TCP Throughput Collapse, also known as Incast, is a pathological behavior of TCP that results in gross under-utilization of link capacity in certain many-to-one communication patterns. This phenomenon has been observed by others in distributed storage, MapReduce and web-search workloads. In this paper we focus on understanding the dynamics of Incast. We use empirical data to reason about the dynamic system of simultaneously communicating TCP entities. We propose an analytical model to account… CONTINUE READING
