In this paper, the authors investigate the congestion control capabilities of TCP-CUBIC introduced in Linux kernel 2.6 for streamlining the kernel deploying CUBIC congestion control protocol and similar high speed variants. The end-to-end nature of the congestion control module is investigated to counter the traffic CUBIC is an enhanced version of BIC and a high speed variant for Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) in which the size of the window is a cubic function of time since the last lost event. It modifies the linear growth function of the window of the existing TCP standards into a cubic function such that the scalability of TCP would improve over the fast and long distance networks.
