Zhang, Zhongwei and Zhou, Hong and Leis, John (2005) Throughput and fairness performance of multiple STT-Vegas connections. In: 3rd IASTED International Conference on Communications and Computer Networks, 24-26 Oct 2005, Marina del Rey, USA.Full text not available from this repository.
TCP Vegas proposed a mechanism to improve TCP congestion control in the Internet. However, Vegas exhibits unfairness characteristics towards multiple TCP connections and does not perform well in a traffic asymmetric network. This paper introduces a simple modification to TCP Vegas, namely STT-Vegas, to improve the performance of TCP Vegas and present its performance for multiple TCP connections. The simulation studies have shown that STT-Vegas provides better overall performance than its counterparts (i.e. Vegas, Reno) on fairness, throughput and packet loss in various network traffic scenarios.
