An Integrated Congestion Management Architecture for Internet Hosts
This paper presents a novel framework for managing network congestion from an end-to-end perspective. Our work is motivated by several trends in traffic patterns that threaten the long-term stability of the Internet. These trends include the use of multiple independent concurrent flows by Web applications and the increasing use of transport protocols and applications that do not adapt to congestion. We present an end-system architecture centered around a Congestion Manager (CM) that ensures proper congestion behavior and allows applications to easily adapt to network congestion. Our framework integrates congestion management across all applications and transport protocols. The CM maintains congestion parameters and exposes an API to enable applications to learn about network characteristics, pass information to the CM, and schedule data transmissions. Internally, it uses a stable rate-based control algorithm, a scheduler to regulate transmissions, and a lightweight loss-resilient pr...
