Burst TCP: an approach for benefiting mice flows

Glauco E. GonçalvesStenio FernandesDênio MarizDjamel Sadok

Standard TCP congestion control mechanisms degrade performance of small flows, especially during the Slow Start phase, which often causes multiple packet losses. We propose a modified TCP startup mechanism, called Burst TCP (B-TCP), which employs a responsive growth scheme based on current window size, to improve performance for small flows. Our simulation experiments, considering heavy-tailed traffic, show that B-TCP can significantly reduce both transfer times and packet losses for small flows without causing damage to large flows. Additionally, B-TCP is easy to implement and requires TCP adjustment at the sender side only.
