Improved Model for a Non-Standard TCP Behavior


Mohammed Abdullah Alnuem


Vol. 11  No. 10  pp. 45-52


In previous work [1] the author used a simple periodic model to mathematically estimate the performance of TCP when using a non standard congestion window cut policy where TCP cuts window size after packet drops using a function of the error rate p instead of using fixed cut factor (usually 0.5). In this work the author improve the model in [1] to capture more realistic aspects of TCP behavior so that the packet loss does not follow a simple periodic pattern. The proposed model also open the door for more improvements in the future to include other aspects of a TCP behavior like the effect of timeouts which usually occur after sever congestions.
