Abstract

In this paper we revisit the interaction between baseRTT estimation and congestion control action. We develop a simple AIMD-based scheme that allows network buffers to drain and thus demonstrate in a constructive manner that, with proper design, it is indeed possible for flows traversing a bottleneck link to estimate their base RTT reliably.
