TCP Vegas is a well-known delay-based congestion control mechanism. Studies have indicated that TCP Vegas outperforms TCP Reno in many aspects. However, Reno currently remains the most widely deployed TCP variant in the Internet. This is mainly because of the incompatibility of Vegas with Reno. The performance of Vegas is generally mediocre in environments(More)
In this paper, we propose a router-based congestion avoidance mechanism (RoVegas) for TCP Vegas. TCP Ve-gas detects network congestion in the early stage and successfully prevents periodic packet loss that usually occurs in TCP Reno. It has been demonstrated that TCP Vegas out-performs TCP Reno in many aspects. However, TCP Vegas suffers several problems(More)
—In this article, we first depict the call-role sensitivity problem in Network Address Translation (NAT) traversal, and then propose an approach to resolving the problem. The problem is whether a direct connection can be found between two peers across NATs mainly depends on the NAT type at the caller's side. We propose the extra-candidate connectivity check(More)
False positives/negatives Weighted voting Majority voting Creditability a b s t r a c t False positives (FPs) and false negatives (FNs) happen in every Intrusion Detection System (IDS). How often they occur is regarded as a measurement of the accuracy of the system. Frequent occurrences of FPs not only reduce the throughput of an IDS as FPs block the normal(More)
In this article, we present a new slow-start variant, which improves the throughput of TCP Vegas, we call this new mechanism Gallop-Vegas which quickly ramps up to the available bandwidth and reduces the burstiness during the slow-start phase. Since TCP (Transmission Control Protocol) is known to send bursts of packets during its slow-start phase due to the(More)
Battery-powered mobile devices substantially constrain energy resources. Process-level energy profiling tools can identify the most energy-consuming process and detail the energy usage of hardware components. With the help of energy profiling tools, programmers can fine-tune the energy consumption of processes to extend battery lifetime. However, profiling(More)
Keywords: P2P-MANET Cross-layer design IPv6 Wireless ad hoc P2P live streaming Mobile wireless P2P a b s t r a c t Peer-to-peer (P2P) live streaming over mobile ad hoc network (MANET) is a state-of-the-art technique for wireless multimedia applications, such as entertainments and disaster recovery. The peers share the live streaming over MANET via multi-hop(More)
—In this article, an NAT-compatibility testbed is designed to automatically conduct the repeated experiments, collect the test results, and verify the direct connection rate (DCR) of any NAT traversal programs. Achieving a high DCR is important because using relays may unnecessarily increase the bandwidth cost, processing load of the relay servers, and the(More)
