  • The TCP protocol is used by the majority of the network applications on the Internet. TCP performance is strongly influenced by its congestion control algorithms that limit the amount of transmitted traffic based on the estimated network capacity and utilization. Because the freely available Linux operating system has gained popularity especially in the network servers, its TCP implementation affects many of the network interactions carried out today. We describe the fundamentals of the Linux… CONTINUE READING
