This is a work-in-progress report on our work on designing realistic evaluation suites for testing high-speed TCP variants. In this work, we have created an experimental network model that captures some of the complex characteristics of propagation delays and background traffic [14, 15, 20]. We use our network model to evaluate a large collection of recently proposed TCPs for high-speed networks: BIC TCP, CUBIC, FAST, HSTCP, H-TCP, and STCP. While we do not claim that we have the most realistic… Expand

A model-driven emulation approach to large-scale TCP performance evaluation
TLDR
This work developed scalable virtualised evaluation environment for TCP (SVEET), a TCP performance evaluation testbed where real implementations of TCP variants can be accurately evaluated under diverse network configurations and workloads from real applications in large-scale network settings. Expand
Towards a User-Oriented Benchmark for Transport Protocols Comparison in very High Speed Networks
Standard TCP faces some performance limitations in very high speed wide area networks, mainly due to a long end-to-end feedback loop and a conservative behaviour with respect to congestion. Many TCPExpand
A comparison of TCP behaviour at high speeds using ns-2 and Linux
TLDR
This work compares with TCP NewReno the fairness of the congestion control algorithms for 5 high-speed TCP variants -- BIC, Cubic, Scalable, High-Speed and Hamilton -- on both ns-2 and on an experimental testbed running Linux. Expand
On the Performance Evaluation of High-Speed Transport Protocols
TLDR
In a controlled environment, XCP gave much better performance than the other TCPs, but was sensitive to misconfiguration and environmental factors, though, and was more difficult to deploy. Expand
SVEET! a scalable virtualized evaluation environment for TCP

  • 2009
TLDR
This work proposes a TCP performance evaluation testbed, called SVEET, on which real implementations of the TCP variants can be accurately evaluated under diverse network configurations and workloads in large-scale network settings. Expand
A comparative performance evaluation of DCCP

  • 2008 International Symposium on Performance Evaluation of Computer and Telecommunication Systems
  • 2008
TLDR
This work assesses the performance of DCCP CCID2 relative to TCP NewReno, and variants BIC and CUBIC, and also assesses fairness - how well these protocols might respond to each other when operating over the same end-to-end network path. Expand
An improved method for experimental evaluations of TCP Congestion Control Algorithms
Benchmarks are a vital part of most of the performed research activity. Internet is an extremely complex internetwork composed of many smaller but still complex networks based on the InternetExpand
Empirical Analysis of TCP Variants and Their Impact on GridFTP Port Requirements
TLDR
It is proved that alternatives to TCP Reno become applicable today, better performance is achievable at the cost of unfairness and operating systems relying on TCP Reno may become disadvantaged in the future with new TCP variants. Expand
Experimental and Analytical Analysis of TCP and UDP Protocols
The primary focus of this paper is to examine the performance of Transmission Control Protocol through simulation and modeling. After explaining modeling techniques for TCP, we also present modelingExpand
An extended evaluation of a collection of TCP Congestion Control Algorithms
TCP is the most used Transport Layer protocol in the Internet. Started as a reliable transmission method it has evolved through time to a mix of some quite complex protocols. Its ability to provideExpand

Experimental Evaluation of TCP Protocols for High-Speed Networks
TLDR
It is found that both scalable-TCP and FAST- TCP consistently exhibit substantial unfairness, even when competing flows share identical network path characteristics. Expand
Scalable TCP: improving performance in highspeed wide area networks
TLDR
The preliminary results gathered suggest that the deployment of Scalable TCP would have negligible impact on existing network traffic at the same time as improving bulk transfer performance in highspeed wide area networks. Expand
Improving TCP Performance in High Bandwidth High RTT Links Using Layered Congestion Control
TLDR
It is shown that LTCP has promising convergence properties, is about an order of magnitude faster than TCP in utilizing high bandwidth links, employs few parameters and is easy to understand. Expand
Dummynet: a simple approach to the evaluation of network protocols
TLDR
D dummynet works by intercepting communications of the protocol layer under test and simulating the effects of finite queues, bandwidth limitations and communication delays, and runs in a fully operational system, hence allowing the use of real traffic generators and protocol implementations.

TCP-Africa: an adaptive and fair rapid increase rule for scalable TCP
TLDR
This work proposes a new delay sensitive-congestion avoidance mode (TCP-Africa) that allows for scalable, aggressive behavior in large underutilized links, yet falls back to the more conservative TCP-Reno algorithm once links become well utilized and congestion is imminent. Expand
Time for a TCP Benchmark Suite ?

An analytical model is derived and it is shown that for a small buffer size, equal to 10% of the bandwidth-delay product, HighSpeed TCP can achieve more than 90%" of the bottleneck capacity. Expand

The CUBIC protocol modifies the linear window growth function of existing TCP standards to be a cubic function in order to improve the scalability of TCP over fast and long distance networks. Expand
Observations on the dynamics of a congestion control algorithm: the effects of two-way traffic
TLDR
This paper uses simulation to study the dynamics of the congestion cent rol algorithm embedded in the BSD 4.3-Tahoe TCP implementation and finds that the one-way traffic clustering and loss-synchronization phenomena persist in this new situation, albeit in a slightly modified form. Expand

This work proposes a new methodology for transforming anonymized traces of packet headers into application-neutral models of network traffic, suitable for synthetic traffic generation in simulations and testbeds, preserving the end-to-end nature ofnetwork traffic. Expand
