Evaluation of Multi-stage Framing and Retransmission Overheads with Emphasis on IBM-SNA

By Imad Al-Sughaiyer, Abdullah Al-Dhalaan and Saad Haj Bakry


AbstractThis paper presents mathematical and computer tools for the evaluation of data overheads in message streams considering a two-stage framing and a retransmission protocol for error correction: a typical case of IBM-SNA with SDLC. The paper also describes an application that illustrates the use of the tools and that shows how the various factors affecting the overheads can be balanced, so that minimum overheads and consequently maximum throughput can be achieved. The general approach used in the paper would help in the future evaluation of data overheads for other framing and transmission systems
