Fair & useful comparisons: how should we evaluate new TCP proposals ?

A fundamental feature of TCP traffic is that it is elastic i.e. attempts to dynamically match network demand to capacity. This is achieved via the use of a congestion control algorithm within the protocol. In recent years it has become clear that the current algorithm often performs poorly on high-speed networks and this has led to numerous proposals for changes. Evaluating such proposals in a consistent and meaningful manner is far from straightforward. We present the results of recent work on benchmark tests for the experimental evaluation of TCP proposals, including Scalable-TCP, High-Speed TCP, FAST-TCP, BIC-TCP and H-TCP proposals.
