As of 2.6.6 kernel, TCP Westwood, which mainly addresses issues in
wireless networks, BIC TCP, and TCP Vegas are all included besides TCP
NewReno, although not enabled by default. The others can be downloaded
from the given websites. There are probably others that I forgot to
mention. Apologies to them in advance.
Any chance Westwood will get into the 2.4 kernel as well?
Making the current TCP more ``efficient'' by increasing cwnd faster is not
an adequate solution, although doing that will likely produce higher
throughput in today's Internet. We also must consider issues such as
fairness to other flows, stability of the network in terms of queue
oscillation and packet loss, and how well these solutions would scale in
future networks. A lot of experiments are still needed to determine which
is the most appropriate under what circumstances.
Both of the two that I read about (Highspeed TCP and FAST tcp)
did indeed increase the cwnd faster, unless I mis-understood
the papers. Granted they do it in clever ways...
Thanks for the links.
