Dynamic congestion control in interconnected computer networks
The authors evaluate a window-based congestion control mechanism in an internetwork environment. They also propose and study two dynamic-window congestion-control algorithms. These algorithms provide further control to the window mechanism by adjusting the window size in accordance with the availability of the network resources at the destination. A comparison of dynamic algorithms with fixed window control is provided in terms of throughput and delay performance. It is shown that dynamic algorithms have considerable performance advantages over fixed-window control.
