Analysis of TCP Vegas in Linux 2.6.1

In this paper, the authors investigate the congestion control capabilities of TCP-CReno and Vegas introduced in Linux Kernel 2.6 for streamlining the kernel deploying CUBIC congestion control protocol. In this paper, they use multilink multisource model which would consist of a distributed optimized algorithm and will provide a fundamental layout of delay, fairness and loss properties of TCP Vegas. It implies that Vegas stabilizes proportionally for allocation of network capacity when there is sufficient buffering in the network i.e. it clarifies the mechanism through which any kind of persistent congestion may arise and also its consequences.
