Evaluating Congestion Control Mechanisms
Two new documents have been published on the evaluation of congestion control mechanisms. A document on "Metrics for the Evaluation of Congestion Control Mechanisms" has, after a slow process, appeared as an Informational RFC, RFC 5166. This is a product of the Transport Modeling Research Group. In addition, the short, multi-author PFLDnet 2008 paper Towards a Common TCP Evaluation Suite has been published.
