d (Delayed ACKs may complicate this, as the two data packets being acknowledged may have different CE marks, but mostly this is both infrequent and not serious, and in any event DCTCP recommends sending two separate ACKs with different ECE marks in such a case.). However, as soon as queuing delay just barely starts to begin, we will have delay > delaythresh and so 𝛼(delay) begins to fall – rather precipitously – to 𝛼min.

TCP Vegas, after all, does well in a Vegas-only environment; problems arise only when there is competing TCP Reno traffic, or the equivalent. 1 Cubic TCP measurements reported here can be directly com-pared with previous measurements reported for Standard TCP, High-Speed TCP, Scalable TCP, BIC-TCP, FAST-TCP and H-TCP. Below is a diagram of TCP BBR competing with TCP Reno in a setting where the bottleneck queue capacity is eight times the bandwidth×delay product, which is 40 ms. Suppose a TCP Vegas connection from A to B passes through a bottleneck router R. The RTTnoLoad is 50 ms and the bottleneck bandwidth is 1 packet/ms. 1 This means that there is a modest increase in the rate of cwnd increase, as time goes on (up to the point of packet loss). TCP Reno will then increment cwnd by 1 for each RTT, until the next loss event. For 𝛽 = 1/8 we have 𝛼 = 5. For a TCP Reno connection, what is the bandwidth×delay product? ) As in 8.3.2   RTT Calculations, any TCP sender can estimate queue utilization as. As we saw in 8.3.2   RTT Calculations, cwnd/RTT is the throughput, and so 𝛼 = throughput × (RTT−RTTnoLoad) is then the number of packets in the queue. Left: Average window vs p. The squares and diamonds connected by the solid lines are the average values. (a). and a It may be helpful to view Highspeed TCP in terms of the cwnd graph between losses. Eventually, BWE will fall to match the rate of returning ACKs. The threshold for Highspeed TCP diverging from TCP Reno is a loss rate less than 10−3, which for TCP Reno occurs when cwnd = 38. β In the absence of competition, the RTT will remain constant, equal to RTTnoLoad, until cwnd has increased to the point when the bottleneck link has become saturated and the queue begins to fill (8.3.2   RTT Calculations). These are not the only two streams that exist on the 16 forward and 21 reverse direction component links in this … We now determine 𝛽 dynamically: we simply count the number D of RTTs before the queue is sufficiently full, and let 𝛽 = 1/2D. For example, if the bottleneck router used fair queuing (to be introduced in 23.5   Fair Queuing) on a per-connection basis, then the TCP Reno connection’s queue greediness would not be of any benefit, and both connections would get similar shares of bandwidth with the TCP Vegas connection experiencing lower delay. 4 TCP Hybla selects a more-or-less arbitrary “reference” RTT, called RTT0, and attempts to scale TCP Reno so as to behave like a TCP Reno connection with an RTT of RTT0. In this mode, pacing_gain is 2.89 (2/log(2)) consistently, which leads to exponential growth of the number of packets in flight. n Similarly to the standard TCP, TCP-Illinois increases the window size W by (As usual, winsize is also not allowed to exceed the receiver’s advertised window size.) The TCP incast problem is made much worse when (as is often the case) the helper-node requests must be executed serially; we saw this issue before with RPC in 16.5.3   Serial Execution. This paper presents a new TCP variant, called CUBIC, for high-speed network environments. In other words, FAST TCP, when it reaches a steady state, leaves 𝛼 packets in the queue. Furthermore, FAST TCP performs this increment at a specific rate independent of the RTT, eg every 20ms; for long-haul links this is much less than the RTT. Hebrew University of University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign Jerusalem Mo Dong. TCP Vegas will try to minimize its queue use, while TCP Reno happily fills the queue. m We also build a new stochastic matrix model, capturing standard TCP and TCP- Illinois as special cases, and use this model to analyze their fairness properties for both synchronized and unsynchronized backoff behaviors. a κ An algebraic expression for N(cwnd), for N≥38, is. But also it should not take bandwidth unfairly from a TCP Reno connection: