Analysis of a TCP hybrid model

By Stephan Bohacek, João P. Hespanha, Junsoo Lee and Katia Obraczka


In this paper we use hybrid systems to model and analyze the transient and steady-state behavior of multiple TCP flows that share a single common bottleneck link. The main contributions of this paper are (1) a characterization of the transient behavior of the flows, predicting their experimentally observed exponential synchronization and (2) a characterization of the steady-state regimen that is significantly more accurate than existing ones, especially under heavy traffic. The transient analysis of TCP also provides rules for network provisioning.
