As the network bandwidth and delay increase, TCP becomes inefficient. Data intensive applications over high-speed networks such as the computational grids need new transport protocol to support them. This paper describes a general purpose high performance data transfer protocol as an application level solution. The protocol, named UDT, or UDP-based data transfer protocol, works above UDP with reliability and congestion control mechanisms. UDT uses both positive acknowledgement and negative… CONTINUE READING