the above comment about unfairness to Reno notwithstanding, the new TCP, when competing with TCP Reno, should leave the Reno connection with about the same bandwidth it would have if it were competing with another Reno connection. (b). These represent the pacing-gain cycling within BBR’s PROBE_BW phase. Find equilibrium r and c for M = 1000 and RTT = 100 ms. (a). Rather than sending out four packets upon receipt of an ACK, for example, we might estimate the time T to the next transmission batch (eg when the next ACK arrives) and send the packets at intervals of T/4. ACKs are 50 bytes. At that same time, and perhaps also due to competition, a single A–B packet is lost at R1. Note that D is also the amplitude of the queue variation, assuming we keep the bottleneck link saturated, and so is the absolute minimum queue capacity needed. The goal was not directly to address the high-bandwidth problem, but rather to improve TCP throughput generally; indeed, in 1995 the high-bandwidth problem had not yet surfaced as a practical concern. This will last until the next reboot (or until the module is manually unloaded). m i TCP Westwood is not any more aggressive than TCP Reno at increasing cwnd in no-loss situations. That depends on circumstances; some of the TCPs above are primarily intended for relatively specific environments; for example, TCP Hybla for satellite links and TCP Veno for mobile devices (including wireless laptops). = Additionally, FAST TCP can often offset this Reno-competition problem in other ways as well. Here is a concrete example of BWE increase. TCP BBR’s initial response to a loss is to limit the number of packets in flight (FlightSize) to the number currently in flight, which allows it to continue to send new data at the rate of arriving ACKs. Studying eight combinations under various conditions {NewReno, Vegas, Illinois, Cubic} ×{RWTM, HTBM} The best combination under various conditions: {Illinois RWTM} The importance of . TCP Reno’s advantage here assumes a router with a single FIFO queue. The lower part of the diagram shows each connection’s share of the 10 Mbps (1.25 kBps) bottleneck bandwidth. PURPOSE: examine TCP responses to short and long haul 802.11n packet loss. To fix these problems, TCP Westwood has been amended to Westwood+, by increasing the time interval over which bandwidth measurements are made and by inclusion of an averaging mechanism in the calculation of BWE. In its core state, known as PROBE_BW, TCP BBR continually updates BWE as above and then sets its base sending rate to BWE. Recall from 19.7   TCP and Bottleneck Link Utilization that, with a large queue, the average bottleneck-link utilization for TCP Reno can be as low as 75%. {\displaystyle \beta _{max}=\kappa _{3}+\kappa _{4}d_{3}} α There is also the self-fairness issue: multiple connections using the new TCP should receive similar bandwidth allocations, at least with similar RTTs. {\displaystyle \beta } {\displaystyle \alpha } x (In [TSZS06] this increase is achieved by having cwnd be incremented by 1, and dwnd by 𝛼×winsizek − 1.) This is one reason for having a slightly larger queue capacity than the DCTCP analysis alone might suggest. The value of 𝛽 for values of cwnd between 38 and 83,000 is determined by logarithmic interpolation between 0.5 and 0.1; the corresponding value of 𝛼(cwnd) is then set by the formula. − As in TCP Vegas, CTCP maintains RTTmin as a stand-in for RTTnoLoad, and also maintains a bandwidth estimate BWE = winsize/RTTactual. Insights from No-Regret Guarantee • Random loss tolerance vs. Congestion loss (8Mbps, 25KB per-flow share) PCC Vivace: Online-Learning Congestion … As a connection progresses, the sender maintains continually updated values not only for RTTmin but also for RTTmax. FAST TCP will, in other words, increase cwnd very aggressively until the point when queuing delays occur and RTT begins to increase. Delay in the delivery of ACKs, leading to clustering of their arrival, is known as ACK compression; see [ZSC91] and [JM92] for examples. κ We now need to address the simplifying assumption that there was only one connection. 