Leith, Douglas J. and Andrew, Lachlan L. H. and Quetchenbach, Tom and Shorten, Robert N. (2008) Experimental Evaluation of delay/loss-based TCP congestion control algorithms. In: Proceedings of the 6th International Workshop on Protocols for Fast Long-Distance Networks (PFLDnet 2008) , 5-7 March, 2008, Manchester, U.K.
We present initial experimental results for TCP Illinois and Compound TCP. These tests are for relatively simple scenarios yet they are sufficient to highlight several interesting issues. We observe that both TCP Illinois and Compound TCP can exhibit poor scaling behaviour as path BDP increases. As a result, link utilisation can be low and network responsiveness can become sluggish as BDP increases. We also document a number of important implementation issues observed during our tests.
