Performance Evaluation of a Single Queue under Multi-User TCP/IP Connections

C. Adjih, Ph. Jacquet, and N. Vvedenskaya


We study the performance of several TCP connections through the bottleneck of a slow network accessed via a single queue with high capacity. Using mean-field approximation methology, we establish some asymptotical results about queue length distribution and window size distribution when the number of user increases proportionally to buffer capacity. We also give an evaluation of TCP fairness under these traffic conditions.
