Impact of bursty losses on TCP performance

Abstract

In this paper we analyze the performance of a TCP-like ow control mechanism in a lossy environment. The transmission rate in the control scheme that we consider has a linear growth rate; whenever a loss occurs, the transmission rate is halved. This approximates the performance of several versions of TCP that divide their congestion window by two when a loss… (More)
