We evaluate several retransmission policies for transport protocols that support multihoming, such as SCTP. We find that schemes that attempt to improve the chance of success by retransmitting to an alternate peer IP address often degrade performance. Our results show that for better performance, new data transmissions and retransmissions should be sent to the same peer IP address. We also find that our Multiple Fast Retransmit algorithm further improves performance by reducing the number of… CONTINUE READING