2 STARTUP mode ends when an additional RTT yields no improvement in BWE. = When 𝛽 is changed, H-TCP also adjusts 𝛼 to 𝛼ʹ = 2𝛽𝛼(t) so as to improve fairness with other H-TCP connections with different current values of 𝛽. As a simple example, consider the effect of simply increasing the TCP Reno additive-increase value, perhaps from AIMD(1,0.5) to AIMD(10,0.5). 14. {\displaystyle W} Rate-based sending requires some form of pacing support by the underlying LAN layer, so that packets can be sent at equal time intervals. From this we can derive the TCP Reno multiplier N(cwnd) above, by using the TCP Reno relationship cwnd = 1.2×N×p−0.5 for N synchronized connections, eliminating p and then solving for N. The next step is to define the additive-increase and multiplicative-decrease values 𝛼 = 𝛼(cwnd) and 𝛽 = 𝛽(cwnd), thus allowing us to build an actual implementation. Today, over half of all Internet TCP traffic is peer-to-peer rather than server-to-client. m The diagram above illustrates a FAST TCP graph of cwnd versus time, in blue; it is superimposed over one sawtooth of TCP Reno with the same network ceiling. κ They do not compete. Once the queue begins to fill, TCP Reno will pull ahead of FAST TCP just as it did with TCP Vegas. Many trials will be needed to determine reliably which TCP version works best in the most cases, even ignoring the impact on competing traffic. d For reference, here are a few typical RTTs from Chicago to various other places: We start with Highspeed TCP, an early and relatively simple attempt to address the high-bandwidth-TCP problem. Je ferais une comparaison des deux dernières semaines de janvier avec les deux premières semaines de février sur les serveurs nPerf (tests multithread) et 5G Mark (tests monothread) La réponse est peut-être ici ! These 16 packets will add a delay of about 16/5 ≃ 3ms; the A–B path will see a more-or-less-fixed 3ms increase in RTT. This y=x3 polynomial has an inflection point at x=0 where the tangent line is horizontal; this is the point where the graph changes from concave to convex. : Note that the longer-RTT connection (the solid line) is almost completely starved, once the shorter-RTT connection starts up at T=100. In this region, cwnd > Wmax, and so the sender knows that the network ceiling has increased since the previous loss. This is generally not a major problem with TCP Vegas, however. Qingxi Li Brighten Godfrey Doron Zarchy and Michael Schapira! by While 𝛽 is potentially configurable, typically we will have the usual 𝛽=1/2. Suppose that at time T=0 a TCP Vegas connection and a TCP Reno connection share the same path, and each has 100 packets in the bottleneck queue, exactly filling the transit capacity of 200. For smaller RTTs, the basic TCP Cubic strategy above runs the risk of being at a competitive disadvantage compared to TCP Reno. and After determining 𝛼 and 𝛽 for cwnd = 83,000, Highspeed TCP then uses interpolation to cover cwnd values in between 38 and 83,000. The 1-in-107 loss rate – corresponding to a bit error rate of about one in 1.2×1011 – is large enough that it is at least two orders of magnitude higher than the rate of noise-induced non-congestive packet losses. Because Highspeed TCP uses the lion’s share of the queue, it encounters the lion’s share of loss events, and TCP Reno is able to do much better than the 𝛼 values alone would suggest. n Convergence implies cwndnew = cwnd = ((RTTnoLoad/RTT)×cwnd + 𝛼), and from there we get cwnd×(RTT−RTTnoLoad)/RTT = 𝛼. The idea behind Compound TCP is to add a delay-based component to TCP Reno. This is admittedly an extreme case, and there have been more recent fixes to TCP Cubic, but it does serve as an example of the need for testing a wide variety of competition scenarios. So while it handles the non-congestive-loss part of the high-bandwidth TCP problem very well, it does not particularly improve the ability of a sender to take advantage of a sudden large rise in the network ceiling. And whoever has more packets in the queue has a proportionally greater share of bandwidth. α If on average R has 24 packets from the Reno connection and 4 from the Vegas connection, then the bandwidth available to these connections will also be in this same 6:1 proportion. A TCP Veno sender estimates the number N of packets likely in the bottleneck queue as Nqueue = cwnd - BWE×RTTnoLoad, like TCP Vegas. Eliminating Wmin and solving, we get Wmax = 2D2, or D = √(Wmax/2). The