In October of '86, the Internet had the first of what became a series of 'congestion collapses'. During this period, the data throughput from LBL to UC Berkeley (sites separated by 400 yards and three IMP hops) dropped from 32 Kbps to 40 bps. Mike Karels 1 and I were fascinated by this sudden factor-of-thousand drop in bandwidth and embarked on an investigation of why things had gotten so bad. We wondered, in particular, if the 4.3BSD (Berkeley UNIX) TCP was mis-behaving or if it could be tuned… Expand

TLDR
The solution, referenced as “Proposed-TCP”, can identity packet loss due to congestion, wireless channel error and route failure, by using multiple end-to-end metrics and can manage the incipient congestion in the network also. Expand
MMPTCP: a novel transport protocol for data centre networks
TLDR
Maximum MultiPath TCP (MMPTCP), a novel transport protocol for modern data centres, is proposed and evaluated in a FatTree topology under various network conditions, finding that MMP TCP decreases the loss rate of all the links throughout the network and helps competing flows to achieve a better performance.

DC-Vegas: A delay-based TCP congestion control algorithm for datacenter applications
TLDR
DC-Vegas combines the performance advantages of DCTCP with the deployment advantages of delay-based TCP Vegas, and can meet both soft real-time and incast avoidance requirements of datacenters, requiring minimal deployment modification to existing datacenter hardware/software. Expand
Simple Distributed Programming for Scalable Software-defined Networks
TLDR
This thesis presents two distributed control platforms, Kandoo and Beehive, that are straightforward to program and demonstrate that Kandoo can be used to adapt and optimize Transform Control Protocol (TCP) in a large-scale High-Performance Computing (HPC) datacenter with a low network overhead.

Backscatter from the data plane - Threats to stability and security in information-centric network infrastructure
TLDR
Threats to the stability and security of the content distribution system are analyzed in theory, simulations, and practical experiments, and it is suggested that major architectural refinements are required prior to global ICN deployment in the real world. Expand

Divergence of Timeout Algorithms for Packet Retransmissions
TLDR
It is shown that a timeout algorithm consists of essentially five layers or procedures which can be independently chosen and modified, and a number of timeout algorithms proposed in the literature have been decomposed into these five layers. Expand

Something a Host Could Do with Source Quench: The Source Quench Introduced Delay (SQuID)
TLDR
The proposal is for each source host IP module to introduce some delay between datagrams sent to the same destination host to explore the issue of what a host could do with a source quench. Expand

Why TCP timers don't work well
TLDR
It is concluded that, if the authors aim at high performance, they should use external events as a first line of defense against failures, and depend on timers only in cases where external notification has failed. Expand
