Abstract: While there exist extensive research works on congestion control and active queue management, or the joint dynamics of a congestion control strategy with the random early detection (RED) algorithm, little has been done on the interactions between different window adjustment strategies and different queue management schemes such as DropTail and RED. In this paper, we consider a spectrum of TCP-friendly additive increase and multiplicative decrease (AIMD) parameters. At the one end of this spectrum, smooth-TCP enhances smoothness for multimedia applications by reducing the window decrease ratio upon congestion, at the cost of the additive increase speed and the responsiveness to available bandwidth. At the other end, responsive-TCP enhances the responsiveness by increasing the additive increase speed, at the cost of smoothness. We investigate the network dynamics with various combinations of AIMD parameters and queue management schemes, under different metrics. The investigation is conducted from the deployment (especially incremental deployment) point of view. We discussed the impact of the interactions on the goodput, fairness, end-to-end delay, and its implications to energy consumption on mobile hosts.
