Queue management schemes at the routers and congestion avoidance schemes at the end points cooperate to provide good congestion solutions in computer networks. While queue management schemes are still being developed, research on congestion avoidance has come a long way to serve the bandwidth requirement of the networks. Because of considerable lack on the evaluation research work, there is no consensus on the choice of the queue management algorithms over these networks. Evaluation of queue management schemes such as RED, RIO, SFB, SRR and BLUE are presented for high speed network testbed. Performance results are presented for several important metrics of interests such as delay, packet drop rate, and throughput.
