Arguments in favour of admission control for TCP owsL

  title={Arguments in favour of admission control for TCP owsL},
  author={L Massouli and James Roberts},
We advocate the use of admission control to limit the number of TCP ows on a network link to ensure that each has a minimal acceptable throughput. We demonstrate that, in the absence of such a control, the ineeective traac due to the retransmission of lost packets constitutes a signiicant overhead and can even lead to congestion collapse in certain conngurations. A second cause of ineeciency is the incomplete transmission of documents whose transfer is abandoned by users or higher protocol… CONTINUE READING
