Most congestion control algorithms try to emulate processor sharing (PS) by giving each competing flow an equal share of a bottleneck link. This approach leads to fairness, and prevents long flows from hogging resources. For example, if a set of flows with the same round trip time share a bottleneck link, TCP’s congestion control mechanism tries to achieve… CONTINUE READING
