In this thesis, a stateless active queue management algorithm called “PUNSI” which aims to achieve fair bandwidth allocation in congested routers is proposed. This algorithm prevents unresponsive flows from dominating available bandwidth shared with responsive flows by penalizing packets from unresponsive flows hopefully with a higher probability than those from responsive flows. It is motivated by the observation that unresponsive flows tend to generate more bursty traffic than responsive ones… CONTINUE READING
