Abstract

Many new transport protocols are being defined, including, for example, variants of the Transmission Control Protocol (TCP), to better match the requirements of new applications. A key issue in the evaluation of protocol flows, in terms of their performance, is how fair they are to other flows. Specifically, it is important to understand how a mix of existing and/or new protocols will interact with each other when using the same network resources. Such observations help to inform protocol design, and allow an assessment of potential impacts on users. We present a simple, yet effective, methodology for examining a specific case of inter-How fairness based solely on measurements of flow performance. As well as using an existing fairness metric, we propose a new metric which provides a richer information summary for the evaluation of fairness.
