General AIMD Congestion Control

  title={General AIMD Congestion Control},
  author={Yang Richard Yang and Simon S. Lam},
Instead of the increase-by-one decrease-to-half strategy used in TCP Reno for congestion window adjustment, we consider the general c ase such that the increase value and decrease ratio are parameters. That is, i n the congestion avoidance state, the window size is increased by per window of packets acknowledged and it is decreased to f the current value when there is congestion indication. We refer to this window adjustment stra tegy asgeneral additive increase multiplicative decrease (GAIMD… CONTINUE READING
