Abstract

This paper presents an RTT-fair TCP congestion control using ACK interval measurement and extends the approach to have inter-protocol friendliness, especially with CUBIC TCP. In the previous RTT-fair TCP congestion control, including ours, estimation of RTTs of a competing flow had been a problem. We try to solve this problem by measuring ACK arrival intervals, which are observable parameters by an end host. This approach enables estimation of congestion window behaviors, in addition to RTTs, of a competing flow. We then extend our congestion control to have friendliness to CUBIC-TCP, in addition to classical TCP-Reno, in an adaptive manner. Extensive experiment results are shown for simulations and implementations and effectiveness of our approach is confirmed.