general idea behind TCP Illinois, described in [LBS06], is to use the usual AIMD(𝛼,𝛽) strategy but to have 𝛼 = 𝛼(RTT) be a decreasing function of the current RTT, rather than a constant. α Finally, a new TCP should ideally try to avoid clusters of multiple losses at each loss event. Suppose a TCP Westwood connection has the path A───R1───R2───B. If the transit capacity of a path is M, then the queue space needed to keep the minimum cwnd at M (and thus to keep the bottleneck link 100% utilized) is M×𝛽/(1-𝛽) ≃ M×𝛽 if 𝛽≃0. ⋅ TCP fairness performance of CUBIC with RED and Drop Tail is compared. The variable cwnd continues to increase, but cwnd and dwnd will cancel each other out over the short term, leading to a roughly constant value for winsize. d The concept of monitoring the RTT to avoid congestion at the knee was first introduced in TCP Vegas (22.6   TCP Vegas). ) ≤ Almost all of the change in throughput occurs during the PROBE_BW intervals. TCP BBR also maintains a current bandwidth estimate, which we denote BWE. See 23.6.1   Fair Queuing and Bufferbloat. d FAST TCP will try to limit its queue utilization to 𝛼; TCP Reno, however, will continue to increase its cwnd until the queue is full. TCP Vegas shoots to have the actual cwnd be just a few packets above this. TCP Veno has generally been presented as an option to address TCP’s lossy-link problem, rather than the high-bandwidth problem per se. But due to the random queue fluctuations described in the previous paragraph, this all-unmarked-then-all-marked pattern may be riddled with exceptions. A datacenter is a highly specialized networking environment. DCTCP is not meant to be used on the Internet at large, as it makes no pretense of competing fairly with TCP Reno. . 9.0. This is presumably because TCP BBR does not necessarily reduce throughput at all when faced with occasional non-congestive losses. TCP BBR also has another mechanism, arguably more important in the long run, for maintaining its fair share of the bandwidth. This represents the TCP Reno connection’s network ceiling, and is the point at which TCP Reno halves cwnd; therefore cwnd will vary from 23 to 46 with an average of about 34. On the other hand, it is small enough that the Highspeed TCP derived from it competes reasonably fairly with TCP Reno, at least with bandwidth×delay products small enough that TCP Reno alone performs reasonably well. a The fundamental congestion indicators for TCP BBR are changes to its BWE and RTTmin estimates; packet losses are not used directly as evidence of congestion. TCP Cubic then sets cwnd to 0.8×W max; that is, TCP Cubic uses = 0.2. But this is true only if losses are synchronized, which, for such lopsided differences in 𝛼, is manifestly not the case. TCP BBR is, in practice, rate-based rather than window-based; that is, at any one time, TCP BBR sends at a given calculated rate, instead of sending new data in direct response to each received ACK. {\displaystyle f_{2}(\cdot )} These all involve so-called delay-based congestion control, in which the sender carefully monitors the RTT for the minute increases that signal queuing. Therefore, TCP Hybla strongly recommends that the receiving end support SACK TCP, so as to allow faster recovery from multiple packet losses. and 4.0. 1 We will also assume that the RTTnoLoad for the A–B path is about 5ms and the RTT for the C–D path is also low. κ Integrating again, we get the number of packets in one tooth (the area) to be proportional to T6, where T is the time at the right edge of the tooth. When a packet loss does occur, TCP Veno uses its current value of Nqueue to attempt to distinguish between non-congestive and congestive loss, as follows: The idea here is that most router queues will have a total capacity much larger than 𝛽, so a loss with fewer than 𝛽 likely does not represent a queue overflow. Checking the return code is essential to determine if the algorithm request succeeded. {\displaystyle \alpha _{min}=f_{1}(d_{m})} Normally the bottleneck-router queue can absorb an occasional burst; however, if the queue is nearly full such bursts can lead to premature or otherwise unexpected losses. Note that the TCP Reno cwndR will always increment. ), We start with the TCP Reno relationship cwnd = 1.225×p−0.5, from 21.2   TCP Reno loss rate versus cwnd (RFC 3649 uses a numerator of 1.20 in this formula.) 