We present a performance model of TCP Westwood (TCPW), a new TCP protocol with a sender-side modification of the window congestion control scheme. TCP Westwood controls the window using end-to-end connection bandwidth share estimation, obtained by monitoring the ACK reception rate. An analytic model using Markov Chain techniques is developed in this paper, and then used to assess the performance improvements obtained using TCPW. The model takes into account the estimation and filtering method used in TCPW, as well as the following system parameters, bottleneck link bandwidth, buffer space at the bottleneck router, end-to-end propagation time, and error rate. The model reveals substantial TCPW gains over Reno whenever losses due to link or other errors are taken into consideration. The analytic model accuracy is confirmed by comparing to simulation results

Abstract

We present a performance model of TCP Westwood (TCPW), a new TCP protocol with a sender-side modification of the window congestion control scheme. TCP Westwood controls the window using end-to-end connection bandwidth share estimation, obtained by monitoring the ACK reception rate. An analytic model using Markov Chain techniques is developed in this paper, and then used to assess the performance improvements obtained using TCPW. The model takes into account the estimation and filtering method used in TCPW, as well as the following system parameters, bottleneck link bandwidth, buffer space at the bottleneck router, end-to-end propagation time, and error rate. The model reveals substantial TCPW gains over Reno whenever losses due to link or other errors are taken into consideration. The analytic model accuracy is confirmed by comparing to simulation results
