End-to-end congestion control for the internet: delays and stability

  title={End-to-end congestion control for the internet: delays and stability},
  author={Ramesh Johari and David Kim Hong Tan},
  journal={IEEE/ACM Trans. Netw.},
Under the assumption that queueing delays will eventually become small relative to propagation delays, we derive stability results for a fluid flow model of end-to-end Internet congestion control. The theoretical results of the paper are intended to be decentralized and locally implemented: each end system needs knowledge only of its own round-trip delay. Criteria for local stability and rate of convergence are completely characterized for a single resource, single user system. Stability… CONTINUE READING
