Impact of Drop Synchronisation on TCP Fairness in High Bandwidth-Delay Product Networks.
Leith, D. J. and Shorten, R. (2006) Impact of Drop Synchronisation on TCP Fairness in High Bandwidth-Delay Product Networks. In: Proceedings of the Fourth International Workshop on Protocols for Fast Long-Distance Networks (PFDLnet2006), February 2nd and 3rd 2006, Nara Prefectural New Public Hall, Nara, Japan.
In this paper we consider the performance of several well known high speed protocols in environments where individual flows experience different probabilities of seeing a drop in drop-tail buffers. Our initial results suggest the properties of networks in which these protocols are deployed can be sensitive to changes in these probabilities. Our results also suggest that AQM protocol co-design may be helpful in mitigating this sensitivity.
