Tcp Maintenance and Minor Extensions (tcpm) Wg Detection and Quantification of Packet Reordering with Tcp Draft-zimmermann-tcpm-reordering-detection-02

This document specifies an algorithm for the detection and quantification of packet reordering for TCP. In the absence of explicit congestion notification from the network, TCP uses only packet loss as an indication of congestion. One of the signals TCP uses to determine loss is the arrival of three duplicate acknowledgments. However, this heuristic is not… CONTINUE READING
