We decide to start a WG last call on draft-ietf-tcpm-initcwnd.
Since there has been lots of discussions on this draft, we'll run for
longer than usual - until July 30th.
This means we can make some time at Vancouver if critical points are
raised during the last call.
Please provide your comments before the deadline.
A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts directories.
This draft is a work item of the TCP Maintenance and Minor Extensions
Working Group of the IETF.
Title : Increasing TCP's Initial Window
Author(s) : Jerry Chu
Filename : draft-ietf-tcpm-initcwnd-04.txt
Pages : 24
Date : 2012-06-28
This document proposes an experiment to increase the permitted TCP
initial window (IW) from between 2 and 4 segments, as specified in
RFC 3390, to 10 segments, with a fallback to the existing
recommendation when performance issues are detected. It discusses the
motivation behind the increase, the advantages and disadvantages of
the higher initial window, and presents results from several large
scale experiments showing that the higher initial window improves the
overall performance of many web services without resulting in a
congestion collapse. The document closes with a discussion of usage
and deployment for further experimental purpose recommended by the
IETF TCP Maintenance and Minor Extensions (TCPM) working group.
