Receiving Buffer Adaptation for High-speed Data Transfer

New applications based on cloud computing, such as data synchronization for large chain departmental stores and bank transaction records, require very high-speed data transport. Although a number of high-bandwidth networks have been built, existing transport protocols or their variants over such networks cannot fully exploit the network bandwidth. The authors' experiments show that the fixed-size application level buffer employed in the receiver side is a major cause of this deficiency. A buffer that is either too small or too large impairs the transfer performance. Due to the varied natures of network conditions and of real-time packet processing (i.e., consuming) speed at the receiver, it is important to ensure that the buffer size is dynamically adjusted according to the perceived execution situation during runtime.
