Feedback from multicast group members is vital for many multicast protocols. In order to avoid feedback implosion in very large groups feedback algorithms with well behaved scaling-properties must be chosen. In this paper we analyse the performance of three typical feedback algorithms described in the literature. Apart from the basic trade-off between feedback latency and response duplicates we especially focus on the algorithms’ sensitivity to the quality of the group size estimation.
