Performance of TCP/IP: the case of two Controlled Sources

Abstract

In order to control the ow in TCP/IP protocol, each TCP source uses a transmission window which indicates the number of packets that may be transmitted by the source but not yet acknowledged by the destination. We consider the Tahoe algorithm 7] developed by Van Jacobson for the adjustment of the window size and the computations of time-out values. This paper analyses the synchronization and coupling that occur between several controlled sources using this algorithm. We restrict to two controlled sources for simplicity of presentation.
