniques to achieve a range of service differentiation capabilities. We use an accumulation-based congestion control scheme [31] as a data-plane building block to provide an(More)
— This paper 1 generalizes the TCP Vegas congestion avoidance mechanism and proposes a model to use accumulation, buffered packets of a flow inside network routers, as a congestion measure on which a family of congestion control schemes can be derived. We call this model accumulation-based congestion control (ACC). We use a bit-by-bit fluid model to define(More)
