Using a simple model of saturated, synchronized and homogeneous sources of TCP Reno with drop-tail queue management and a discrete-time framework, we derive formulae for stationary as well as transient queueing behavior that shed light on the relationship between large buffers and work conservation (queue never empties). Using simulations, the relevance of the results for the case of non-synchronized sources is demonstrated. In particular, we demonstrate that a certain simple lower bound for… CONTINUE READING
