Packet loss in IP networks can be congestive due to IP interrupt queue overflow on the nodes, and non-congestive due to hardware failure, signal-fading or obstacles. Recognition of two types of losses can largely help TCP endpoints in making right decisions. In this paper, the authors apply the Visualized IP-based Network Simulator (VINS) to characterize the key differences between congestive packet losses and that of due to link disruption, which is non-congestive and commonly seen in wireless networks.
