Abstract:
The Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) is a traffic carrier protocol and the only one that counts for reliability. TCP incorporates a sliding window mechanism which controls the traffic flow from source to destination. The behavior of the window is of critical importance to TCP’s performance. TCP operates on an end-to-end basis, based on routes provided by a routing algorithm. Reliability issues dictate the need of alternate routes serving either as backup routes or as load balancing routes. The exact role of alternate routes is defined by the network manager. We point out that large scale topologies are more close to real networks in many aspects, and so they deserve more attention. We study the TCP window’s behavior for two major TCP versions and we address design issues, constraints and tradeoffs for large scale, similar to real, network topologies.