10.0. We start with the basic outline of TCP Cubic and then consider some of the bells and whistles. The original TCP Westwood strategy was to estimate bandwidth from the spacing between consecutive ACKs, much as is done with the packet-pairs technique (20.2.6   Packet Pairs) but smoothed with a suitable running average. 4 Over the course of 200 seconds the two TCP Cubic connections reach a fair equilibrium; the two TCP Reno connections reach a reasonably fair equilibrium with one another, but it is much lower than that of the TCP Cubic connections. Even worse, Reno’s aggressive queue filling will eventually force the TCP Vegas cwnd to decrease; see Exercise 4.0 below. i κ 14.0. The bottleneck router’s queue capacity is 60 packets; sometimes the queue fills and at other times it is empty. Even with a 1-ms RTT, though, a 10 Gbps connection can have a bandwidth×delay product of 1.25 MB (800 packets); we would like to have queues be much smaller than this. When each ACK arrives, TCP Cubic records the arrival time t, calculates W(t), and sets cwnd = W(t). 2.0. If the connection keeps 4 packets in the queue (, (b). While TCP Veno may be a reasonable high-bandwidth TCP candidate, its primary goal is to improve TCP performance over lossy links such as Wi-Fi. To make this precise, suppose we have two TCP connections sharing a bottleneck router R, the first using TCP Vegas and the second using TCP Reno. Like Highspeed-TCP it primarily allows for faster growth of cwnd; unlike Highspeed-TCP, the cwnd increment is determined not by the size of cwnd but by the elapsed time since the previous loss event. β Throughout the lifetime of a connection, TCP BBR maintains an estimate for RTTmin, which is nominally the stand-in for RTTnoLoad except that it may go up in the presence of competition; see below. J'ai fais le changement sur tous les serveurs que je gère vendredi 31 janvier vers 22h30 : On est passé d'Illinois à Cubic. The influence of this ignored loss will persist – through the much-too-high value of cwnd – until the following loss event. As of version 3.5, Python did not define the constant TCP_CONGESTION; the value 13 above was found in the C include file mentioned in the comment. This is not necessarily a reduction in FlightSize, and, if it is, FlightSize may be allowed to grow, even if additional losses are discovered. The bandwidth utilization increases linearly from 50% just after a loss event to 100% just before the next loss. If this happens, the bottleneck queue utilization will rise. Another important advantage of the flattening is that when cwnd is finally incremented to the point of loss, it likely is just over the network ceiling; the connection has an excellent chance that only one or two packets are lost rather than a large burst. In this setting, once the steady state is reached, the cwnd graphs for one tooth will look like this: Let c be the maximum cwnd of the TCP Cubic connection (c=Wmax) and let r be the maximum of the TCP Reno connection. The cubic increase function is in fact quite aggressive when compared to any of the other TCP variants discussed here, and time will tell what strategy works best. TCP Cubic is currently (2013) the default Linux congestion-control implementation; TCP Bic was a precursor. We now define a cubic polynomial W(t), a shifted and scaled version of w=t3. TCP variant Effect on Gateway-based Shaping Methods. is decreasing and β α 2 However, TCP-Illinois achieves a much better throughput than Reno in wireless networks. There is one particular congestion issue, mostly but not entirely exclusive to datacenters, that DCTCP does not handle directly: the TCP incast problem. A more serious issue is that there is also a lot of other traffic in a datacenter, so much so that queue utilization is dominated by a more-or-less random component. The sender then sets delaymax to be RTTmax − RTTmin. This small 𝛽 comes at the price of out-competing TCP Reno by a large margin. (In [AGMPS10] and RFC 8257, 1/D is denoted by 𝛼, making 𝛽 = 𝛼/2, but to avoid confusion with the 𝛼 in AIMD(𝛼,𝛽) we will write out the DCTCP 𝛼 as alpha when we return to it below. d When calculating 𝛼(delay), assume 𝛼max = 10 and 𝛼min = 0.1.
