TCP Internal Buffers Optimization for Fast Long-Distance Links
— In recent years, issues regarding the behavior of TCP in high-speed and long-distance networks have been extensively addressed in the networking research community, both because TCP is the most widespread transport protocol in the current Internet and because bandwidth-delay product continues to grow. The well known problem of TCP in high bandwidthdelay product networks is that the TCP Additive Increase Multiplicative Decrease AIMD probing mechanism is too slow in adapting the sending rate to the end-to-end available bandwidth. To overcome this problem, many modifications have been proposed such as FAST TCP [1], STCP [2], HSTCP [3], HTCP [4], BIC TCP [5] and CUBIC TCP [6]. The goal of this work is to investigate, by using both analytical models and simulation results, optimal sizing of the retransmission and out-of-order TCP buffers in case of modified TCP congestion control settings and to highlight differences between NewReno TCP and SACK TCP packet loss recovery schemes in ter...
