Flow Control : A Comparative Survey

  title={Flow Control : A Comparative Survey},
  author={Mario Gerla and Leonard Kleinrock},
Packet switching offers attractive advantages over the more conventional circuit-switched scheme, namely, flexibility in setting up user connections and more efficient use of resources after the c o n n q p is established. However, if user demands are allowed to exceed the system Capacity. unpleasant congestion effects occur which rapidly neutralize the delay and efficiency advantages. Congestion can be eliminated by using an appropriate set of traffic monitoring and control procedures called… CONTINUE READING
